Luxury carmaker Mercedes-Benz continued its product offensive in the Indian market with the launch of AMG GLE 63 S 4MATIC+ Coupé.
A stylish and electrified coupé with exceptional agility and driving dynamics, the all-wheel drive AMG GLE 63 S 4MATIC+ Coupé moulds numerous vehicle personalities into one model, making it an equally practical everyday drive vehicle, said a press release.
This is the 12th AMG model available for AMG enthusiasts in the country.
Mr Martin Schwenk, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India, commented: “AMG portfolio remains the fastest growing segment for us and the launch of the AMG GLE 63 S 4MATIC+ Coupé reinforces our strong presence in the luxury performance segment.”
According to the press release, the AMG GLE 63 S 4MATIC+Coupé’s twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 produces 612 horsepower at 6500 rpm, and 850 Nm of torque at 2500-4500 rpm. The SUV Coupé is extremely agile as it sprints from 0-100 in 3.8 seconds, it said.
The AMG GLE 63 S 4MATIC+ Coupé’s 4.0-liter engine is also the first-ever AMG V8 to feature the 48-volt EQ Boost hybrid system. The 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine is fitted with an integrated EQ Boost starter-alternator.
The design, according to the release, has some radical peculiarities – the front apron, in a dynamic jet-wing design, is painted the same colour as the vehicle and features black air intakes. Imposing power domes in the bonnet and the front splitter, decked out in silver chrome, emphasise the sharper coupé design. The model is shod with 22-inch light-alloy wheels with AMG lettering as standard.
The performance-oriented all-wheel drive system continuously ensures the best possible ratio of dynamism, traction and efficiency. The best possible torque split is continuously computed according to the driving conditions and driver’s input. The transition from rear-wheel to all-wheel drive and vice versa is seamless, as the intelligent control is integrated into the overall vehicle system architecture.
Alongside traction and lateral dynamics, the all-wheel drive also improves the longitudinal dynamics for even more powerful acceleration, added the release.
