Mercedes-Benz has unveiled its latest plug-in hybrid, the 2024 Mercedes-AMG S 63 E Performance. What makes this S-Class so special? It’s powered by a plug-in hybrid powertrain that has the most power ever offered in an S-Class.

2024 Mercedes-AMG S 63 E PERFORMANCE

It’s powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 and a rear axle mounted electric motor that generate a combined 791 horsepower and 1,055 pound-feet of torque. That’s enough power to accelerate the big sedan from 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds. The top speed is limited to 180 mph.

All that power is sent to all four wheels via a nine-speed automatic and an all-wheel drive system. The rear axle steering can adjust the wheels 2.5 degrees.

The plug-in hybrid powertrain gets its power from a 13.1 kWh battery pack that’s mounted above the rear axle. Mercedes-Benz hasn’t announced the EV range, but it probably won’t be much, since the powertrain is designed more for performance than efficiency.

The Mercedes-AMG S 63 E Performance rides on an adaptive air suspension that can lower the sedan by 0.4-inches at speeds above 75 mph. Active roll stabilization has been added to reduce body roll and there’s an aluminum stabilizer under the V8 to stiffen up the sedan.
