Mercedes-Benz working on all-electric G-Class: Report

Mercedes-Benz is working on an all-electric G-Class wagon, claims a media report quoting Ola Kallenius, Chairman of Daimler and heads of Mercedes-Benz.

Rolling out the G-Class Ev will transform one of the biggest gas guzzlers of the band into a zero-emissions vehicle.

As the media report claims, there were initial discussions regarding shelving the iconic model from the lineup. However, later, the company decided to electrify the SUV.

Commenting on the strategy of the brand regarding the electric vehicles, Ola Kallenius, said, "All systems are go. We are investing more than ten billion euros in the development of our EQ vehicle portfolio alone. By 2022 we will be bringing more than ten different all-electric vehicles to market."

He also said, "We will also be electrifying the entire Mercedes‑Benz portfolio, and our customers will thus have the choice of at least one electric alternative in every Mercedes‑Benz model series, taking the total to 50 overall.”
