The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is an iconic SUV that has been in production since 1979. Known for its boxy shape, off-road capabilities, and luxurious interior, the G-Class has been a favorite of car enthusiasts for decades. Now, Mercedes is taking the G-Class into the future with the introduction of the all-electric 2024 Mercedes-Benz EQG.
So, the Mercedes-Benz EQG will be an exciting new addition to the luxury SUV market. With its electric powertrain, advanced technology, and off-road capabilities, the EQG is sure to be a hit with car enthusiasts and adventure-seekers alike. We presume that the vehicle’s high price tag may be a barrier for some buyers, but the EQG’s impressive range and performance make it a great choice for those who want to enjoy all the qualities of the legendary off-roader, now in an all-electric iteration.
2024 Mercedes-Benz EQG Powertrain
The EQG will be a part of Mercedes’ lineup of electric vehicles under the “EQ” sub-brand. The vehicle is expected to share many of its design elements and features with the current G-Class, including its boxy shape, high ground clearance, and off-road capabilities. However, it will feature an electric powertrain with a range of up to 373 miles (600 km) on a single charge.
According to rumors, the EQG will likely have multiple electric motors with a combined output of up to 500 horsepower. Two variants of the all-electric 2024 Mercedes-Benz EQG should come at least – base models will feature two electric motors, while the range-topping models could come with four electric motors, one for each wheel. The vehicle will also have fast-charging capabilities, allowing it to recharge quickly at public charging stations. The EQG is still in the concept phase, but it is expected to be released in the near future.
2024 Mercedes-Benz EQG Design
The catch with the 2024 Mercedes-Benz EQG will be in replicating the iconic design. That should be one of the key selling points of the new all-electric SUV. We expect to see familiar shapes, packed in similar dimensions, but with significantly different things under the sheet metal. The platform will be all-new, including the new suspension setup.
In spy shots released by Motor Authority, we can see that the EQG will have many similarities to the current G-Class. However, there are a few notable differences, including a closed-off grille and a different front bumper. These changes are likely due to the vehicle’s electric powertrain, which doesn’t require as much cooling as a traditional gasoline engine.
While the EQG will certainly be a luxury vehicle, it is also expected to have impressive off-road capabilities. It’s pretty clear that the vehicle will have a four-wheel-drive system, along with skid plates and other off-road equipment. This means that the EQG will be able to tackle rough terrain with ease, making it a great choice for adventure-seekers.
Interior and Technology Upgrades
As for the interior design, we expect to see a dashboard design that has a lot of things in common with other EQ models, especially in terms of the dashboard design. Of course, there’s no doubt that the overall quality will be impressive. Considering that dimensions will probably remain unchanged compared to the gasoline version, the amount of interior space shouldn’t change either. As the battery is about to be placed under the floor, the passenger space shouldn’t be compromised either.
Some reports suggest that the EQG will also have a number of interior and technology upgrades over the current G-Class. The vehicle is expected to have a large touchscreen display for the infotainment system, as well as a digital gauge cluster. The EQG will also likely have advanced driver-assistance features, including adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist.
Some sources also suggest that the EQG will also have a number of customizable features, allowing buyers to create a vehicle that meets their unique needs and preferences. The vehicle will likely have multiple trim levels and options packages, including a high-end AMG version.
2024 Mercedes-Benz EQG Release Date and Price
We expect that they will arrive sometime in the next year. One of the biggest questions surrounding the EQG is its price. While Mercedes has not yet released official pricing, but we estimate that base models could easily go over 150.000 dollars.
