Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S E PERFORMANCE SUV and Coupé NZ price and specs

The addition of an E PERFORMANCE hybrid powertrain to the much-loved Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S SUV and Coupé pairing creates the very first performance hybrid SUV, bringing sporty benefits to every facet of the driving experience.

Customers can once again choose between the practically focused SUV model, with its rugged charm and nuggety stance, or a curvaceous Coupé with a track record of turning heads and winning hearts.

These identically specified Mercedes-AMG siblings offer astonishing levels of accessible performance, sprinting from 0-100 km/h in as little as 3.5 seconds, yet also offering unprecedented efficiency, including the opportunity to utilise all-electric driving for trips around town.

The latest iteration of these range-topping models once again provides Mercedes-AMG SUV customers with a desirable step up from the well-received GLC 43 SUV and Coupé models.

“The Mercedes-AMG GLC SUV is an absolute success with our customers. Our two versions, with different characters for the sporty-urban lifestyle, are superior all-rounders and precisely tailored to individual customer wishes,”

Michael Schiebe, the CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH

“With the E PERFORMANCE drive in the GLC 63 S, we are also launching the first performance hybrid SUV. The all-wheel-drive system, the active rear-axle steering, and the quick-shifting transmission enhance the emotionally appealing hallmark AMG driving experience.”

The hybrid powertrain that combines a Mercedes-AMG-developed 2.0-litre turbocharged engine with an Electric Drive Unit (EDU) on the rear axle in the GLC 63 S E PERFORMANCE is a technical masterpiece.

The positioning of the compact EDU at the rear axle along with a lightweight, high-performance battery, in combination with a compact front-mounted combustion engine, ensures balanced weight distribution. This benefits driving dynamics and handling in equal measure.

The inherent design of the electric motor means its power can kick in straight away at full torque. The driver also experiences a noticeable performance increase thanks to an integrated, electronically controlled limited-slip rear differential, helping the GLC 63 S E PERFORMANCE SUV and Coupé to
accelerate out of bends with great agility.

The mechanical connection of fully variable 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive means that if slip occurs at the rear axle, the drive power of the electric motor can be transferred to the front wheels for extra traction.

At the heart of the GLC 63 S E PERFORMANCE SUV and Coupé is the most powerful series-produced four-cylinder engine in the world. This advanced 2.0-litre unit produces a deeply impressive 350 kW at 6725 rpm and 545 Nm from 5250 to 5500 rpm in its own right.

When combined with the 150 kW and 320 Nm output from a permanently excited synchronous electric motor fitted with a two-speed transmission, the new GLC 63 S E PERFORMANCE variants can achieve an astonishing system output of 500 kW and 1020 Nm. Acceleration from standstill to 100 km/h takes as little as 3.5 seconds and via the standard AMG Driver’s Package, overall top speed rises from 250 to 275 km/h.

Pricing – The new Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S E PERFORMANCE SUV is priced at $199,9001 and the GLC 63 S E PERFORMANCE Coupé at $206,9001. The Performance Ergonomic Package is one of several available optional packages, adding a further $6,900, while the ceramic composite braking system costs an additional $8,300. The eye-catching Edition 1 Package adds $12,900.

Both the GLC 63 S E PERFORMANCE SUV and GLC 63 S E PERFORMANCE Coupé will be arriving in showrooms and available to order from Mercedes-AMG retailers from 17th May.
