Description

Mercedes-Maybach began in 1921 with Wilhelm and Karl Maybach building cars with the vision of “the very best of the very best”. Now 100 years later, #Maybach seeks to redefine this vision in the electric era, but surprisingly first with an all-electric SUV in this near production ready #conceptcar.

#MercedesMaybach say the electric drive train will make things even more luxurious and Maybach-like for the occupants. No firm figures on electric performance or range: but a vague mention of around 600KM. I would guess something similar to the EQS 580 in performance and charging.

Design is interesting, clearly EQ but clearly Maybach too. First the two tone paint with hand painted pin stripe: here in obsidian black and zircon red. Then the typical EQ black panel grille that wraps around into the bonnet and headlights. It has the vertical Maybach pinstripes that we’ve seen in every concept and production car, in a three-dimensional chrome-plated style but set inside the panel. The LED lights are “individual diamond blocks” with a mesh of the Maybach logo. And as usual you get the classic Maybach lettering on the front bonnet and the chrome line in the bonnet: but more interesting is the first EQ car with the Mercedes star.

The pronounced wheel arches are in high-gloss black, you have the typical “bowl” Maybach wheels, very well suited for aerodynamic efficiency. Side running board also in typical Maybach shape, and you’ll not the S Class style flush door handles too. Windows of course must have chrome, it’s a Maybach! Along with the logo on the C Pillar. But they also slapped a load of logos on the B Pillar, in an almost Louis Vuitton designer monogram style.

The rear is more EQ than Maybach, single bar light is slim like the Vision 6, lots of chrome used, and a surprisingly muscular quarter.

Interior looks close to production with the Hyperscreen from the EQS visible, but in a proper single screen, rather than the 3 joined screens in the production car. In the rear of the interior, it uses the familiar Executive seats and the Chauffeur Package as seen in Maybach and S Class. But it’s all exaggerated for the concept, with armrests designed like sideboards, trim elements in white piano lacquer and materials in deep-sea blue: Gorden Wagener’s obsession with yachts continues!
