According to a reservation made with the European Union Intellectual Property Office, the name EQG could be used for the Mercedes-Benz G-Class electric.
It’s been a while since Mercedes-Benz announced that it would electrify one of its most legendary vehicles, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class . Few details have been released about this future vehicle, both in terms of timing and name possible, new information gives hope. A reservation request has been filed with the European Union Intellectual Property Office to reserve the name EQG , which would make sense for an electric Mercedes-Benz G-Class.
This information was reported by amateurs who frequent the MBEQ Club forum and who have consulted the website of the European Union Office for Intellectual Property. The name EQG takes the usual nomenclature used by Mercedes-Benz for its electric models: it includes the suffix EQ specific to all electrified models and the letter G which corresponds to the legendary model of the brand.
However, let us remain cautious: if all the reasons are good to think that these letters will be affixed on a possible Class G electric, nothing has been confirmed by the German manufacturer. They nevertheless confirm that a new model is about to be marketed, and that an announcement could be made sooner rather than later to this effect.
Still according to the reservation request, this name could be accompanied by two series of numbers, giving in the end two full names: EQG 560 and EQG 580. It is therefore possible to think that two different powers would be offered with this new model. However, there are no recorded versions 63 or 65, a sign that potential AMG performance versions could have another name.
As for the possible mechanics for such a vehicle, the bets are off. Mercedes-Benz has just given details of the upcoming hybrid and electric powertrains that will be used in AMG models, but there is no indication yet that they could be transplanted into an EQG. Nothing is said either about the platform that this new product would use.
