The slender low-rider, almost 19-feet in length, could be cruising along the streets in the future, reaching 62 mph in under 4 seconds.
This new high-tech electric car is not only autonomous, but stores an 80-kilowatt-hour battery pack. It has 738 horsepower and can reach a maximum speed of 155 mph. According to the U.S. EPA standards, the car can reach a range of over 200 miles before needing a recharge.
A Mercedes fantasy, the car is a prospect that excites the future of electric vehicles.
The Vision Mercedes was seen in California this past Thursday and was then showcased again at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance car show.
The Maybach 6 is a revival of old-fashioned elitist vehicles, with its classic mold and leather interior, rejuvenated by new technology.
Mercedes speaks of its “technoid” interior; a windshield that also functions as a transparent display of driving data and navigation materials.
Another thrilling feature of the Maybach model is the transparent center tunnel connecting the front of the vehicle that mimics electricity. The vehicle operator will witness the visual personification of electricity speed up according to the corresponding pressure placed on the gas petal.
The Daimler AG head of design Gorden Wagener commented on the Maybach at the Pebble Beach Resort, “We see a big movement in analog things, and they are sustainable. … This is something you pass to your children, like a Leica camera or a chronograph watch. Driving has been a pleasure since 130 years and will stay that way another 130 years.”
