Images of new Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury SUV leaked online
Mercedes has planned to premiere its new Maybach-branded concept -- the new Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury SUV -- on April 25, 2018, at the Beijing Motor Show; but the images of the vehicle have already made their way to the World Wide Web. The concept to be unveiled by Mercedes will likely be a Maybach version of the next-gen GLS.
The official images of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury SUV have appeared on CarNewsChina, revealing that the SUV is more like a sedan with a higher roof and good ground clearance because of a jacked-up suspension.
The images also show that the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury SUV will have an interesting retro-style split window arrangement at the rear. Moreover, the vehicle’s rumoured “bold new grille” underscores a similar design with vertical slats on the refreshed Mercedes-Maybach S-Class and the extra-long Pullman version.
Meanwhile, according to recent Autocar magazine report, Mercedes’ soon-to-be-premiered Maybach-branded concept is a fully electric vehicle, which will draw power from four electric motors capable of delivering a massive 738 hp total output.
The report has also revealed that the new concept will use a huge 80-kWh battery pack which will be placed below the vehicle’s floor. The battery pack will give the vehicle a 310-mile (500 kilometers) range in the outgoing New European Driving Cycle (NEDC).
