Lightbulb Rumormill: Mercedes-Benz ready to bring hybrids to AMG

Filed under: Hybrid, Performance, Mercedes-Benz, Rumormill, Luxury

2011 Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG - Click above for high-res image gallery

The era of the green(-ish) sports car is fast approaching. Porsche unveiled its 918RSR at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show while Audi enjoys showing off one of its many e-Tron concepts at nearly every expo. Mercedes-Benz is no stranger to pairing up powerful vehicles with electric propulsion, trotting out the SLS AMG E-Cell at the NAIAS and searing our retinas in the process. Now there's word that AMG is ready to cut fuel consumption across its lineup by partnering its torquey gasoline engines with some kind of hybrid electric powertrains.

According to Daimler's head of future mobility and advanced engineering Herbert Kohler, it's a "given" that AMG vehicles in the coming years will be available as hybrids. The AMG family will still be about performance, but - like every other automaker under the sun - fuel consumption is a constant part of engineering discussions going forward.
