Preceding the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, Daimler takes the covers off the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6, an electric luxury coupe that could herald a new chapter for the brand.
Mercedes-Maybach unveiled its Vision concept car ahead of the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
The concept is called the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6, the number designation standing for its length, at 6 meters long, or 18.5 feet.
Maybach used to be a luxury brand under Daimler, Mercedes-Benz's parent company, but was folded into Mercedes-Benz as Mercedes-Maybach.
The Mercedes-Benz tri-star sits above the Maybach name on the concept.
Mercedes-Maybach says the grille is inspired by a pinstripe suit.
LED headlights denote the car's modernity.
The concept gets all-wheel-drive from two electric motors, one driving each axle.
The gull-wing doors are a historical reference to Mercedes-Benz.
The cabin nestles to the rear of the car.
A boat tail back end hearkens to historical cars.
The split rear window is also a historical cue, although the horizontal layout gives them a modern twist.
This concept uses an electric drivetrain, making it a zero-emission vehicle.
An 80 kilowatt-hour battery pack is integrated with the chassis.
