Overhauled G category stays inside a box
DETROIT — Arnold Schwarzenegger put Daimler AG CEO Dieter Zetsche on a mark Sunday night: Would a princely Mercedes-Benz G category — a large SUV that is positively no sipper of gasoline — embankment hoary fuels and eventually go electric?
Zetsche answered by referencing a automaker’s oath final year that it would eventually electrify a whole lineup.
“That clearly says, ‘Stay tuned,'” Zetsche told a film star. “We pronounced a whole portfolio.”
Zetsche brought Schwarzenegger out on a theatre only after introducing a redesigned 2019 G category during a ebbing Michigan Theater in downtown Detroit. After Zetsche quickly interviewed a actor about his adore for a G class, Schwarzenegger incited a tables with his electric question.
Ola Kaellenius, Daimler’s house member in assign of rd, declined to strew some-more light on when a intensity electric G category could arrive.
Zetsche “said a full range, didn’t he?” Kaellenius said. “I would say, ‘Watch this space.'”
With a automaker only now giving a G category a many consummate redesign given a princely off-roader was launched scarcely 40 years ago, a entirely electric chronicle substantially wouldn’t occur for utterly a while. More expected would be a various that is hybridized in some manner.
