Mercedes-Benz announces the 2024 introduction the EQG, a muscular electrified version of the current G-wagon. And Miami’s gonna’ love it!

Amidst a flurry of skepticism regarding an EV version of the G-Wagon, Mercedes has finally confirmed that the all-new, all-electric Mercedes-Benz EQG, will beready to hit the road in 2024. Mercedes-Benz Chairman Ola Kallenius ended the rumors and recently confirmed the EQG is a reality. Good news! The G-Wagon is a mainstay on Miami roadways, and the EQG will certainly have the dealerships scrambling to deliver. Make ours Black please.

On the heels of the EQS, the new EQS SUV will begin production soon. The EQE SUV will be officially added to the Mercedes-Benz official lineup late this year, and the EQG will follow in 2024.

The EQG is expected to be powered by four electric motors, one near each wheel, that will be individually controllable, which should improve on- and off-road driving performance. If the concept is any indication, the EQG will also come with a shiftable 2-speed gearbox for traveling far off the beaten path. The EQG will use a similar chassis setup to the gas G-class, with a sophisticated independent front suspension, which should help with on-road driving, and a rigid rear axle.

While the EQG will be instantly recognizable with its boxy G-Class shape, the electric concept replaces a traditional grille with a black panel illuminated with three-pointed stars. It is part of a the “EQ mask” that will be a signature of the EQ lineup, despite not sharing much in common under the skin. The new face debuted on the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS sedan, the first vehicle from the new electric vehicle brand.

The EQG in its concept form has four electric motors, one for each wheel, and a two-speed gearbox. If it follows the lead of the EQS family, it will use the current Mercedes 107.8 kWh battery pack. And while engineers will do their best to improve its aerodynamics, the shape and weight will make achieving a decent range figure on the new G a big challenge—though like the big new EV Hummers, we don’t think efficiency is the primary goal.

Details on motor power and other specifications are unavailable as of this report. Miamicars.com will continue to follow this story.
