To mark the opening of its new Beijing R&D center, Mercedes-Benz unveiled a G-Code concept, a small crossover that’s literally covered in the latest green technology.

The egg-shaped G-Code is smaller than the recently-introduced GLA-Class and fits into the burgeoning subcompact crossover segment populated by the Buick Encore, Nissan Juke, and others. However, it’s main purpose isn’t to preview a future production model.

The G-Code was built to show off Mercedes’ most advanced styling and technology in what has become the world’s largest new-car market. It’s got a few gadgets Chinese buyers won’t find in a new C-Class.

That includes the powertrain, which consists of a hydrogen-powered internal-combustion engine (no fuel cells here) powering the front axle, and an electric motor powering the rear axle.
