Mercedes AMG A 35 spied testing

It looks like the first test model of the upcoming AMG variant has been spotted in Prague. The AMG A 35 will feature a 48 volt mild hybrid system, that also has electric turbocharging. Utilizing an electric compressor, this will provide an immediate spike in torque from the get go, so that's there's no lag until the gas turbocharger activates. Its expected that this AMG variant will be capable of a 0-60 sprint in less than 5 seconds.

The best thing they did was add an electric turbocharging because this strategy has proved itself over they years in the best example possible, hypercars. The McLaren P1 is one of them.

Really looking forward to seeing some performance tests of this new turbocharging system. Pretty incredible what Mercedes has packaged into this entry level model.

A performance hybrid powertrain from AMG is definitely exciting even though the complete specs aren't out yet. What I'm interested in knowing is if something similar will be offered in the sedan variant as well.
