At the 2023 Munich exhibition in early September, Mercedes-Benz confirmed the expansion of its iconic G-Class lineup with a small car model, tentatively nicknamed “Little G”.
This miniature version of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, similar to the original, has good multi-terrain performance and top-notch luxury.
First of all, the mini Mercedes-Benz G-Class is said to be named G-Class. This wordplay naming (the letter G is lowercase to emphasize the miniature form factor compared to the original G-Class) was revealed at the Munich 2023 exhibition via the company’s teaser photo.
In terms of design, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class Mini certainly retains most of the square frame of the original. To ensure good off-road capabilities, a high, ventilated chassis and numerous multi-terrain equipment will be used for this vehicle. The smaller size means the car will have better approach, overtaking and exit features than the original.
However, the chassis of the mini Mercedes-Benz G-Class is a factor that prevents this version from overtaking the regular G-Class. The car does not use a split body structure like the G-Class, but instead uses a monocoque body with an MMA chassis, like the CLA concept launched by Mercedes in September.
Mercedes-Benz chose the above platform for the Mini G-Class because the car will have a pure electric version and the MMA chassis supports both gasoline and electric versions well.
The Mercedes-Benz G-Class Mini is expected to launch in 2026 and production at the Hungarian factory is scheduled for late 2026. The price of this version is expected to be more than 1/3 of the “full size” version, starting at around 55,000 USD (1.35 billion VND).
