Mercedes reveals electric luxury vehicles for on- and off-road

The Mercedes-Benz EQG concept SUV is an all-electric interpretation of the Mercedes G-class SUV. The SUV shares the G-class’s boxy shape. Engineers even copied the G-class’ jutting door handles and meticulously recreated the same “thunk” made by the G-class’ doors when they close. Instead of a spare tire mounted on the EQG’s tailgate, there’s a storage box that can hold a charging cable.

Mercedes plans to produce a vehicle based on this concept, and announced that it will even drive it through the same Austrian mountain off-road course where the internal combustion-powered G-class model is tested. Each wheel of the EQG is powered by its own electric motor, according to Mercedes, to allow for maximum four-wheel-drive control.

The Mercedes-Maybach EQS is an opulant large electric SUV.

Mercedes also revealed the Mercedes-Maybach EQS, a large luxury SUV intended mostly for on-road use. Mecedes-Maybach is the automaker’s ultra-luxury sub-brand with models and prices that compete against brands like Bentley.

Like the Mercedes-Benz EQS sedan, the Maybach EQS SUV has a glass panel that covers the entire dashboard giving the impression of a single enormous touchscreen. On the outside, it has a two-tone paint job, an option on Mercedes-Maybach models. As in the EQS electric sedan, the doors can open automatically as the driver approaches. Mercedes has announced it intends to put a large electric SUV, the Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV, into production in 2022. The Maybach SUV would be based on that.

The Mercedes-AMG EQS has specially designed high-performance electric motors.

The Mercedes-AMG EQS, also revealed Sunday, is a high-performance version of the Mercedes-Benz EQS sedan. Mercedes-AMG is Mercedes’s high-performance sub-brand. Not just a concept car, this will be the first fully electric AMG production model.

It has two high-performance electric motors, one each for the front and back wheels, producing at total of 649 horsepower. Power output can briefly reach 751 horsepower using a special Race Start mode. The car’s electric motors were specially designed for high performance use performance demands, according to Mercedes.

Mercedes designers also created special sounds for what would otherwise be a largely silent driving experience. The sound, which is generated both inside and outside the vehicle, can vary depending on the driving mode, such as Comfort, Sport or Sport+. In Sport, it’s a gentle hum with an added jet-like overtone during acceleration. In Sport+ it takes on a subtle rumble suggestive of an internal combustion engine.

Nimbl Evolution Debuts As Luxury F-350-Based Expedition Vehicle

We’ll finally confess it – yes, small and smart motorhomes are cool and everything but nothing can beat a giant luxury camper. Especially if we are talking about living a life on the road, not just going on summer vacation trips. The “community of explorers that live and survive on the capabilities of their vehicle” is exactly the target of this Ford F-350-based camper. Meet the Evolution, a product of a Sacramento-based company called Nimbl.

Designed and built by a team of experienced engineers and mechanics, who happen to be lifelong explorers, the Evolution rides on a modified F-350 chassis with Icon Suspension System with 35-inch tall tires on all four corners. Under the hood is the Blue Oval’s 7.3-liter V8 mated to a 10-speed automatic gearbox.

More important, however, is the living area – a monolith monocoque composite construction made of a combination of fiberglass and carbon fiber. The habitat has a minimalistic design but features everything one could ask for when living on the road, including two-burner induction cooktop, DC fridge, optional microwave, LED UV water sterilization system, diesel heater and hot water system with multi-stage filtration system, 80 gallons of freshwater and a 24-gallon grey water tank, optional air conditioning, and many more.

“The Nimbl Evolution’s habitat is designed with functional creature comforts so you can take care of what’s most important on the road – yourself,” the company explains. “Ideal for two, the habitat is well appointed for daily tasks: cooking, personal hygiene, relaxing in the custom upholstered dinette (which can be converted into a second bed for the little ones), and enjoying a great night’s sleep in the queen size, memory foam bed.”

ExpeditionPortal.com reports that pricing for the new Nimbl Evolution starts at $249,000, which includes a $70,000 vehicle allowance and the custom aluminum flatbed.
