    Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury SUV Leaks Out

      That's not a Buick....

    Mercedes-Benz has been teasing for the past few weeks their showing at Auto China which is expected to be an SUV. But thanks to someone accidentally posting photos on the official Mercedes-Benz website, we have gotten our first look at the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury concept - quite the mouthful.

    The design... the less said about it, the better. It's a sedan with a tall ride height - think Volvo S60 Cross Country or Subaru Outback sedan. The front features the tall, vertical slat grille seen on the facelifted Mercedes-Maybach S-Class. The rear end styling is similar to the S-Class coupe with small taillights and angled trunk lid. The interior picture reveals seating for four, blue accent lighting, and a Maybach-branded tea set for rear passengers.

    The powertrain is comprised of four electric motors delivering a total 738 horsepower, and an 80-kWh lithium-ion battery pack that provides an estimated range of 310 miles.

    I am on board with the front half of this but I have no idea why an s-class coupe trunk is on an SUV.  Mercedes needs to pass on this body style.  However, if they built this, at least 5 other car makers will build an SUV with a trunk to copy this.

    This...deserves a frowny face.  Nothing this hideous will make ANY automaker copy it. Not even the Chinese or the Koreans...

    Well...we've seen this styling before...

    From Mercedes...

    Related image

     

    And we all know the PT Cruiser was throwback styling to these...

    Yes! American cars from the mid to late 1930s just before America entered WW2 and the US automakers shut down automobile production...

    This a Buick. 1938.

    With running boards for a SUV look.

    These are high off the ground. They actually DO have a trunk. They got today's high beltline styling. They look aerodynamic...

    Ive actually said this before...if we are gonna go down the SUV craze for a tad longer...I want my  SUV to look like this.

    Now...take that monstrosity rendering from Mercedes.

    Which one would YOU like to be seen in?

    Id take the 1938 Buick Special please!!!

    The design is more coherent. More fluid. More elegant...and dare I say it?  MORE MODERN!!!!  Even with those fenders and the upright windshield!!! 

    So...like I said, NOBODY would be copying that M-B. Its UGLY!

    If anything...automakers would be looking to Harley Earl's designs from 80 years ago for inspiration...

    Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury

    Its just a rendering though, so all this negative talk over the Mercedes is for nothing. 

    All that I wanted to say is that what is old is new again...

    An Escalade w a trunk would outsell all other Cadillac sedans I bet.   

    If only they would build something like that....

    I don't think they will build this, but I did get a 1930s vibe from it when I first saw it.   They are going to do a Maybach trim of the GLS.  If they do a standalone Maybach model, no way will it look like this.

    Hey some sugar daddy or momma probably can’t even bother to look poor by lifting their arms to press the auto lift gate so Mercedes engineered the solution to be a trunk for an SUV.

    Thinking outside the trunk - if every car with a lift gate can get the auto down feature, even some cheap Chevy or Toyota, innovate by getting rid of the lift gate! 

    The luxury of not looking like or using yours as any other utility on the market!

      Hyundai teased an image of its『45』Concept today ahead of the Frankfort International Motor Show. The car will be a fully electric vehicle and will be a symbolic milestone for Hyundai's future EV design.
      The concept looks back to the brand's first model in the 1970s for inspiration and is visibly angular. The new design language is an evolution of Hyundai's "Sensuous Sportiness" design.  ‘Sensuous’ stands for enhanced emotional values that customers can experience through design, and ‘Sportiness’ is determined to implement those values through innovative mobility solutions.
      The 『45』Concept will be unveiled on September 10th.

      Following the Concept EQV at the Geneva Auto Show back in March, Mercedes-Benz has pulled the wraps off the production version ahead of the Frankfurt Auto Show coming up in September. 
      The Mercedes says that the EQV will have a range of about 250 miles and rapid charging from 10 percent to 80 percent of the 100 kWh battery in less than one hour. Interior space is not compromised as the battery is stored under the floor of the vehicle.  Drivers can control the recuperation levels with paddles behind the steering wheel, with the strongest setting being akin to braking allowing single pedal operation. The drive unit is a 204 horsepower / 267 lb-ft of torque motor that drives the front wheels. Top speed is said to be 99 mph. 
      Passengers can expect a lounge like interior with EQ specific décor and the MBUX infotainment system. Two wheelbases will be available. 
      Sales in the US are an unknown at this time, but with the threat of tariffs looming, we highly doubt it. The only EV that Daimler offered in the US is the Smart Fourtwo, but that model and brand will be departing the US for China after 2019.

      The German motor vehicle authority (Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt) has determined that Mercedes-Benz has delivered vehicles that used illegal cheat software to achieve lower emissions of NOx and CO2 during controlled conditions and preset speeds.  This allowed the vehicles to meet emissions requirements during testing, but not during real world driving.  The vehicles in question are the C220 CDI and the E220 CDI.
      Daimler has been ordered to recall up to 280,000 vehicles and the Stuttgart public prosecutor could slap a fine of up for €5000 per vehicle.  Back in June, the motor authority also ordered the recall of 60,000 GLK diesels.
      Daimler also faces the authorities in the US for higher than allowed emissions from their diesel vehicles. 
      Daimler has declined to comment while the investigation is ongoing.

    • Honestly @balthazar covered it pretty damn well. The resident hater, that never offers anything to an EV discussion other than snarky remarks and trolling, should read that three times before joining in an adult discussion again. 
    • I don’t give two $h!s what you think I remember. No AWD or 4WD option equals tall wagon. Again, regardless of the ONE GM page you found said, their own window stickers say “Wagon” and they were not once marketed as a CUV. And your reading comprehension is lacking as usual  I said that it “looks like a CUV” not that it was a CUV and that CUV buyers will not look twice at it SINCE IT IS NOT A CUV! Understand it now? Big difference there that even a five year old could figure out.   And comparing a car that’s half the price of the Bolt (your Kicks reference)? That takes a special kind of stretching to say the least.    Just keep that level of ignorance to yourself next time.  Wtf does my previous job have anything to do with this conversation? The answer is “nothing”. Personally I find it sad that you’ve done it for 26 years yet come off as spectacularly ignorant towards a huge subsection of cars but that laugh fest is for another time.   For the record though, I’ve worked at three different dealerships in two states in the last eighteen years, two of those in sales. Doesn’t change any facts mentioned here so keep that condescending BS to yourself.   Speaking of “how many times”   How many times do we need that you hate EVs? You talk the talk but sure as hell cant walk the walk. Just more juvenile snowflake bull$h!. 
    • reminds me of what it will be like at the admissions office into a nursing home
    • Nissan Kicks (FWD only CUV of small stature) 2019 YTD through the second quarter:  29263 Chevy Bolt (FWD only CUV of small stature) 2019 YTD through the second quarter:  8281.   Surreal, don't think I don't remember when you dug in your heels insisting the Bolt IS NOT a CUV... now you say it is. LOL so you were a lot jockey at a dealership for five minutes last year.  How many times do we need to hear this.  I've worked at dealerships every working day since March, 1993.
