Mercedes-AMG to scale back model range & diverge in design

The new design for the AMG models could incorporate more sophisticated aerodynamics and make use of other cutting edge technologies as well.

Mercedes-AMG could soon reduce the number of models in its range. According to a media report, the company will concentrate on the high-end models while scaling back its efforts on the more entry-level offerings.

The company's new boss Philipp Schiemer, is said to have stated that the AMG model range will "decrease a slight bit", while keeping it in line with the industry-wide electrification trends.

Apart from reducing the number of models in the range, reports also suggested that the AMG models could diverge its design away from the regular (non-AMG) models in the range. The new design for the AMG models could incorporate more sophisticated aerodynamics and make use of other cutting edge technologies as well.

Scheimer also stated that the AMG models will make use of advanced chassis software to compensate for the weight gain when adding batteries. However, Scheimer feels that with the advancement of rapid charging infrastructure, customers will accept AMG cars with smaller and lighter batteries, which will also aid performance.
