Mercedes-Benz is currently working on a ‘baby brother’ for the G-Wagen.

Ideally marketed in the same category as the Ford Bronco, it will be available with a gas engine as well as with electric power.

The new model draws its inspiration from the Mercedes Ener-G-Force (pictured), a concept car unveiled a few years ago.

However, it will be built on a brand-new body-on-frame platform.

Mercedes calls it the MMA, and it will be used for the next-gen CLA, CLA Shooting Brake, GLB and GLA.

And the baby G-Wagen, of course.


The MMA platform is designed to be used for cars that measure around 4.5 meters.

For reference, this would make the Baby G around 300 mm (11 inches) shorter than its big brother.

Baby G-Wagen Power

There’s more good news because the baby G will be electric, but it will also be available with an internal combustion engine.

We can safely predict a hybrid version, too.

This is chiefly because Mercedes boss Ola Källenius is famously absolutely in love with the G-Wagen.

Not only does he want to keep the nameplate alive, he has been working tirelessly to expand the line-up.

This is why Mercedes recently introduced the new EQG, the electric G-Wagen, alongside its upgraded gas-powered twin.

Crucially, this is also the reason why we can expect the baby G to debut sooner rather than later.

The new MMA architecture is slated to debut sometime next year.

As for the Baby G-Wagen, we expect a full reveal by 2025 or 2026 at the latest.

Electric G-Wagen!
