Here it is! The most amazing car we will see this year. It is called the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6. It measures 222 inches in length, it is a coupe and it is an all electric car. If we are to compare it with anything than the Rolls-Royce Wraith is the closest thing on the streets. However, the Rolls-Royce Vision Next 100 could also present some kind of competition to it.
Mercedes-Maybach wanted to reimagine the entire concept of a luxury coupe and here are the results. It measures just above 52 inches in height, features styling cues from cars from the 1930s and has the real Maybach Exelero vibe to it. These are all good things, but the most impressive part of this vehicle are not its Gullwing doors or sublime styling. It is the fact that it’s actually an electric car. No V12 here. Four electric engines sit behind the 24-inch wheels and feed each wheel independently. They provide the power of 750hp, four-wheel drive and are feed from 80 kWh batteries located in the floor of the car. Allegedly, the thing has a range of 200 miles according to US EPA measuring standards.
The inside is another place where Mercedes-Maybach designers and engineers really excelled. Gullwing doors reveal awesome sofa-like seats with integrated massagers and systems that recognize the state of the passenger. The car will, more or less, know when one is tired, needs a massage and start the massagers automatically. Furthermore, the windshield is actually a large see-through screen. Augmented reality is on a whole another level here. We guess passengers and drivers will be able to control it with gestures. The technology already exists.
As for the performance all we know is that the car will reach 62 mph in less than 3 seconds. This is amazing considering the size of the thing. No one knows will it ever reach the production status.
