After the G63 6×6, G500 4×4² and the Landaulet G650, it is time for Mercedes to change the letter to E for a new crazy project.
Although it was revealed more than a week ago, the E-Class All-Terrain 4×4² still looks like a very cool rendering made by a Mercedes enthusiast with solid skills from Photoshop. But the rugged wagon is real as it should be and we must thank the development engineer E-Class Jürgen Eberle for it to happen. The antidote SUV that we like to call it actually has an impact in life because a small batch of production is seriously considered in the business.
The revelation was made by Eberle in an interview with the Australian magazine Motoring on his impressive pet project. The Mercedes qualified engineer added that he had a patent to combine a portal axle with a multi-link axle because the All-Terrain 4×4² continues to have the multi-link suspension of the E-Class but with the tracks of Wheels and solid ground The permission you see in a G class.
The complex transformation process was not a one man’s job, as Eberle was helped by some of his colleagues and actually received funds from the management team for this to happen. Approximately 24 people from all departments of Mercedes have joined forces to create the E-Class All-Terrain 4×4². Eberle revealed in the same interview that it is technically possible to put the off-road wagon into production following very positive reactions from representatives of companies from several countries.
All that remains is to convince the boss of Eberle to give his stamp of approval. The man behind the unique vehicle with serious off-road professional qualifications is confident that the specialty model will be illuminated for production. Needless to say it would prove significantly more affordable than the G-Wagens trio hardcore introduced recently: G63 6×6, G500 4×4² and G650 Landaulet.
With a ground clearance of nearly 200 millimeters (7.8 inches), extremely wide trails and G-Class equipment, the E-Class All-Terrain 4×4² would be a rough car to govern them all.
