German automaker Mercedes-Benz is set to unveil a host of models, including the production-spec EQG at Auto China in Beijing. The SUV was shown as a concept in India last year, featuring a 3D star pattern and an LED strip along with bespoke 22-inch aluminium wheels. It is an all-electric version of the G-Class SUV and has the same boxy style and proportions. However, the improved ladder frame chassis provides more space for the all-electric motor. It is propelled by four-wheel-mounted motors, which can be controlled individually. In concept form, the EQG can travel up to 500 kilometres on a single charge. More details on the powertrain and off-road capabilities are currently unavailable, but they are expected to be disclosed at the upcoming Auto China show on April 24.

Mercedes-Benz EQG: More Highlights 

The EQG is likely to be called the G 580 once it hits the markets. Although there has been no official announcement, the car may surpass the current AMG G63's acceleration time of 4.5 seconds, which is powered by a V8 engine. The all-electric SUV in its production form is reported to come with a G-Turn feature, which enables 360-degree tank spins in place, as the electric motors on either side turn the wheels in opposite directions. The driver can choose to turn left or right with paddle shifters on the steering wheel. The G-Turn can be activated through a button on the dashboard.  As seen in the concept, the e-car will lack a front frunk, which will distinguish it from other EQ vehicles. Additionally, the model will include a storage box instead of a spare wheel carrier.

Alongside the electrified G-Class, Mercedes-Benz will also showcase the Concept CLA Class and the new AMG GT 63 S E Performance at the Auto China Show. It is anticipated that more details about the production-spec G-Class will be disclosed at this event.

Mercedes-Benz recently unveiled the EQS sedan for the global market. The car now has a larger 118kWh battery pack compared to the previous 108.4kWh. As a result, the model's range has increased by 82 kilometres. The India-spec EQS has a 107.8kWh lithium-ion battery pack and a range of 857 kilometres. With the makeover, the car is expected to offer a greater range. However, no specific launch date has been announced, but the facelifted EQS may go on sale here soon.
