Smaller Mercedes G-Class ICE And EV Coming In 2026: Report
According to recent reports, Mercedes-Benz is planning to introduce smaller versions of its iconic G-Class SUV in 2026, including both internal combustion engine (ICE) and electric versions.
The new models are expected to be positioned below the current G-Class, which is known for its off-road capabilities and luxurious features. The smaller versions are expected to be more city-friendly and aimed at a younger and more urban demographic.
The ICE version is expected to be powered by a four-cylinder engine, and the electric version is expected to use the same electric powertrain technology found in the larger Mercedes EQS luxury sedan.
The smaller G-Class models are part of Mercedes-Benz's broader plan to expand its electric vehicle lineup and offer customers more options. The company has already introduced the EQC electric SUV and plans to launch several more electric models in the coming years, including an electric version of the popular C-Class sedan.
While the G-Class is primarily known as an off-road vehicle, the smaller versions are expected to prioritize on-road performance and handling. However, the company has not yet released any official details about the new models, and it remains to be seen how they will be received by customers when they are finally introduced in 2026.
