we have Not been able to find a better title to head these lines. And is that the market of SUV has become an imagined ring in which to fight the brands with all types of gloves. One of the last battles that began not too facing SUV arrived from the most luxurious brands on the market. In this way we find the fighters of the likes of the Bentley Bentayga or Maserati Levante, fight to the who will join Rolls-Royce and Lamborghini soon. Best of all is that, apparently, there will be more fighters, as the latest reports claim that Maybach will launch an SUV in the next few years.
Ola Källenius, a member of the board of management of Daimler AG and responsible for sales and marketing of Mercedes, has not denied that the company is working on a model of these features. According to Källenius a luxury SUV come from Maybach makes sense as this segment continues to grow and, as we can observe, there seems to be no signs of this trend slowing. The SUV would be based on the Mercedes GLS, and could arrive in 2019, when we completed the renovation of the todocamino.
Without giving many more tracks, Ola Källenius said to CarAdvice that it is “possible” to launch a competitor for the newly arrived Bentley Bentayga. But not only must deal with the English. Since Maserati has come to the Levante, an SUV that keeps that spirit sporty and stylish of the brand. And from Rolls-Royce and Lamborghini will come two other competitors that paint very, very well. In addition we must not forget the Range Rover Autobiography, one of the SUV more exclusive and aristocratic market.
in Addition to confirming that you are studying this possibility, the same Källenius ruled out a possible model based on the Mercedes E-Class. The reason is simple, the project raised must be sufficiently exclusive to Maybach.
