The exclusive Mercedes-AMG hybrid powertrain in the GLC 63 S E PERFORMANCE is designed for maximum performance. It combines the AMG 2.0-litre turbo engine with an Electric Drive Unit (EDU) on the rear axle for an inspiring driving experience with high efficiency. In addition to the clearly noticeable thrust, the unique hybrid layout also ensures balanced weight distribution – driving dynamics and handling benefit equally from this. Depending on the driving programme and driving conditions, the electric motor boosts output and torque as the situation requires, thus conveying either a particularly comfortable or a performance-oriented driving experience. Purely electric driving is also possible.
