Mercedes-Maybach goes green with Vision 6 Cabriolet

on Aug19

The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet measures nearly 20 feet in length and features an extended, round “boat tail” rear meant to recall the look of a luxury yacht.

Mercedes-Benz is showing its view of an ultraluxe convertible of the future with its Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet unveiled Friday in Pebble Beach, Calif.

The Vision 6 Cabriolet is engineered and designed as an electric car with output of 750 hp and a range of more than 200 miles.

It is capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds, Mercedes says. A quick-charge feature allows for enough power to charge the car in five minutes to boost driving range by around 60 miles.

The cars don’t hint at a coming production model but instead showcase Mercedes’ latest design vision for the Maybach subbrand.

“The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet takes modern luxury into the realms of the ultimate in luxury, and is the perfect embodiment of our design strategy,” Gorden Wagener, chief design officer for Daimler AG, said in a statement. “Breathtaking proportions combined with a luxurious ‘haute couture’ interior help to create the ultimate experience.”

The concept measures nearly 20 feet in length and includes a superlong hood, flowing lines and an extended, round “boat tail” rear meant to recall the look of a luxury yacht.
