An SUV, like a G-wagon with an ICE, promises tough off-road, but no emissions from the tailpipe. EQG is expected to play an important role in that strategy, as German automakers are heavily aiming to capture most of the luxury electric vehicle market in the coming years.

The EQG exhibited at the Seoul Motor Show is a concept format. But it looks ready to go into production. As Mercedes-Benz explains, the EQG is a cross-country vehicle that is faithful to its heritage of more than 40 years and takes a step into the future. Automakers explain that the Concept EQG combines its iconic origins and uncompromising off-road capabilities with the futuristic elements of the Mercedes-EQ world.

When it comes to design, a pure electric SUV has the same contours as its ICE counterpart. However, there are some distinctive design elements that exhibit zero emission characteristics. The characteristic round LED headlamp with integrated circular LED daytime running light is adopted. The front grille gets blue LED dots in the concept model and may be converted to chrome decoration in the production model.

Other design elements include a clamshell bonnet, dual-painted Maibach color theme, a circular LED turn indicator integrated into a glossy black ORVM, flared wheel laces, and a chunky silver-colored bumper with black accents. Includes plate-like wheels instead of traditional spokes. At the rear, there is a smooth horizontal LED taillight located directly above the bumper, and a square glossy black wheel cover located in the center of the tailgate. There is also a roof rack with a sleek LED stop lamp integrated into the rear.

The design is of course eye-catching, but the car’s specifications and features haven’t yet been revealed by the car giant. Mercedes-Benz not only unveiled the EQG concept at the Seoul Motor Show, but also exhibited four all-new electric vehicles: EQE, Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC +, EQS and EQB.
