Mercedes-Benz recently launched the all-new G 580 with EQ Technology, a groundbreaking addition to the iconic G-Class series established in 1979. The new model combines a traditional design with state-of-the-art features to set the bar in the electric luxury SUV market.

The G 580 possesses a 116 kWh high-voltage lithium-ion battery integrated into the ladder frame to provide a low center of gravity and a remarkable range of up to 473 kilometers. A durable, torsion-resistant casing safeguards the battery against water and dirt intrusion, while underbody protection made from a blend of materials, including carbon, shields it from physical impact.

The electric G-Class boasts four individually controlled motors near the wheels, delivering a maximum total output of 432 kW and a torque of 1,164 Nm, providing exceptional performance on and off-road.

Off-Road Capabilities

The all-new electric G-Class introduces unique off-road driving functions, including G-TURN, G-STEERING, and an intelligent off-road crawl function, enhancing the vehicle’s adaptability to challenging terrains. This innovative model also features virtual differential locks through torque vectoring, ensuring exceptional off-road performance and maneuverability.

Enhanced Driving Experience and Safety Standards

The G-ROAR sound experience, exclusive to the electric G-Class, includes a G-Class-specific driving sound, an “aura,” and various “event” sounds, revolutionizing the auditory experience of driving. Furthermore, the vehicle’s aerodynamics and interior aeroacoustics are optimized with a slightly raised bonnet, new A-pillar trim, spoiler lip on the roof, and “air curtains” in the rear wheel-arch flares.

The advanced MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) infotainment system, a 31.2-centimeter (12.3-inch) driver, and a media display with touch controls come standard, providing a seamless and technologically advanced driving experience. Additionally, advanced safety and assistance systems are incorporated to support drivers, ensuring a safe and reliable driving experience.

Exclusive Launch Model

The EDITION ONE special model, available at launch, offers an expanded palette of standard features. This exclusive variant embodies the pinnacle of luxury, performance, and innovation, catering to enthusiasts seeking the ultimate driving experience.

As Mercedes-Benz continues to push the boundaries of automotive innovation, the all-new G 580 with EQ Technology promises to redefine electric SUVs, setting a new benchmark for performance, off-road capabilities, and luxury in the electric vehicle segment.
