4Matic All-Wheel Drive is The Future of AMG, Mostly

The Willow Springs circuit in the US recently held a “Best of AMG” event for journalists from around the world, where all current AMG models available in the land of the free were present, along with new AMG boss Tobias Moers.

”It [the adoption of AWD] depends on the segment,” Moers told Motoring. “We have certain markets where we have both cars [rear and AWD E 63] available… and the take rate is more than 90 per cent. So we get our answer out of the customers.”

When asked about the current incompatibility of 4Matic and right-hand drive, the AMG boss sounded pretty sure when he said that future generations of the should most likely address that issue, saying that Mercedes-Benz can't “do that mistake twice.” A driver switchable awd/rwd system would probably please everyone, if you ask us...
