Susie Wolff is an expert in the interplay between performance and electrification. We spoke to her about her test drive in the first battery-powered performance luxury sedan from AMG, her initial skepticism about e-vehicles, and her commitment to women in motorsport.

As one of the most successful racing drivers of all time, Wolff drove for Mercedes-Benz in the German Touring Car Championship (DTM), worked as a development and test driver in Formula 1, and today heads Formula E's Venturi Racing team.

She confesses she was "very skeptical" at the beginning when it came to electrification, and electric race cars in particular. The electric drivetrain will change the entire automotive industry, including in the field of performance. What hasn't changed is the essential influence of motorsports on vehicle development. "Motorsports is and remains the spearhead of research and development for car manufacturers,” Wolff says. As a Formula E team boss, she has a wealth of experience in this field.

We invited Susie Wolff to test drive the new Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+, the first production e-vehicle from Mercedes-AMG that’s purely battery powered. Wolff has driven many AMG models and had high expectations. In the end, she was thrilled: "The great thing about this car is that it offers the performance you need on race day but also the durability and comfort you need for everyday driving. It's not often that these two aspects merge. But in this car they do, and at a very high level.”
