Hence, it could feature a 108 kWh battery with electric motors capable of delivering 523 hp power and 856 Nm torque. However, Positioning-wise, the EQG 560 could be below the EQG 580.
Mercedes’ Electric plans for the Indian market
While Mercedes had already launched the EQC in India in 2020, it expects to introduce the EQS sedan sometime in 2022. Besides, there are plans to assemble EQ models in India.
It could take some time for the EQG to make it to the Indian roads because of the lack of proper infrastructure. However, the petrol-powered Mercedes AMG G63 and the diesel-based Mercedes G 350D 4MATIC are already available in India.
