Mercedes has teased a new electric car which could replace the AMG GT 4-Door, and it’ll use an array of new technology. Read on for everything we know so far.

  • New electric AMG coming in 2025
  • Likely to replace the AMG GT 4-Door
  • New, more powerful motor technology
  • More than 840hp expected
  • Similar design to the current car

What you’re looking at here is likely to be a replacement for the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door, and you won’t find a thumping great V8 under the bonnet. It’s going to be an electric car, and it’ll use a selection of all-new parts.

The highlight here is the axial flux motors, which are more powerful and efficient than conventional electric motors. A full reveal of this Porsche Taycan alternative is not expected until 2025.

New Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door EV motors and performance

Mercedes-AMG is working on an all-new collection of EV parts called AMG.EA (Electric Architecture), and it’s the first bespoke performance electric car platform from the brand since the AMG SLS Electric Drive from 2013.

The brand is remaining tight-lipped about any performance details at the moment, probably because this technology is still in the very early stages of development, however it’ll use similar axial flux motors as the Mercedes Vision One-Eleven concept from last year.

Mercedes claims that axial flux technology offers “an unparalleled mix of power density, size, and weight”, and this new power unit will be paired with a new high performance battery. While there are no official power figures yet, you can expect it to have more than the 843hp you get in the current Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E Performance 4-Door.

New Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door EV design

These camouflaged teasers are your first and only look at the new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door, and it looks as though it’ll have a similar silhouette to the current car.

You can see the sleek LED headlights poking out of the wrap with a similar swoopy shape to the new Mercedes SL. There’s no grille in sight here, which makes sense seeing as there’s no engine under the bonnet to cool, but there could be some shiny plastic hiding under the disguise.

The sweeping sporty roofline looks suitably coupe-like, and there’s a massive rear wing for added downforce. You can ignore those blocky rear lights for now as these are just for development purposes, the final car is likely to have some funky LED units.
