AMG's foundation stone was laid back on 1st of June 1967. To mark the 55th anniversary of the performance and sports car brand, the production version of the Mercedes-AMG ONE is celebrating its world premiere. The two-seater super sports car brings the world's most modern and efficient Formula 1 hybrid drive technology from the race track to the road for the first time. The performance hybrid produces a total output of 782 kW (1063 hp) from one combustion engine and four electric motors, with a top speed capped at 352 km/h. The extremely complex development was carried out in close cooperation with the Formula 1 experts at Mercedes-AMG High Performance Powertrains in Brixworth. The Mercedes-AMG ONE will also officially be seen in action for the first time in the UK, as part of the Festival of Speed at Goodwood (23 to 26 June 2022).

The use of powertrain from the forthcoming JUKE Hybrid reflects both the additional performance it offers in the production version, as well as the improvements to its efficiency and emissions. The JUKE Hybrid powertrain consists of a new generation, state-of-the-art Nissan internal combustion engine specifically developed for working in a hybrid powertrain application. It produces 69kW (94hp) and 148Nm of torque. On the electric side, the main electric motor produces 36kW (49hp) and 205Nm of torque, while there is a 15kW contribution from a high voltage starter/generator, all of which is fed by a 1.2kWh water-cooled battery. The net result is a powertrain providing 25% more power than the current petrol engine option, with a fuel consumption reduction of approximately 40% in the urban cycle, and up to 20% combined.
A breath of fresh air for the compact hybrid vehicle segment: the new SEAT Leon e-HYBRID is now available. The drive of the Spanish compact takes over the combination of a highly efficient gasoline internal combustion engine and a powerful electric motor. The new SEAT Leon e-HYBRID can travel up to 72 kilometers purely electrically and can even be recharged from a standard 230-volt socket. Taking the current e-mobility premium into account, prices start at 27,085 euros. More and more buyers are deliberately choosing a vehicle with a hybrid drive. With good reason: while the vehicle is quietly driven around the city with no local emissions and with no local emissions, both engines together become a real powerhouse at higher speeds or when overtaking maneuvers: in the SEAT Leon e-HYBRID, they jointly produce up to 150 kW ( 204 PS), which accelerate the vehicle from standstill to 100 km / h and further up to 220 km / h in 7.4 seconds. A 6-speed dual clutch transmission ensures a high level of comfort and efficient propulsion.
