The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is one of the company’s least eco-friendly models to date and going electric could do wonders for its environmental profile.

This week, Daimler’s digital transformation head Sascha Pallenberg relayed via Twitter that the head of Mercedes-Benz Cars, speaking at an automobile event in Berlin, revealed that an all-electric version of the G-Class wagon is in the works. On the same day that Volkswagen outlined its plans to launch an all-electric wagon in 2021, Daimler’s head of Mercedes-Benz Ola Källenius announced that “there will be a zero-emission EV version of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class” wagon, too. The G-Class has been in production since the late 1970s and has since retained its place in the company’s portfolio as one of the least eco-friendly models to date. Switching its current powertrain out for an electric one would do wonders for its environmental profile.
#Daimler CEO Källenius: ”There will be a zero-emission #EV version of the #MercedesBenz G-Class. In the past there were discussions whether we should eliminate the model, the way I see things now I'd say the last Mercedes to be built will be a G-Class" #AMWKongress #eMobility pic.twitter.com/tAS6tzpR3Y
