Additionally, the new HPB 150 is based on the high-performance and directly cooled battery cells of the HPB 80, the energy content has been increased from 6.1 in the HPB 80 to 13.1 kWh in the HPB 150 and as a result, the all-electric range is increased to 33 km.

The 4.0 litre V8 biturbo engine generates a maximum output power of 802 hp and 1430 Nm of torque. The acceleration from 0-100km/h is achieved in 3.3 seconds and the top speed is set at an optional 290 km/h underlining the dynamic driving performance. In addition the new model has been equipped with systems such as AMG Ride Control + suspension, AMG Active Ride Control roll stabilisation and rear-axle steering as standard to ensure a wide spread between driving dynamics and comfort.

The new S63 AMG features a 190 hp electric motor positioned at the rear axle, the motor is integrated with an electrically shifted two-speed transmission and the electronically controlled limited-slip rear differential to form a compact electric drive unit (EDU).
