Back in 2019, the reports of the electric G-Class development were surfaced when Daimler CEO Ola Kallenius confirmed it through a tweet. Last year in October, The automaker reconfirmed the electric G-Class project through an official release, where it announced the plan of achieving the goal of more than 50% of global sales attributed to EVs by 2030.

Details about the upcoming electric G-Class or the EQG are scarce. However, the German brand has said that the EQG will bring the G-Class in a new avatar. As it said, "The legend will grow, and will electrify."

While the automaker is poised to electrify its portfolio, India too might expect the arrival of the EQG in near future. The automaker has already introduced its EQC in India, which is available at a price of 1.04 crore (ex-showroom).
