An electric SUV called Mercedes-Benz G-Class at this week's round table with journalists writes Autoblog.
Mercedes first presented a conceptual version of the electric SUV Concept EQG in September 2021, but did not specify any specific time frame for its entry into the market. Callenius himself, after promising a zero-emission version of G-Class in 2019, stated that he was not quite sure whether G-Wagen would have any future at all.
Last fall, Callenius tested a prototype electric vehicle at the Mercedes test site in Graz, where the company usually evaluated the G-class version with the internal combustion engine.
When the EQG is released in mid-2024, it will have to compete with electrical models such as GMC Hummer EV, Rivian R1T and R1S, Chevy Silverado EV and Ford F-150 Lightning.
Mercedes-Benz reported that by 2030, he would have completely converted to electric vehicles, planning to target 40 billion euros.
