Arnold and the Unimog U-1300

California’s former chief executive Arnold Schwarzenegger, who signed into law an entire slate of strict emissions rules, recently purchased a Mercedes-Benz diesel Unimog U-1300. Schwarzenegger was instrumental in popularizing large cars when he acquired a fleet of Hummers before becoming Governor. Later, he downsized his personal fleet in order to reduce emissions, converting his only remaining Hummer to hybrid-drive. The star owns two other Mercedes-Benz models, an SL-Class convertible and an Excalibur.
German firm Mertec modified Schwarzenegger’s new Unimog to comply with California’s emissions laws. The Unimog is sold worldwide, primarily to military organizations, construction companies, and firefighting units.
