Mercedes-Benz looks prone to challenge Range Rover and Bentley with an extravagant SUV discharged under the Maybach brand. The German Goliath told columnists at the unveiling of the new Mercedes-Maybach S600 sedan that it came up with such a model following demands in developing markets.
Martin Hulder, venture chief for the S-Class vehicle, says the full-sized Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, soon to be rebranded GLS, is a perfect contender for the Maybach management. He pointed out that SUV are highly sought for in at Russia, the Middle East and China.
Hulder believes now may be perfect time to present an ultra-luxury SUV, as purchasers look at soon-to-be released items like, for example, the Bentley Bentayga and Lamborghini’s Urus. He also noted that the auto producers have clearly proved that SUVs could be associated with super luxury.
The official added that quite a few people have inquired whether Mercedes-Maybach is restricted to the S-Class. He answered that despite the fact that the company could extend the Mercedes-Maybach to different autos the move it’s not yet in their plans, though the car manufacturer ponders the option.
Mercedes has limited its branding strategies so that superior and selective extravagant labels now have their own branches in Mercedes-AMG and Mercedes-Maybach, rather than the customary Mercedes-Benz mark. Like AMG, the Maybach brand may also mark other models to represent to the most sumptuous variation of every auto, instead of the most powerful.
Hulder said that it is hypothetically conceivable to do that remarking that the car producer already uses the Mercedes-AMG in the majority of the other auto lines. However, he acknowledged that Mercedes-Maybach may have more limitations than Mercedes-AMG.
With Mercedes discharging the details and costs of their S600 Maybach, car experts also wonder if Cadillac could also come up with a sensible alternative to the $190,000 luxury car.
It is already known that Cadillac president Johan de Nysschen has imagined such an auto for the Cadillac brand. He told Automotive News before the end of last year the brand could offer ultra-extravagance autos that retail for $250,000 but only around 2029. As the long-term auto executive clarified the brand has other glaring crevices in its portfolio which must be tended to in the first place like a sub-compact luxury auto and a new series of hybrids and SUVs.
At the point when a six-figure Cadillac lead does pop up, it must have some features of the Maybach S600. These incorporate a very long wheelbase, a two-seat back format with hassocks and plane style collapsing tables, real wood trim, Napa leather and back seat entertainment. It would likewise require a powertrain which warrants a $250,000 sticker, same as the Maybach’s 523 torque, 612 lb-ft 6.0 liter twin-turbo V12.
