According to rumors, the German automaker plans to revive the Mercedes-Benz R-class minivan. Only this time, the novelty will receive a fully electric power unit, the power of which can be over 1000 horsepower.

With the exception of China, Mercedes-Benz stopped selling the R-Class for one good reason: that model had rather low sales figures. Not only was the minivan not attractive enough to casual buyers, even with a more efficient version of the R63 with a hand-built 6.2-liter V8 producing 503 horsepower (630 Nm).

However, the premium brand has decided to revive the R-Class. This is what the foreign edition of Car Magazine says.

According to the British publication, Mercedes is returning the R-Class, but as an all-electric crossover, which will receive the Mercedes-AMG GLR designation. However, it has been indicated that the new product will become part of the all-electric Mercedes EQ family, which could mean it could go on sale with the EQR designation.

The novelty will receive a seven-seater cabin, a 105 kWh battery, and three powerful electric motors. Collectively, the power output will reach 1006 hp. (1350 Nm) – incredible numbers.

According to a report by Car Magazine, the all-electric Mercedes-AMG GLR or EQR is set to arrive by 2025.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that they demonstrated the new Mercedes-Maybach S-Class. The official presentation of the new luxury sedan Mercedes-Maybach S-Class took place.
