In the database of the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), a patent application by Daimler AG for the Mercedes EQG 580 and EQG 560 trademarks was discovered, which were registered on April 1, 2021.
It is expected that under these names the first electric modifications of the Mercedes G-Class, widely known under the popular name “Gelendvagen” (Gelndewagen is translated from German as “SUV”), will appear on the market.
The company first applied for the use of the Mercedes EQG trademark back in 2016; a couple of years ago, the appearance of the Gelendvagen electric car on the market was soon confirmed by the head of the Mercedes-Benz Passenger Cars division Ola Kallenius.
Last fall, the company re-confirmed plans for an electric version of the popular series. Electric models will account for more than 50% of Mercedes-Benz sales by the end of the decade, according to the company’s plans.
It is known that the electric Mercedes G-Class will be the first model to be built on the new modular architecture. Power is expected to range from 400 to 500 hp.
