Rumour: Next-gen Mercedes-AMG C63 to get 4-cylinder hybrid

  •  

According to a media report, the next-generation Mercedes-AMG C63 will get a four-cylinder hybrid engine instead of a V8 engine.

The engine is said to be an electrified version of the turbocharged 2.0-litre M139 engine that powers the A45 AMG. In the A45, it produces 416 BHP and 500 Nm. The engine is expected to get a 48V mild-hybrid system and it could develop 503 BHP and 750 Nm. The engine could be paired to a 9-speed automatic gearbox and an all-wheel drive system. The weight of this hybrid power plant is said to be less than the V8 engine that powers the current C63.

The electrified powertrain is also expected to power other AMG cars like the C43 and the GLC 63. The next-gen C63 AMG is expected to be launched in 2022.
