Just like most other car manufacturers, Mercedes-Benz is electrifying its product range, and the equally iconic and polarizing G-Class won’t be an exception. At the 2021 IAA Mobility show in Munich, the German car manufacturer showed its Concept EQG, an electrified version of the original “G-Class” that, at least according to Mercedes-Benz, refuses to compromise when it comes to off-road capabilities.

“A cross-country vehicle which has remained true to itself for more than 40 years ventures a step into the future,” states Mercedes-Benz on the retro futuristic Concept EQG web page. “The Concept EQG combines its iconic origin and uncompromising off-road capabilities with futuristic elements of the Mercedes-EQ world.”

To promote the new car, Mercedes-Benz filmed an epic 70s space opera that explores the future of mobility, reminding us all that our present, with cars like the Concept EQG soon to be available for purchase, would like the future to people 50 years ago.

The Concept EQG has a striking two-tone paint job and an illuminated grille that reminds us of the Suzuki Jimny. Additional LED lights can be found on other sides of the vehicle as well, including an LED light bar at the front and a third brake light at the back.

Mercedes-Benz hasn’t released much technical information yet, but we know that the Concept EQG has four electric motors mounted close to the wheels. The motors are mated to a shiftable two-speed gearbox, whose goal is to ensure that the car has enough off-roading capabilities to overcome even the trickiest obstacles.

Since the current version of the electric G-Class is nearly ready for production, it’s unlikely to change dramatically before it rolls off the production line for the first time. Unfortunately, we don’t know when that will be, so we all have to patiently wait and hope it won’t be too far in the future.

In a world first, Lebanon’s AnNahar Newspaper has built an artificial intelligence model designed to carry out presidential duties for the politically troubled country. Lebanon has been without a sitting president for two years after thirteen failed attempts by the nation’s parliament to elect a suitable candidate.

The new AI President’s deep learning algorithm was fed over 90 years of impartial journalism from AnNahar’s archive stretching back to the 1930s. The AI leader analyzes not only historical data but also current events and is able to formulate solutions for all manner of political, legal, and governmental questions. By tapping into such a vast knowledge base, Lebanon’s AI President will have a deep understanding of the country’s past, as well as an unbiased take on the challenges the nation faces going forward.

The new AI President was unveiled in a recent live broadcast. Nayla Tueni, editor-in-chief of AnNahar Newspaper conducted an interview with the digital leader, asking relevant questions about the current state of Lebanon, and how to fix the country’s difficult political situation. AnNahar has also converted its print newspaper to focus entirely on the new president’s guidance on issues spanning everything from the economy to sustainability and the environment.

After the interview, Nayla Tueni commented: “As Lebanese people, and especially at AnNahar, we refuse to sit back and allow things to go on as they have. To not have a president for this long is unacceptable and has impacted the country negatively. If the parliament will not do its job to elect a president, then the people will bring to Lebanon a president”.

The AI President will soon be accessible to everyone at OurPresident.ai, Users will be able to ask questions in a similar manner to the likes of ChatGPT and Google Gemini. It is also understood that government officials will also use the tool to help devise new directives.
