According to Mercedes-Benz, the body of the four-wheel drive G-Code has been painted with a special paint, that acts as a solar cell to produce electricity. Indeed, under sunlight it regenerates electrostatic energy when the air causes friction on the body surface as it moves.

It also features a “hybrid active” suspension which uses the power generated during quenching of the shock absorbers and springs, this power goes to a generator and it is converted to electricity.
