The newly-named Mercedes-AMG One hypercar will get the cameras clicking but it’s battery power that’s the real news here. Mercedes is unveiling its €10 billion EQ zero-emissions brand with the first production model, the EQ C. It’s the first purpose-built all-electric Mercedes and will be on sale next year.
If the AMG One at £2m plus is too rich, seek out the equally new AMG A35, first of a brace of new hot hatches based on the new A-class platform. This is meant to be the warm version, but with 306PS (302bhp) and 0-62mph in 4.7 seconds it’s no slouch.
Other new A-class variants in Paris will be the saloon version and, promising to be more popular in the UK, the new B-class with bigger and more flexible cabin. Also expect to see the latest Mercedes GLE.
