Article from Autocar:<br>Mercedes has dropped a huge hint that a hybrid version of the new M-class 4x4 is close to production. One of its Detroit displays was this near-production 4x4 transmission (right), which incorporates twin electric motors.<p>Autocar talked to a Mercedes engineer who confirmed that the system was undergoing final calibration tests to make the transition between petrol and electric power as smooth as possible.<p>Its likely to be seen first on the new M-class, which has been engineered with enough space under the boot floor to take a substantial battery. The system is based around Mercs seven-speed 7G automatic transmission. Sandwiched between the box and the engine are a pair of electric motors. The motors develop just 34bhp each, but 141lb ft and 221lb ft of torque respectively.<p>The system would allow the M-class to run as a conventional petrol or diesel (though the turning of the engine will allow the motors to act as alternators and recharge the batteries). In zero-emissions mode most useful in cities the electric motors could easily provide enough torque to power the car from traffic light to traffic light with impressive performance.<br>Source: Autocar <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

It looks the same, i'm just guessing it's a different trim line

The MLX is much bigger than the ML. 7 Seats. The G-Class was called the MLX.

The MLX is the Long-Wheelbase version of the M-Class.<p>It maybe a derivative of the new G-Class replacement, but I doubt it. I would guess that it is just a rival for Land Rover Discovery 7-Seater.
