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.

amazon has partnered with music streaming service anghami

Amazon’s Prime subscription service offers an excellent value proposition because it includes not only free shipping but also access to a huge library of songs, among other things. Unfortunately for music lovers in the MENA region, the Amazon Prime music library includes mostly songs from English-speaking countries. But that’s about to change soon because Amazon has partnered with Anghami, the first legal music streaming platform and digital distribution company in the Arab world.

As a result of the new partnership, Prime subscribers in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates will automatically get a free six-month subscription to Anghami Plus, a premium subscription service that offers an unlimited access to Anghami’s large content catalog and unlocks extra features such as the ability to play songs offline, display lyrics, and enjoy music in high quality.

“This collaboration with Anghami is a perfect example of how we work together with leading local brands to innovate on members’ behalf, offering them the best experience possible,” said Ronaldo Mouchawar, Vice President of Amazon Middle East and North Africa. “We’re excited to see Prime members in both Saudi Arabia and the UAE enjoy Anghami Plus and all it has to offer, alongside other shopping, savings and entertainment benefits already included in their membership”.

The partnership with Amazon is guaranteed to help Anghami realize its global ambitions and compete with other music streaming services, most notably Spotify and Deezer.

Several months ago, Anghami entered into a merger agreement with publicly traded special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) Vistas Media Acquisition Company Inc. The goal is to list Anghami on the New York NASDAQ exchange, giving it access to global growth capital.

Currently, Anghami provides its users access to more than 57 million Arabic and international songs, as well as podcasts and live radio. Amazon Prime subscribers who decide to keep using Anghami can get an additional 50% discount for the next six months.
