Mercedes-Benz will flank its upcoming flagship electric sedan with an AMG-branded model that will compete with Porsche and Tesla Inc.’s high-performance battery cars.

The sporty version of the EQS will go on sale in the second half of this year, Philipp Schiemer, chief executive officer of Mercedes-AMG, told reporters. It will be part of a broader range of plug-in hybrid and electric cars coming from AMG.
