Mercedes-AMG is reportedly developing an electric flagship SUV that promises over 1,000 horsepower. Scheduled for a 2026 launch, this new model is poised to rival high-performance luxury SUVs such as the BMW XM, Lotus Eletre, Aston Martin DBX, and Lamborghini Urus.

The specifications for this upcoming SUV are impressive. It features a power output of over 1,000 hp (746 kW) and utilizes a bespoke EV platform named AMG.EA. Key features include an 800V electric platform for faster charging, a high-performance battery pack designed for extended range and durability, and axial flux electric motors by Yasa. Additionally, the vehicle will have all-wheel drive, torque-vectoring capabilities and a self-leveling active suspension system.

In terms of size, this new SUV will be significantly larger than the current Mercedes-AMG GLE 63. It's expected to measure approximately 5,100 mm in length with a wheelbase extending over 3,000 mm. This ensures more interior space and arguably better overall proportions suited to a flagship model.

Mercedes-AMG plans to start production of this ambitious project at its Sindelfingen factory in Germany starting in 2026. Prior to the production kickoff, there’s anticipation around the unveiling of a concept design that showcases what potential buyers can expect from this groundbreaking model.
