Back in 2019, Mercedes-Benz sent a jolt through the automotive industry when they announced that they were working on a zero-emission version of their G-Class SUV dubbed the EQG. Now, CEO Ola Källenius has provided more info on when, exactly the electric G-Class would become available to the general public. Per a report from Autoblog, Källenius told members of the media that the special vehicle should be brought to market by the end of 2024.
Mercedes-Benz provided a close-up look at a concept version of the EQG back in 2021 — originally announcing that it would be available in 2025 — and Källenius reported that an early prototype he’d tested at Mercedes-Benz’s G-Class testing grounds in Graz, Austria was more than up to snuff. “From now on, going off-road is electric,” he told reporters. Mercedes-Benz also plans to make its fleet of vehicles fully electric by 2030.
Currently, an exact date of arrival and pricing information for the Mercedes-Benz EQG has yet to be revealed. After all, it’s a full two years away. However, more info on the powerful electric SUV is likely to surface soon.
