Mercedes has confirmed that the new model will also be launched in India in the coming time.

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled its most-awaited G 580 with EQ Technology in global markets. Back in 2022, the auto giant announced that it would reveal an electric Mercedes G-Class in 2024. Mercedes has now formally revealed the all-electric version of its robust luxury car, which is famous for its off-road capabilities and ruggedness. The new iteration marks a shift from conventional combustion engines to an all-electric drivetrain, making it the first Mercedes G-Class with zero cylinders. The new G 580 comes equipped with four motors, enhancing its off-road capabilities.

The G 580 electric vehicle has the same boxy looks that are visible in the standard G-Class model. However, the EV gets a few cosmetic tweaks that set it apart from the original model. The most significant change comes in the form of an all-wheel-drive electric drivetrain, which enables the 3-tonne sports utility vehicle to sprint from 0 to 100 kmph in just 5 seconds.
