Images Of The Luxury Mercedes-Maybach SUV Appeared Before Its Premiere
Images and details of the newest concept of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury SUV have leaked to the Internet on the eve of its official premiere at the Auto Show in Beijing next week.
The car, which the premium group of Mercedes describes as a “SUV-salon” is designed, judging by the place of the debut, primarily for the rich Chinese buyers.
The Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury will compete with such crossovers as the Bentley Bentayga and the Rolls-Royce Cullinan.
The concept is designed as an electric car with four synchronous engines with a total power of 738 hp. The power reserve is expected near 500 km.
Although the crossover is developed for the Chinese market, the design elements will be likely included in the western models of Maybach. Currently, the only model sold by Mercedes-Maybach around the world is the S-Class.
A senior Mercedes spokesman in an interview with the Autocar said earlier that the company was very surprised by the success of the sales of the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, which proved extremely popular in many key markets.
Now the premium group’s plan is to extend exclusivity around the Maybach name at the very top of the SUV segment.
