The German automaker was spotted filing for two trademarks on April 1, 2021, with the EUIPO (European Union Intellectual Property Office). These include the names “EQG 560” and “EQG 580,” both of which should go on the upcoming electric G-Class variant. The numbers here are similar to those previously trademarked for the EQS sedan, but they are not the same. There will also be an EQS 580 model as well as an EQS 450, but there is no EQS 560 currently trademarked.
The EQS 580 is expected to arrive sporting a dual electric motor setup combining to produce 469 horsepower and 560 lb-ft of torque. Since the gas-powered G-Class and S-Class have traditionally shared engines, it seems likely that the EQG and EQS will share electric motors. The EQS 560 will likely be a less powerful version, possibly with a different battery size.
