In the British edition of Autocar, a message appeared that cars of future generations of Mercedes-AMG will be equipped with an all-wheel drive system. The publication refers to the testimony of the head of the AMG division, Tobias Moers.
The top manager of the concern said that customers are increasingly abandoning cars with rear-wheel drive. So, over 90% of buyers purchase modifications AMG E-Class with the 4WD system.
It is noteworthy that the AMG GT supercar will also be equipped with an all-wheel drive system. In particular, the top manager told the following: “When I ask customers about the GT, they begin to ask questions about the four-wheel drive. In my opinion, four-wheel drive is important for stability and security. "
In addition, Tobias Moers said that in the electrification program for Mercedes-AMG models, the company will reduce the production of cars with internal combustion engines, and will begin to manufacture more vehicles with electric and hybrid engines.
