Default Mercedes' AMG Division Considering Diesel?

Mercedes-Benz's AMG division is considering a number of fuel sources that include diesel for its future cars. According to a Whatcar report, Oliver Wiech, AMG's product manager for the C-Class, E-Class, SLK and SL did not exclude the possible use of diesel power for upcoming models.

"We are taking an open view and looking at lots of options," Wiech said, "but if you look at our announcement on the electric SLS, you can see what is in the future."

That means electricity is a definite while others such as hydrogen, solar energy and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) are possibly only secondary considerations.

A 2008 report published in WCF speculated that a new C-Class AMG super diesel worth about 368kW (525hp) and 900Nm would be built by the year 2011
