The luxury car using the Mercedes-Benz EQG electric motor will be powered by a Silicon anode battery from Sila.
Mercedes-Benz plans to incorporate a new high-energy-density battery into its upcoming electric G-Class from 2025, which is a solution to the problem of how to power those who need it. large electric vehicles without increasing their weight.
According to Mercedes-Benz, the battery, made by start-up Sila Nanotechnologies, uses a silicon anode and has a 20 to 40 percent higher energy density than existing equivalent batteries. Mercedes-Benz is the first publicly announced automotive customer of California-based battery startup Sila Nanotechnologies.
The company said in early May that it is investing hundreds of millions of dollars in a new factory in Washington state by 2024. Sila, a company founded by a former Tesla engineer, has raised an additional $590 million last year, bringing its valuation to an estimated $3.3 billion.
Compared to the current generation G-Class, the G-Class EV has a design quite similar to the square design that has become the symbol of this car for the past 4 decades. The difference lies in the new one-piece grille, new design wheels and unique light clusters to set it apart from the regular G-Class.
In particular, the electric car model EQG (the name of the electric G-Class) will not be built on the EV platform, instead it will use the same trapezoidal chassis as the current G-Class. However, this frame will be upgraded to fit the 107.8 kWh lithium-ion battery pack shared from EQS, which gives a range of up to 770 km when fully charged.
