Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 Coupe Launch Date Announced, Bookings Open From September 8

Bookings for the Mercedes-AMG 4MATIC+ 53 Coupe will start from September 8, while the launch has been slated for September 23, 2020. The coupe SUV will be the first-ever AMG 53 model to be launched in India.

Mercedes-Benz India will launch the new AMG GLE 53 4MATIC+ Coupe on September 23, 2020. While we already had the AMG GLE 43 Coupe in India with the previous-gen models, this is the first time that the company is bringing in the AMG GLE 53 to our shores. In fact, this is the first AMG 53 model from the company in India. Bookings for the Coupe SUV will commence from September 8, 2020. Also, as the name suggests, the AMG coupe SUV will come with the company’s tried and tested 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive (AWD) system, which the company claims offers maximum traction and dynamism.

Powering the Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 Coupe is a 3.0-litre six-cylinder, twin-turbocharged engine that comes with the company’s EQ Boost hybrid technology. The engine is tuned to make about 435 bhp and develops a peak torque of 520 Nm. The EQ Boost starter-alternator combines a starter motor and alternator in a powerful electric motor and is fitted between the engine and transmission. It delivers an additional 22 bhp and 250 Nm of torque for a short period, and it also feeds the 48-volt onboard electrical system. The AMG GLE 53 4MATIC+ Coupe comes mated to an AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9-speed automatic transmission and it can accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in just 5.3 seconds, before reaching an electronically limited top speed of 250 kmph.
