The Mercedes-Benz EQA, EQB, EQC, and EQS have already been unveiled while the EQE has been spied making its rounds in Germany lately. The mentioned models are the electric counterparts of the A-Class, B-Class, C-Class, S-Class, and E-Class, respectively, which form the main classes of Mercedes vehicles.
Looking at the list, the only one that’s missing is the G-Class. However, a new patent filing revealed that a Mercedes-Benz EQG is in the works, which is the electrified version of the iconic SUV. Carwow claimed that the trademark filing of Daimler AG, the parent company of Mercedes, included the names EQG 560 and EQG 580 in the documents.
The EQG is expected to carry the key design elements of the G-Class, particularly its boxy body, rigid-looking surfaces, flared wheel arches, rounded headlamps, and large wheels. Meanwhile, the front grille will probably be replaced by a blacked-out panel with small three-pointed star graphics similar to the EQS and other EQ models.
The tech and luxury elements of the EQS are expected to trickle down to the EQG. With that, it will be highlighted by the 56-inch long MBUX Hyperscreen with augmented reality heads-up display, touchscreen infotainment system, passenger side display, and digital instrument cluster while the perforated leather seats will be made with leather from recyclable materials.
The EQG will likely base its drivetrain and architecture on the EQS. That means the EQG 580 trim will get at least 516 hp with a possible electric range of up to 400 miles.
The world premiere of the Mercedes-Benz EQG electric SUV is anticipated to come in 2022.
