    Mercedes Maybach Vision Ultimate Luxury EV

    I am not the biggest fan of Mercedes styling at the best of times but this concept hits a new low for me by crossing an SUV with a saloon/sedan. It also shows how Chinese tastes are strongly influencing European designs now and how important SUV's are to younger Chinese buyers. In spite of the article saying it is unlikely to reach production I'm sure it could if they determine there is sufficient demand for it in China.

    Ugly. This makes the Bentayga look like a super model...


    Re: Mercedes Maybach Vision Ultimate Luxury EV

    Holy shit is that ugly. Looks like some shit Asian car design from 30-40 years ago.

    Why the hell would they chop the hatch off and make it a trunk? This has to be one of the biggest design failures I've seen in a long time.

    Appalling

    Loss for words.

    Nothing on the exterior looks like a Mercedes. other than the 'trunk' that has some C-class sedan feel.

    It is a joke right?  I’m a little teapot delivery wagon... I can’t stop laughing 😝 


    Re: Mercedes Maybach Vision Ultimate Luxury EV

    While not my cup of tea, I think a sedan form makes more sense than a van form for this class of vehicle. Its never going to the builder's supply store so the loss of hatch area doesn't matter and the enclosed trunk shields the occupants from luggage and provides for a quieter cabin.


    Re: Mercedes Maybach Vision Ultimate Luxury EV

    it would sell mega in china,heck it will sell over here too, but just chinese will buy it

    By the looks of the photographs, you have a choice for your cup of tea.  Smiley 14    I guess I'm old enough to recall when ultimate luxury was having powered windows versus manual cranks and I never recall a concept as ungainly as this one.  If this was a hyper researched concept for the market in China, those researchers should be fired.

    looks like the pic has been squashed from the end .. a sort of parody of a tonka toy


    Re: Mercedes Maybach Vision Ultimate Luxury EV

    WTF !!!!!


    Re: Mercedes Maybach Vision Ultimate Luxury EV

    They are apparently looking to do a Maybach version of the G-Wagon as well.

    Probably looks like this.


    Re: Mercedes Maybach Vision Ultimate Luxury EV

    A new low point for automotive silhouettes...

     


    Re: Mercedes Maybach Vision Ultimate Luxury EV

    I think Jay-Z and Drake already have deposits on this.

    Isn't there already one? the Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet


    Re: Mercedes Maybach Vision Ultimate Luxury EV

    they can’t be serious. this is about as bad a prototype design as i have ever seen. looks like a function of some committee design process like the japanese used to do (and not successfully)...


    Re: Mercedes Maybach Vision Ultimate Luxury EV

    What has been seen cannot be unseen.

    My eyes still hurt......


    Re: Mercedes Maybach Vision Ultimate Luxury EV

    for luxury section, My bottom choice was toyota century,I think this merc got that spot


    Re: Mercedes Maybach Vision Ultimate Luxury EV

    I guess Mercedes designers saw the Bentayga and thought they could get away with a similar design.   indecision
