Mercedes-Benz has offered a first look at its upcoming Vision AMG performance EV, offering its customers and fans a glimpse of Mercedes-AMG‘s all-electric future. The four-door coupe is defined by a long wheelbase and fluid lines featuring a sharply chiseled shark nose, star-shaped headlamps, powerful shoulders, an AMG-specific grille with illuminated bars, and a distinctive active spoiler.

The car’s epic proportions rest on 22-inch wheels and are powered by an innovative Axial Flux Motor developed by Mercedes-Benz-owned subsidiary YASA. Equipped with a new silicon-anode battery developed in collaboration with battery material materials company Sila Nanotechnologies, Mercedes estimates its cars will offer 20 to 40 percent more charge capacity than the traditional lithium-ion found in today’s electric cars. All drivetrain components are made entirely from scratch, falling under the automaker’s new dedicated AMG.EA platform that’s currently under development for Mercedes’ new all-electric performance models.

The Vision AMG’s racing livery and visual details are a direct reference to the successful Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 team as evident through its silver paintwork, Petronas green accents, exposed carbon fiber, and star patterns across the shoulders and rear fenders. Designed to be a functional sports car, the Vision AMG will also offer plenty of space for four with an intelligently designed interior floor,

Look for the Vision AMG to launch in 2025 alongside three other EV platforms as part of Mercedes’ goal to switch to an all-electric lineup by 2030.
