The All-New Electric G-Class at a Glance

The all-new Mercedes-Benz G 580 with EQ Technology (combined energy consumption: 30.3-27.7 kWh/100 km | combined

The all-new Mercedes-Benz G 580 with EQ Technology (combined energy consumption: 30.3-27.7 kWh/100 km | combined CO₂ emissions: 0 g/km | CO₂ class: A) is fully in keeping with the tradition of the model series established in 1979. Like the conventionally powered models, it is based on a ladder-frame concept, a selectable LOW RANGE off-road gear reduction system, independent front suspension and a rigid axle at the rear.

The 116 kWh high-voltage lithium-ion battery integrated into the ladder frame ensures a low centre of gravity and enables ranges of up to 473 kilometres according to WLTP[1] . To protect it from water and dirt intrusion, it is housed in a torsion-resistant casing.

Underbody protection made from an intelligent mix of materials including carbon protects the battery from physical impact.

The all-new electric G-Class is powered by four individually controlled motors located near the wheels. They are integrated into the ladder frame and develop a maximum total output of 432 kW and a maximum torque of 1,164 Nm.

The all-new electric G-Class generates virtual differential locks via torque vectoring.

The innovative drive concept of the all-new electric G-Class enables unique driving functions for off-road use: G-TURN, G-STEERING and the intelligent off-road crawl function.

The G-ROAR sound experience includes a G-Class-specific driving sound, an “aura” and various “event” sounds.

A slightly raised bonnet, new A-pillar trim, spoiler lip on the roof and so-called “air curtains” in the rear wheel-arch flares contribute to optimised aerodynamics and interior aeroacoustics.

A redesigned off-road control unit, new OFFROAD COCKPIT and “transparent bonnet” enable a digital off-road experience.

The MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) infotainment system and a 31.2-centimetre (12.3-inch) driver and media display with touch controls are included as standard.

Advanced safety and assistance systems support drivers.

The EDITION ONE is an exclusive special model available at launch with an expanded palette of standard features.
