The all-new Mercedes-Benz G-Class with EQ Technology

Mercedes-Benz has officially launched the all-new Mercedes-Benz G 580 with EQ Technology. For 45 years, the G-Class has stood for outstanding off-road capability and innovative, reliable technology. Now the legend is breaking new ground and setting another historic milestone. With its all-electric drive, it combines tradition with modernity and proves that it is equipped for the future – and built to last.

“Throughout its more than 45-year history, the G-Class has always used the most modern drive technology available. So, it's entirely fitting that the innovative drive concept with four individually controlled electric motors once again raises the legendary performance of our off-road icon to a new level. It even retains that familiar angular silhouette and is true to the character of our beloved ‘Geländewagen’.”
Markus Schäfer, Member of the Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz Group AG, Chief Technology Officer

Key Product Highlights:


  • 116 kWh high-voltage lithium-ion battery integrated into the ladder frame.
