The Panamera rival will launch in September 2018.

The car has been conceived to rival cars like the Porsche Panamera. The production version will be shown at the Geneva motor show next March, and will go on sale in September. There will also be a range of EQ Power-branded petrol-electric hybrid versions featuring differing battery capacities, outputs and electric ranges as well.

The concept is powered by a 612hp, twin-turbo, 4.0-litre, petrol V8 that’s mated to a nine-speed automatic gearbox and fully variable four-wheel drive system. The company has stated that the car will be offered with hybrid powertrains from 2019 onwards. The operation of the new petrol-electric powerplant has been derived from the hybrid unit used by the Mercedes-Benz Formula 1 team.

According to the company's development boss, Drummond Jacoy, “We work with Mercedes High Performance Engines who build the F1 engines, and now we’ll align with the Formula E project. The entry is very recent, very now, and we’ve not sorted out exactly how it’s going to work – but there will be a close link to us as AMG.”
