At this year’s gathering at Pebble Beach in California, Mercedes-Maybach showcased its most luxurious two-seater concept in the form of Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet. The car does pay homage to the famous "automotive haute couture" of hand-finished cabriolets. The new concept is a combination of both modern and classic car designs. The car is powered by an electric motor that claims a driving range of over 500 kilometers.
Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet concept almost measures six meters in length, to be precise it measures 5700 mm in length, 2100 mm in width and 1430 mm in height. The car has lived up to the visionary design concepts ever showcased by the company including the Vision EnerG‑Force (Los Angeles, November 2012), AMG Vision Gran Turismo (Sunnyvale, 2013), Vision Tokyo (Tokyo 2015) and Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Coupé (Pebble Beach 2016)
The flowing interior design idiom brings luxury element on the outside exterior and inside at par. The formal flow of the areas from the rear into the interior gives rise to a typical yacht feeling. A light wing flows in a curve across the door trim and the centre tunnel into the seat landscape, creating a 360° open-air luxury lounge.
Mercedes-Benz was very clear to make this concept vehicle as an electric car. The electric motor on the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 concept has an output of 550 kW that allows a driving range of over 500 kilometers. Additionally, quick charging option is available that has the potential charging capacity of up to 350 kW. Mercedes-Maybach claims that in just five minutes enough power can be charged to achieve an additional range of around 100 kilometres.
The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet is designed to anticipate the needs of its passengers and to provide the required information and solutions in real time. The user experience also combines ultimate luxury with intelligence. In addition to the touch-only control and intelligent navigation linked to the appointment calendar, another example is the Concierge function, it is possible to talk to the concierge like talking to a friend, i.e. freely, without using predefined voice commands. This enables full concentration of the tasks of driving.
