Mercedes-Benz Unveils ‘Little G’: A Compact Electric Off-Roader
Smaller, Electric, and Rugged: The Future of Off-Roading
The concept of the “Little G” made its official debut at IAA Munich 2023 when Mercedes-Benz CEO Ola Kallenius introduced it to the world. In a charming twist, even the logo that accompanied the announcement used a lowercase “g.” While it’s unlikely that Mercedes will stick with “Little G” as the official name for the production version, the electric G-Class will be designated as the EQG when it’s released to the public. It’s safe to assume that some variation of this three-letter nomenclature will be adopted for the smaller model.
So, what can we expect in terms of design? Picture a G-Class but in a more compact form. Our talented rendering artists have envisioned a pint-sized off-roader that blends design cues from the current G-Class with some EQ-specific elements, like a closed-off “grille” adorned with repeating tri-star logos and illuminated accents.
