2021 Mercedes AMG GT 73 appeared in a video released by Mercedes AMG to celebrate its achievements in 2019. At the end of the video, the performance division of the German company teased us about the upcoming cars in 2020 and we could notice the fully electric Mercedes AMG GT.
We are talking about a fully electric version of Mercedes AMG GT4, the 4-door version of the sports car AMG GT, which is presented by Mercedes, to compete against other cars in this category such as Porsche Panamera, which was test-driven by our colleague Suhaib Shashaa in a Special Coverage episode.
After Mercedes announced it’s going to cut more than 10,000 jobs in order to provide the needed resources for R&D efforts aiming at developing fully electric and autonomous driving systems, it seems that there is an upcoming fully electric car that may be bare the name of AMG GT 73 2021.

But nothing is official yet to support these expectations, which is based on previous Press statements made by Tobias Moers, AMG’s CEO during the launch of the concept AMG GT back in 2017. He also confirmed recently that AMG plug-in hybrid cars will be available in 2020.
But we are not talking about a hybrid here, but rather about a fully electric car, a competitor to Tesla Model S, and Porsche Taycan, which was test-driven by our website founder Mousub Shashaa and the world-famous F1 driver Mark Webber.
Until we get to see the fully electric Mercedes AMG GT, here are the mechanical specifications of its petrol sister; AMG GT 63 S, which is powered by Twin-turbo 4.0L V8 that generates 630hp and 900 Nm, and is connected to a 9-speed automatic gearbox.
