Mercedes teased the Maybach EQS SUV, meanwhile the G-Class EV was confirmed for 2024.
Mercedes-Benz recently gave details regarding two of their sub-brands’ electrification plans. The first being Mercedes-Maybach, and the second being Mercedes-Benz G-Class. Yes, you heard that right – ‘G-Class’ now is a sub-brand of Mercedes, just like Maybach is.
Firstly, a Maybach EQS SUV was teased, displaying Maybach’s signature two-tone paint job as well as sleek horizontal LED taillights. Limited info was given beyond the teaser image. What we already know is that the regular EQS SUV will be unveiled in September, with first deliveries in Spring 2022. Expect this ultra-lux Maybach variant to arrive a few months after.
An all-electric G-Class was also confirmed. Mercedes Marketing & Sales head Britta Seeger stated the following: “In 2024, we will launch our full-electric G-Class as well. It will continue the great story of our G series.”
Details regarding the G-Class EV were scarce beyond the 2024 release date. However, Merc has filed trademarks for the names EQG 560 and EQG 580 in recent months.
This news comes not long after Mercedes teased the Vision EQXX, a concept previewing a range-topping car capable of 750 miles per charge. The full concept will be unveiled next year.
