Luxury Daimler electric dream

The hood is endless, the doors float up to the top, the Interior is pure luxury: the study “Vision Mercedes Maybach 6”, Daimler has a dream in red created. A six-metre luxury-tribute to the Aero Coupe, replete with noble materials and the finest technology classical, electric and digital. We imagine this dream car.

Pure luxury on four wheels is red, 5.70 m long and has 750 horsepower. That’s at least clear since the “Monterey car week”, came to an end at the weekend in California. Where Daimler presented the vision Mercedes Maybach 6: so far, the dream car is just a study, but to see, touch and marvel at and especially equipped with the finest thing in their workshops and developer labs.

Gull-wing doors as an eye catcher

The elegant metallic shimmering dream “Red Maybach”, decorated with chrome and equipped with oversize 24-inch wheels, catches the eye not least because of its shape, which is a tribute to the glorious time of the Aero Coupe according to Daimler. The cockpit is offset to the rear and runs out gently to the rear out, which further emphasizes the bonnet with the impressive radiator grille.

The roof of the extra long twoseater is not just high with its 1.33 m. But don’t worry: At a width of 2.10 m place inmates find due to the extremely low-profile mounts for the retrograde cameras, which take the place of side mirrors enough on the bright leather chairs inside, where they will go after opening the doors an another eye-catcher of the luxury sports car.

With electric 750 HP, 0 to 100 in less than 4 seconds

Who takes a look under the hood, is look at first not much, at least in terms of volume. The very compact engine allows room for luggage in the case of the study a matching luggage set and picnic facilities.

This should however not lead to underestimate the power of the car: the vision Mercedes Maybach 6 is the metal become proof that luxury is not at all contrary to progress.

The car if this profane term is allowed not only has a 750 HP electric motor, which speeds up less than four seconds to 100 km/h: Thanks be to all-wheel drive with four compact permanent magnet synchronous electric motors. This could go on forever there would be not the electronically closed top speed, which puts an end to speed up to 250 km/h.

500 km range and quick charge

After all, one must not often staying with reload, and if, then not very long: the battery a capacity of about 80 kWh are produced which should allow a range of about 500 km. The charging time is enough just for a good cup of coffee: when loading performance of 350 kW, achieved by DC loading based on the CCS standard, the luxury carriage must be just time around half-an-hour on the network to by “empty” to “very”to fully reach by induction, at public charging stations or in the garage at the standard socket.

And the electric force not only during acceleration feel, you can also see while driving. The transparent floating central tunnel between the seats visualized the electric energy flow of the drive.

Futuristic interior with glass, leather and wood

Else is visible in the Interior that Mercedes Maybach is ready for the digital age: the cockpit is equipped with finest future gadgets. The front glass not only protects from the elements, but serves as a transparent screen that displays vehicle-related data and information about the environment. It’s customizable by gestures of the occupants.

Also, lots of details including the leather seats in the so-called Chesterfield-look are embedded in a digital display band in the surrounding glass decorative part. They have about “body sensor displays”: mini sensors with tiny display area, which monitor the vital signs of the passengers and enable if necessary for example the seat heater or the massage function. Even the clothes the inmates, temperature and light are checked, to adapt the lighting scene inside.

The fun is included

It stands in contrast to the almost old-fashioned, but even more significant-acting analogue display behind crystals shimmering covers in the dashboard and the steering wheel in White leather. The rest of the Interior is hand-tight luxuriously decorated in classic materials such as leather, metal and wood: Rosé gold, white and bright Elm wood create a very own elegant colour world. Last but not least this Mercedes Maybach makes it clear that it is all future technology is still a car driving fun included.

Similarly impressive like the Mercedes Maybach, already the research car was F 015, 2015 has seen Daimler CES electronics fair. The drive could even autonomously and in the Interior has to offer a lot more R 015.
