Mercedes-Benz EQG (G-Class Electric) confirmed: Launch date unknown

Ola Källenius, head of Mercedes-Benz, has confirmed there will be a pure electric version of the iconic G-Class SUV, although specifics were not announced.


In a tweet, Sascha Pallenberg, head of digital transformation at Daimler, quoted CEO Ola Källenius as saying: “There will be a zero-emission #EV version of the #MercedesBenz G-Class.

“In the past there were discussions whether we should eliminate the model, the way I see things now I’d say the last Mercedes to be built will be a G-Class.”

Källenius made the comments at the AMW Kongress in Berlin.

When the G-Class Electric will be launched and what specs it will have are yet to be announced. If it’s like the EQC, the G-Class Electric will be branded as the EQG and have a unique exterior, but use the same platform as the regular G-Class.
