Mercedes-Benz might have just unveiled this year’s most stunning car at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance with the debut of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet. The stunning Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet pays homage to custom built cabriolets from the past, but also looks to the future with its fully electric powertrain.
The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet is almost 20 feet long as it incorporates the classic proportions of art deco design with its long hood and simple flowing lines. At the front, the grille was inspired by a pinstriped suit, while the extended, round “boat tail” format of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet’s rear recalls a luxury yacht.
Inside the yacht theme continues with a flowing design. The trim elements are featured in rose gold, just like the center lock on the large 24-inch wheels and the seats are covered in a quilted crystal white nappa leather finish. The open-pore wood floor with inlaid aluminum continues the yacht theme, plus a floating, transparent center tunnel visualizes the drive system’s electrical energy flow for the passengers with blue fiber optics.
The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 is powered by four compact permanent magnet synchronous electric motors, giving it all-wheel drive. A flat battery sits in the underbody and the four electric motors generate a total 750 hp. It speeds effortlessly from 0-60 mph in under four seconds and has an electronically-limited top speed of 155 mph. Even with its large size, the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 a range of over 200 miles.
Recharging the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 is easy with DC charging that allows a charging capacity of up to 350 kW. In just five minutes enough power can be charged to achieve an additional range of over 60 miles.
