Mercedes-AMG boss talks electric vehicles

Mercedes-AMG is known for its rumbling V8s, but like every brand it'll soon need to make at least some electric cars to meet emissions targets. CEO Tobias Moers is confident not only can the performance meet expectations, but so can the artificially created interior and exterior noise. For an idea of where his mind is, Moers said this week that the new Porsche Taycan has “raised the bar”, but also pointed out how quickly things can change in this space.

Mercedes-AMG: Electric turbos coming soon

Mercedes-AMG will look to electric turbochargers in its next-generation models, as it looks for new ways to up power without sacrificing efficiency. Although the current range of AMG 53 models rely on an electric compressor to drive the turbocharger at low engine speeds in a move to bust lag, the range-topping AMG 63 range blends a 4.0-litre V8 engine with conventional turbos.

Mercedes-AMG One delayed nine months

The Mercedes-AMG One is an audacious project, aimed at caging Formula 1 power in a road-legal (but track-focused) body. Unsurprisingly, developing such a car hasn't been simple. Speaking with Top Gear in the UK, Mercedes-AMG boss, Tobias Moers, admitted to delays caused by adjustments on the car's powertrain. "My expectation was that we were going to have a time when we have some major issues and we have to solve them," Moers said.

Mercedes-AMG: 300kW hot hatch on the way

Turns out Mercedes-AMG can eke even more power out of a 2.0-litre four-banger, after all. The successor to the manic A45 hot hatch will have a brand new unit making 300kW. We were part of a group of Australian motoring writers to chat with Mercedes-AMG chief Tobias Moers at the Geneva motor show this week, who threw us some crumbs to work with.

AMG GT Black Series a sure thing, but no AMG X-Class

AMG boss Tobias Moers told Australian media at the 2017 frankfurt motor show that there is a Black Series version of the already heavy-hitting Mercedes-AMG GT model on the horizon. With Black Series becoming an even more performance-oriented and collectible version of any Mercedes-Benz platform it is added to over the past decade or so, the GT provides a logical basis for that trend to continue.
