The Mercedes-AMG C 63 will have 679 horsepower, despite having only the four cylinders under the hood

The relatively new generation of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class is powered exclusively with four-cylinder engines. This means, as we’ve known for a long time, that the top-of-the-line V8 version of the AMG C 63 will be ordered and replaced with a plug-in hybrid.

British site Autocar is now giving the first reports on how powerful this powertrain should be; Although it refers directly to the automaker, this information weighs slightly less than if it were from Mercedes itself, but this magazine is usually very knowledgeable.

The four-cylinder under the hood is slated to be an M139, tuned to 476 horsepower. This means that this engine will be the most powerful four-cylinder ever produced in series production. It is assisted by a 204 kW electric motor, located on the rear axle, which gives out a total of 679 horsepower. The combined torque value should be 750 Nm.

In addition to the plug-in hybrid system, the AMG C 63 will receive a 48-volt mild-hybrid system, which will take care of the maximum possible engine start speed. The starter generator must be placed in the gearbox and generate hitherto unknown power.

One of the main advantages – of course, in addition to a certain electrification range, due to the unspecified size of the battery – is the reduction in weight over the front axle. The four-cylinder is about half a meter lighter than the eight cylinders in the current AMG C-Class. In addition, the center of gravity of the four cylinders should be lower, which leads to better agility.
