As expected, the gorgeous concept Vision 6 by Mercedes-Maybach is not just a design exercise but also a technological challenge featuring the latest technology: it will be powered by four electric motors located at each wheel for a total output of 750 horsepower!
After the appearance of photos that seemed “leaked” on the internet with the new concept of the Mercedes, nicknamed “6 meters of ultimate luxury”, the German manufacturer now returns with a new series of photographs accompanied by official information.
Mercedes- Maybach Vision 6 is scheduled to debut at the Concourse d’Elegance at Pebble Beach, one of the most important events of its kind.
Until then, let us revel on the sensual lines of the exterior design inspired by the German aero-coupe from early last century. The concept impresses primarily through its long and fluid hood, the plunged cabin with wasp like rear distinguished by the narrow horizontal taillights.
The retro-modern silhouette which gives us important information about what Mercedes is preparing in the coming years is completed by “Gullwing” doors, 24-inch wheels and front grille specific to the classic models of Maybach.
The interior of Vision 6 is futuristic, yet extremely luxurious, and it relies on a combination of wood, leather and many digital elements. The windshield turns into a giant head-up display that gives the driver all the necessary information and it is clear that the Germans from Mercedes imagined this concept as autonomous one, allowing the car to take control whenever the driver wants it.
Until recently, no one knew exactly what propels this symbol of luxury envisioned by Mercedes, but now we found out that it is set in motion by four electric motors placed in each wheel area, providing wheel drive and a total power of 750 horsepower.
The battery capacity of 90 kWh provides a range of over 500 kilometers and despite the small dimension, the car accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in less than 4 seconds.
Moreover, the machine has a loading capacity of 350 kW, which means that if it is loaded for 5 minutes at a gas station proper, Mercedes-Maybach Vision 6 can run 100 kilometers.
The question many are now asking is whether this concept will ever enter production. Well, it is still early to offer a response, but if someone with a lot of money can convince Mercedes, it is not impossible to see a version of the series in the coming years.
