New Delhi: American Axle & Manufacturing (AAM) today announced that its electric driveline technology will power AMG’s first plug-in hybrid electric (PHEV) model, the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E performance. AAM will supply the performance car’s rear-drive unit, an official statement said.

“AAM’s Electric Drive Unit provides superior vehicle performance in a compact, power-dense design,” said David C. Dauch, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, AAM. “It continues our work to be the supplier of choice for OEMs as they expand their electric propulsion and e-mobility offerings.”

According to AAM, the electric drive unit, located on the rear axle, is the first volume production application combining a mechanical all-wheel-drive system with a 2-speed electric drive module. This P3 system layout, with the electric motor on the rear axle, optimizes the weight distribution and increases the total output torque, compared to a transmission-mounted electric motor (P2 hybrid).

The Mercedes’s performance car can generate 620kW/ 843 hp at peak levels, clock a 0-62 mph time of 2.9 seconds, and achieve a top speed of 316 kph (196mph).

AAM’s e-drive will provide a power/ torque output of 150 kW/204 hp, adds performance in hybrid drive, and helps enable zero emissions.
