This year’s twenty thousandth Mercedes-Benz G-Class

6 December 2016

A white Mercedes-AMG G63 is the twenty thousandth Mercedes-Benz G-Class to leave the Magna Steyr production line in Graz, Austria. This is the first time that this volume has been achieved in one year.


“The production of 20 000 G-Classes in one year confirms the high demand for the ‘G’ and likewise the quality of our vehicles, something that is highly appreciated by our customers,” says  Dr. Gunnar Güthenke, head of the off-road product group at Mercedes-Benz.

The G-Class that rolled off  the production line this year offers various customisation options, referred to as “designo manufaktur” that can be added at the hand-finishing section, also in Graz. Customers can opt for things such as manually applied  paintwork on the exterior and on the interior top-stitching or model badge, crafted by hand.

More than a quarter of a million G-Class vehicles have been sold since the first model’s inception. The  G-Class has been in production on behalf of Mercedes-Benz at Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria since 1979.
