Hydrogen-Powered Mercedes-Benz Unimog Undergoes Testing

Mercedes-Benz subsidiary Daimler Truck is currently testing a Unimog prototype that comes with a hybrid engine combining diesel and hydrogen combustion.

Stash of Custom Mercedes-Benz Unimog Trucks Discovered in Colorado

The Unimog is a special kind of truck though because it is not just for delivering payload. It can be used as an alternative to the standard pickup truck like what Arnold Schwarzenegger did. The vehicle’s highly-customizable architecture makes it such a darling to tuners too as we have seen it transformed into all kinds of… Continue Reading »
