MBRDNA Debuts New Concept Car Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6September 27, 2016
The Carlsbad Advanced Exterior Design team recently released the latest in a long list of exciting Mercedes-Benz concept cars. The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 was presented at the Pebble Beach Concourse d’ Elegance this month and has received rave reviews. The 2+2‑seater is an homage to the glorious age of the aero coupés, and consciously carries this tradition forward into the future. The coupé reinterprets classic, emotional design principles in an extreme way, following the Mercedes design philosophy of sensual purity. The ‘six’ describes the overall length of the car at nearly 6 meters (5.7m).
The car features 24-inch wheels and utilizes high-tech materials to create a 3D effect that is extremely dynamic, as well as elegant. Thanks to its four compact permanent magnet synchronous electric motors, it features all-wheel drive. The output of the drive system is 550 kW (750 hp). The shallow underfloor battery has a usable capacity of approximately 80 kWh. This not only allows performance characteristics typical of a sports car (acceleration from 0‑100 km/h in under four seconds, top speed electronically governed at 250 km/h), but also a range of over 500 kilometers according to the NEDC (over 200 miles according to EPA).
