Mercedes-AMG C 63 hybrid tops C-Class lineup

One innovative feature is direct cooling of the battery cells, for which AMG specialists had to develop new cooling modules millimeters thin, which ensure a consistent, optimum operating temperature for the cells.

Charging is through the installed 3.7 kW on-board charger with alternating current at a charging station, wallbox or household socket. The Mercedes-AMG can drive around 13 km (8 miles) on pure electric power.

For the first time in a C 63, the fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive system transmits the drive power to the road and offers active rear-axle steering as standard.

Other features include an AMG Ride Control suspension with an adaptive damping system, eight different driving modes and custom sound design experiences inside and outside the vehicle.

Launched simultaneously as a sedan and a wagon, both models are based on a modified AMG bodyshell with a front end measuring 50 mm (2 inches) longer and an overall length 83 mm (3.25 inches) longer than the standard C-class.

Mercedes said the C 63 accelerates from 0 to 100 kph (62 mph) in 3.4 seconds, tops out at an electronically limited 250 kph (155 mph) and can optionally be increased to 280 kph for the sedan or 270 kph for the wagon with optional AMG Driver’s Package.

Upgraded design cues on the exterior, including AMG badging, a twin-spoke steering wheel, and special upholstery layout and a distinctive stitching pattern on the interior further differentiate the C 63.

Additional cockpit features include the MBUX infotainment system, offering several AMG- and hybrid-specific displays and functions, including a heads-up display (HUD) with display styles including Race and Supersport.

Mercedes has not yet provided pricing or availability for the vehicle, though a release is likely in the second half of 2023.
