In January of 2018, Arnold Schwarzenegger, an avid fan of the G-Wagen, elicited a rare promise from the then Chairman of Daimler AG, Dieter Zetsche who vowed to deliver an electric G-Class line. Three years later, an electric concept of the legendary all-terrain vehicle has been officially unveiled at the IAA Mobility 2021 show in Munich accompanied by a ’70s space opera video seen above.

The new Mercedes-Benz EQG bears the G-Class’ signature boxy design with the addition of futuristic glowing accents and 22-inch polished aluminum rims. A closer look reveals a Black Panel Grille illuminated by rounded LED blocks in a 3D effect and white illuminated bands that wrap around the exterior mirror housing and sides. Significant aesthetic changes are seen from the top view, revealing a gloss black roof cover with an unmistakable “G” placed in the center, as well as an LED strip searchlight at the front of the roof and a red light strip on the rear of the roof rack. The spare wheel cover at the back is replaced with an illuminated lockable box for storing charging cables and other travel accessories.

In terms of build, the EQG comes equipped with four individually controlled motors, an independent suspension on the front axle, a shiftable 2-speed gearbox delivering a dynamic off-road driving experience, and batteries integrated into the robust ladder frame body to ensure a low center of gravity. As all-electric vehicles deliver full power at the first revolution, the EQG provides considerable torque and controllability on steep terrain.

“We want to inspire our customers to switch to electric mobility with convincing products. An icon like the G-Class fulfills this task perfectly,” emphasizes Markus Schäfer, Mercedes-Benz COO.

Stay tuned for more details regarding the newly-revealed EQG, and take a look at the images of the vehicle below.
