Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6: electric car’s revolution is coming with this luxury coupé
Mercedes just revealed new Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6, an ultra-luxurious electric coupé with amazing proportions that pays homage to ancient aero coupés. A complete reinterpretation of the brand’s classic with a new look.
New design, more technical and sensual
Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 answers to Mercedes designer’s new desires to create supercar oriented to the future and unreasonably elegant. This 2+2 version comes unexpectedly and brings us directly to the future.
The first thing we notice on Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 is its long shape that represents almost six-meters in length, with a really long bonnet and a very low roofline. Its wings are ergonomic and its muscular look extends on the car’s sides.
In terms of colours, we like its new Maybach red bodypaint, enhanced by the different chromed element located above the wheel arches, and in the centre of the bonnet. The new front grille accentuates the slender silhouette of the supercar and the gullwing doors confirm its sport character. Then, at the rear, the “boat tail” shape was created alike the greatest luxury yachts in the world.
Interior: tradition and technologies
Mercedes hasn’t forgotten its glorious past while designing Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6’s cockpit, event if the brand has added some new technologies. First the dashboard that is absolutely unique extends to the door trim into the seat landscape for a new 360° vision.
Then Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 has a unique and delicate design using first choice materials and colours such as pink gold to the ultra-luxury side. There are also high-quality leather trims that brings to the seats a Chesterfield effect, while the dashboard keeps the German brand’s typical wood inserts. On the floor, you can notice elm wood, frequently used in luxury yachts too.
Little plus, there is a huge space at the front of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 to easily stock picnic accessories, personal items and even the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 suitcase set exclusively created for the vehicle.
One step ahead to the future
Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 is resolutely innovative, both with the use of new technologies or with the choice of its electric motors. The supercar appears to be extremely intelligent and intuitive thanks t new “hyperanalogue” elements.
For example, information about Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6’s seats appears on a front analogue strip inside the cockpit, as well as navigation information. You also have access to all interior commands thanks to a simple button located on the front display with simple gestures.
Then the seats commands have been replaced by by miniature “body sensor display” in the new upholstery and allow the car to detect passengers posture and vital functions, so it can adapt their position, activate the massage and climate function for all user’s comfort. Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 is also able to adapt the light inside the car depending on the weather, passengers’ clothing and even ambient temperature.
Finally, Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 is equipped with four compact electric motors that represent almost 750hp and achieve a top-speed of 250km/h, as well as a 0 to 100km/h in less than four seconds as every powerful sport cars. The car also has an impressive charging capacity that can reach 500km and recharge in only 5 minutes for 100 km additional range.
Such impressive characteristics for this truly innovative and authentic supercar.
