Mercedes Proposes Baby G-Class To Take On Jeep Directly
This article was originally published HERE
Mercedes-Benz is plotting a rugged ‘baby’ SUV inspired by the G-Class as a flagship for its new family of ‘Entry Luxury’ models – and it will have electric and combustion-engine options.
Unlike the full-sized EQG, which will use a reworked version of the existing combustion car’s ladder-frame chassis, the compact SUV would sit on the same versatile Mercedes Modular Architecture (MMA) platform as the upcoming Mercedes-Benz CLA, which will arrive with a choice of ICE and EV power.
The proposed new SUV is currently being considered by Mercedes and would be its fifth ‘Entry Luxury’ model if it gets the go-ahead, joining four others being launched over the next three years.
