For decades, the legendary G-Wagen has been considered an ultimate off-roader. Things changed in the 21st century and today, this nameplate is rather a status symbol than a desirable off-roader, which is super easy to conclude, considering the model’s price tag. Of course, plans with this model are big for the future as well and we all know what the future brings – electrification. That’s why everyone eagerly waits to see how the 2024 Mercedes-Benz EQG is going to look, once it enters serial production.
So far, the company presented a concept version, which seems quite production-ready. Now, we are waiting to see the production model, which should keep the flavor of the original model but also make it more futuristic, and adapted to the world of EVs.
From what we know so far, the production should start sometime in the next year.
2024 Mercedes-Benz EQG Design
So, one of the first things that come to mind is how the 2024 Mercedes-Benz EQG is going to look. If we can rely on what the German manufacturer presented with the 2021 concept, it’s quite obvious that the all-electric G-Wagen will retain its recognizable boxy shape. Moreover, all ingredients are here, including a very similar front-end design, which is complemented by a couple of futuristic details, mostly in terms of prominent lighting groups.
What’s also important to keep in mind is that the new 2024 Mercedes-Benz EQG will stick to its roots in terms of chassis design. In other words, we are about to see a proper body-on-frame SUV, with a proper ladder frame. When it comes to suspension setup, the front end should come with a sophisticated multi-link independent setup, while the rear axle will probably be rigid. Such a combination should provide a perfect blend of comfort and off-road performance.
When it comes to interior design, the 2024 Mercedes-Benz EQG won’t follow the latest trends in the automotive industry and offer a super-simplistic layout with a massive center screen. Instead, we expect to see a typical dashboard design, similar to other Merceds-Benz models, with all those flavors that characterize the current G-Class. Naturally, everything will be emphasized with new tech features.
When it comes to seating configuration, there’s no doubt that this will remain a two-row SUV, as the overall proportions are expected to remain the same. The battery will be positioned under the floor, so the passenger space, as well as the cargo area, shouldn’t be compromised.
2024 Mercedes-Benz EQG Drivetrain
According to the officials, the 2024 Mercedes-Benz EQG will come with a pretty serious setup, which will include four electric motors. Each motor will be responsible for one wheel, which should ensure excellent off-road potential. However, power figures are still unknown.
When it comes to the battery pack, some sources suggest the same 108-kWh pack from the EQS but we expect something larger, something that would ensure respectable autonomy. Besides good range, we also count on advanced battery technology, with 350kW charging speed, which would ensure 80 percent of the battery is recharged in just 30 minutes.
2024 Mercedes-Benz EQG Release Date and Price
The latest reports suggest that the 2024 Mercedes-Benz EQG will arrive sometime in the next year. Details about the price are still unknown but we have no doubt that the new model will cost even more than the current gasoline-powered G-Class.
