Regenerative braking features with four levels of severity, enabling one-pedal driving in certain driving situations.

The E Performance comes with AMG’s Ride Control+ adaptive suspension package, which can adjust “the damping force for each wheel to suit the situation in just a few milliseconds”, and an agility-enhancing dynamics control system which controls settings for the 4WD system, limited-slip differential and ESP. Ceramic brakes are also fitted as standard. 

Design changes over the standard car are subtle, limited chiefly to a new front bumper modelled on the two-door GT, bespoke badging, new exhaust outlets and exclusive 20in and 21in wheel designs. Otherwise, the PHEV is almost visually and technically identical to the recently facelifted regular GT 4-Door Coupé.

It’s the same story of subtle adaptations inside, but, as with other Mercedes PHEV models, there are a number of hybrid-specific displays for the MBUX infotainment system, including an EV range indicator, real-time power consumption data and an electric motor power gauge. 

AMG chairman Philipp Schiemer said: “With the new GT 63 S E Performance [4-Door Coupé], we’re transporting our brand DNA into an electrified future. In doing so, we’re following our own technical path, which is what has always made AMG so special and desirable. 

“Developed entirely in Affalterbach, the performance hybrid offers a fascinating level of driving dynamics and rightly bears our new technology label E Performance.

“With this new concept, we’re also opening up to new target groups who will experience Mercedes-AMG as the performance luxury brand of the 21st century.”
