Mercedes-AMG C63: Next-gen to get 4cyl PHEV power - report

The next-generation Mercedes-AMG C63 could ditch V8 power all together, in favour of an emissions-friendly plug-in hybrid four-cylinder powertrain – according to a new report. Britain's Autocar claims the new C63 will be the first of a number of upcoming AMG models to use an electrified version of the brand's new 'M139' 2.0-litre turbo four which debuted in the A45/CLA45 twins, and should be launched around 2022.

Mercedes-AMG PHEVs are coming, and coming very soon

Mercedes-AMG will launch an EQ-branded battery-electric GT 4-Door by the end of 2020 with supercar performance, delivering on the promise implied by the concept version in March 2017. If you recall, the Mercedes-AMG GT concept that previewed the current six- and eight-cylinder production 4-Door models paired the familiar 4.0-litre biturbo engine with an electric motor driving the rear axle directly and with individual-wheel-variability.

The upcoming Kia XCeed Plug-in has been spied during development testing in Europe, ahead of a likely launch in 2020. It appears Kia Europe is really pushing ahead with its electrification rollout, having already released all variants of the electrified Niro crossover and 48V mild-hybrid versions of the Sportage SUV, while a plug-in hybrid version of the Ceed Sportswagon is due to hit European showrooms before the end of the year.

2020 BMW 5 Series spied

The 2020 BMW 5 Series facelift has once again been spied, this time in sedan guise. As with the Touring we spied last week, the new 5 Series sedan wears what appears to be a mildly-revised front end. The lights have been reworked to feature a signature in keeping with the latest 3 Series, while the kidney grille is heavily camouflaged.
