Mercedes-AMG has confirmed the GT Concept is heading to production.
The Mercedes-AMG GT Concept made its debut in March at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, previewing a four-door model injected with the AMG GTâ€™s DNA.
Speaking to Automotive News, Mercedes-AMG chairman Tobias Moers spoke about the GT Concept, confirming a production version will arrive in 2018 and a plug-in hybrid model will be â€œnot far beyond.â€
So at first, the four-door GT model will be available with a conventional powertrain before AMG adds the German automakerâ€™s EQ Power+ electrified technology to the model.
And donâ€™t expect the production GT Concept to be the only electrified model in Mercedes-AMGâ€™s future lineup.
Moers also said plug-ins will eventually find their way across AMGâ€™s portfolio and pure electric vehicles are also in the works. â€œYeah, why not? Because we are not able to change the future,â€ he said.
â€œWe have to adapt to these new requirements and regulations, and we have to move forward and find new innovative solutions.â€
Mercedes-AMG is also working on a hypercar dubbed â€œProject Oneâ€ and that should arrive by the end of 2018.
