Electrification trend significantly increases power in cars, evidenced by the Mercedes-AMG-

E53's transition from 429 horsepower to 576, and up to 603 horsepower with Race Start mode.

The 2025 E53 Hybrid shares its engine with the GLE53 but includes a stronger electric motor, combining-

for a peak of 443 horsepower from the twin-turbo straight-six and 161 horsepower from the electric motor alone.

Features a substantial electrical range from a 21.2-kWh battery, aiming for a 62-mile WLTP-

rating in Europe, and providing over 40 miles of EV range in the U.S.

Enhances convenience with fast recharging options: 60-kW DC fast-charging-

(10-80% in 20 minutes) and an 11-kW onboard AC charger.

Introduces new driving modes: Electric for pure EV driving and Battery Hold for battery charge-

conservation, as well as novel haptic feedback in the throttle pedal for hybrid mode.

A redesigned AMG radiator grille, larger front bumper, broader front fenders, and hybrid-specific-

rear styling with quad tailpipes and spoiler are among the exterior design enhancements.

Interior upgrades are minimal, with the choice of a Superscreen or a basic layout with backlit open-pore gray ash wood.

Improves handling with double-valve active dampers, standard rear-wheel steering, and increased body shell rigidity.

Deliveries in the United States are projected to begin in the third quarter of 2024,

with European pricing indicating only a little rise over the previous model.
