Mercedes-Benz is taking its iconic heritage G-Class range into a new era, introducing a new electronic-powered, zero-emission G-Class vehicle.

The news was confirmed yesterday by Daimler CEO Ola Källenius in a quote obtained and shared on Twitter by the company's digital transformation chief, Sascha Pallenberg. Read the tweet below.

Per Carscoops' report, the new model will be part of Mercedes-Benz's EQ line and assumedly part of the $11 billion the brand is investing in its EQ portfolio.

At present, there is one battery-powered Mercedes-Benz G-Class in existence and it's owned by no other than Arnold Schwarzenegger. It's not an official version, however, but one converted by Austrian company Kreisel Electric.

Schwarzenegger's whip may give us an idea of the kind of specs we could expect in the electric G-Wagen. Apparently his boasts an 483hp/360 kW electric motor, can do 0-62mph in 5.6 seconds, and tops out at 114mph. It has an 80 kWh battery pack supporting 150kW fast-charge and over 190 mile range.

Official details to follow.
