One of the toughest and most iconic 4X4 vehicles on the market, the Mercedes-Benz G Class, has an electric future, Daimler CEO Ola Källenius has confirmed.

Daimler's Digital Transformation Chief, Sascha Pallenberg, shared the boss' quote in the tweet below.

“By 2022, we will be bringing more than ten different all-electric vehicles to market," Källenius also stated. This will be by way of Mercedes-Benz’s EQ subbranch, which has already been allocated a massive €10 billion (AU$16 billion) to make this 2022 target a reality.

The only electric G-Class currently in existence is owned by none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger, although it isn't an official Mercedes-Benz creation and rather one converted by Austrian company Kreisel Electric.
