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.

At present, the imported Mercedes-Benz V-Class has no competition in the country but it will compete with the upcoming Toyota Vellfire MPV.

Mercedes-Benz is poised to give its iconic G-Class the plug within the next few years as part of its move to roll-out 22 all-electric models by 2022.

The game also offers the deepest customisation the series has ever seen, including a range of options for both performance and style.

"The way I see things now, I'd say the last Mercedes to be built will be a G-Class", is how the head honcho's words end, and we can't say we're surprised. While the model is visually totally distinct from all other Mercedes-Benz models, it remains one of the iconic emblems of the brand, as much as the SL roadster is, for example. The SUV's substantial size and boxy design will require a massive battery pack to ensure the SUV has a usable amount of range.

We can, however, expect that the future EV will take the name EQG, if the company sticks to its current naming protocol for its electrified vehicles.

If anything, a plug-in hybrid G-Class or one with a mild-hybrid system is more likely to be introduced before Mercedes goes all-in with an electric. Australian tuner Kreisel Electric has already fitted the model with a single 480-hp (360-kW) electric motor once. The G-Class could benefit from an electrified powertrain, as the most efficient SUV is rated at up to 14 mpg combined.
