Thanks to electrification, the new models reportedly now has improved responsiveness off-road and greater comfort on paved roads.

Mercedes claims the mild hybrids with an integrated starter-generator (ISG) and a 48-volt on-board electrical system offer increased performance and reduced fuel consumption.

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class has always been popular in the region and will continue to do so. The fact that they kept pretty much the exact same design for the electrified version shows  the power of the iconic look of the G-Class which first came out way back in 1979.

Over the next 45 years since its inception, the G-Class transitioned from a practical offroad SUV to a design icon and status symbol.
