The electric Mercedes-Benz Concept EQG is an automotive icon reimagined

It was a significant arrangement when the genuinely pristine Mercedes-Benz G-Class was uncovered in 2018. It just offers about six parts with the past G-Class, which had been generally something very similar since 1979. It demonstrated a dubious upgrade, with perfectionists denouncing the gentler styling, too-nerd inside and more current driving qualities. In any case, there’s no denying the new G-wagen is the best one ever, holding the G’s appeal and driving person while being a superior vehicle – also a gigantic deals achievement. Presently, the G-Class is genuinely entering the future with the introduction of the Idea EQG on Sunday, a close creation take a gander at the completely electric G that will go on special two or three years.
Presently, this idea isn’t coming as a shock. At the uncover of the G-wagen in 2018 Arnold Schwarzenegger showed up, and he got Daimler’s then-Director Calorie counter Zetsche to guarantee the G would be a piece of Mercedes’ full charge plan. Then, at that point in 2019, current Daimler President Ola Kallenius affirmed that a G-Class EV was underway. Yet, the uncover of this Idea EQG implies the creation vehicle is not too far off, with an introduction conceivable when 2022.


Critically, the Idea EQG actually appears as though a G-Class – the body is almost indistinguishable, all things considered. It has the EQ-brand name dark board grille with an enlightened edge and Drove squircles making the figment of a grille design. The genuine admissions in the lower front guard additionally have a squircle example, and there are new underbody trim pieces apparent. Round lights as an afterthought mirrors reverberation the exemplary round headlights, and the rooftop rack has a coordinated light bar.
The brightening doesn’t stop there. The EQG’s side strips light up, there’s one more light bar at the rear of the rooftop rack and the ring around the extra tire transporter is illuminated, as well. All things considered, it’s at this point not really an extra tire transporter: It’s a lockable stockpiling compartment that is intended for charging links, and the squircle shape is enlivened by wallboxes. I’m fixated on the 22-inch aluminum wheels, the first run through a monoblock-style configuration has been utilized on a G-wagen, and the two-tone paint finish is a first for the model as well. Likewise, while it’s not noticeable in photographs, the rooftop rack clearly has an enormous G in the middle.
Mercedes is keeping the greater part of the EQG’s specialized subtleties confidential, however there are some significant things we do think about. The EQG sticks with the ordinary G-wagen’s stepping stool outline, with the battery pack coordinated into the casing for a low focal point of gravity. It actually has an autonomous front suspension and a strong back hub, however the arrangements have been uniquely adjusted to oblige the batteries and electric engines. Concerning those electric engines, there are four of them – one at each wheel. Mercedes says the engines are mounted “near the wheels” and can be controlled exclusively, which is an aid both for on-street execution and rough terrain ability.
The EQG’s ability will be quite serious – likely stunningly better than the ordinary G’s – and Mercedes says its rough terrain qualities will be one of a kind. Locking differentials have consistently been a G-Class trademark, yet with four autonomously controlled electric engines that can give moment force and have exact force vectoring ability, diff storage spaces are pointless. It’ll likewise have a shiftable two-speed gearbox for rough terrain gear decrease, and Mercedes guarantees “colossal” pulling power. Likewise with each and every other G-Class, the EQG will be demonstrated on the Schöckl mountain test track in Graz, a 3.5-mile course that arrives at almost 5,000 feet and has angles of up to 60 degrees. Mercedes says the EQG will actually want to climb a 100% grade very much like the gas-controlled models.


Presently hold on for me as I theorize a little. Mercedes hasn’t delivered inside photographs yet, yet my bet is that the EQG will have an enormous touchscreen running the brand’s most recent MBUX framework. Given the idea of the G-wagen’s dashboard configuration, I don’t know how that will look – I question the screen will have the S-Class’ pseudo-gliding look. As far as specs, I think a scope of around 300 miles on the EPA cycle would bode well, yet that relies upon the size of the batteries. With its four electric engines I believe we’re certain to see the EQG offer more than 1,000 drive, however it very well may be accessible with different force levels. Also, perhaps EQG could even get back tire controlling and customizable air suspension, two elements that have never been presented on the G-Class previously. In any case, that is simply me dreaming.
Mercedes-Benz COO Markus Schäfer says he needs to “move clients to change to electric versatility with persuading items,” and that the G-wagen “satisfies this assignment impeccably.” Emmerich Schiller, overseeing overseer of the new G division and head of rough terrain item improvement, adds that energizing the G-wagen is “just the consistent following stage” in the SUV’s set of experiences. As an enormous enthusiast of the model, I can’t clash. It might not have the trademark V8 thunder of the current G-Class, yet I think the advantages of an EV powertrain will intrinsically suit the G’s character and far offset the reactions demanded at the EQG from G-wagen idealists. Furthermore, it’ll in any case have that notable rifle-bolt entryway lock sound, and that is all that truly matters.
