"Together with Sila, the German automaker is planning to bring silicon anode chemistry tech to the EQG. Cleverly, the cutting-edge material is able to increase the energy density of batteries without jeopardizing performance or safety. Sila's creation boasts an energy density increase of 20-40% when compared to contemporary technology. This will enable Mercedes-Benz to significantly increase the driving range of future EVs."

Battery technology is moving so quickly.

I curious if the EQG will be built by Magna Steyr (The G-Class is currently built there).

These articles give more detail. Link and Link

"On Sunday, Mercedes-Benz unveiled its EQG prototype, an all-electric version of the automaker’s utilitarian off-road icon. Its combustion-engine forerunner is built in Graz, Austria, by Ontario, Canada-based Magna International Inc., and the subcontractor’s European boss dropped a hint at the Munich car show that the electric version will be built in Austria, too."

The new battery material will be shipped to Europe from Washington State.

Another win for Magna International
It’s becoming apparent that the Magna Steyr EV plant is fast evolving
to become the dominant NICHE EV manufacturer for 40,000-100,000
model production per year
