Mercedes-Benz showcased a 360 tank-turning prototype of its electric G-class, called EQG, at CES last month, with a number of the vehicles pirouetting on the Las Vegas strip.

Plans for an electric G-class were first revealed in 2021, with the ability to rotate within its footprint via four electric motors, dubbed G-turn, unveiled in 2023.

Electric vehicle manufacturer, Rivian, also included a 360 spin ability in their prototype off-roader in 2019, but it never made it to the production vehicle.

The official launch of the EQG slated for late 2024, with sales commencing in 2025, according to Car and Driver website.
