The tendency of SUVS to grow and grow. luxury Brands as Bentley already have their own great the whole way of high-end luxury; even Lamborghini is also developing a model, the Lamborghini Urus. Brands, even the more luxurious and exclusive, you have to adapt to new trends, as they have done to the new technologies. It is for this reason that, in the last few months, it takes concocting lies the possible arrival of a Mercedes-Maybach for the SUV segment.
Such rumors have already ceased to be because a few days ago the CEO of Mercedes, Dieter Zetsche, confirmed of a form “indirect,” but clearly the arrival of a Mercedes-Maybach with the body of the SUV. Also the chief designer of Mercedes, Gorden Wagoner, I was making some important statement to our fellow Auto Express, saying that Maybach, like AMG, could have your house models without being versions based on existing vehicle of Mercedes.
Wagoner qualifies the idea of the SUV Maybach as a “modern luxury”. Says that “other competitors are high-end luxury adopt a more traditional approach. The difference is that modern luxury is of better taste.” With this it seems to us that in this model SUV signed by Maybach will opt for a aesthetic details and the most current in place of a court classic as in the Maybach derivative of the Mercedes s Class.
on the other hand, Auto Express also claims to have spoken with the vice president of marketing of the brand of the star, Jens Thiemer. Thiemer would have declared that the future of this type of vehicles of the highest luxury with the signature Maybach you will also pass through the electrification of their mechanical. “The electrification, of course, will all the cars and we have to be prepared. There will come a time in which the line is electrified, with either hybrid plug-in or electric motors pure”, referring to the sub-brands Maybach and AMG.
