You might not be able to tell from the renderings, but it is truly monumental. To emphasize that point, let me give you a few of its specs straight away. First off, it's 18-feet-eight-inches long (that's almost 6 meters long, hence the 6 in its moniker).
Despite its gargantuan size, its all-electric, all-wheel drive powertrain will push it from 0 to 62 mph in less than four seconds on the way to its electronically limited top speed of 155 mph. Now, it can accelerate that quickly thanks to its 80-kilowatt-hour battery pack that puts out 738 horsepower.
To access its "technoid" (Mercedes' word, not mine) interior, occupants flip open the gullwing doors and drop into the coupe's luxurious and techie cabin.
There, they'll find a blend of old-world luxury, like open-pore elm wood floors and soft, quilted leather. These classic features are juxtaposed by high-tech highlights like a windshield that doubles as both a window and transparent digital display. The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 projects driving data and navigation information onto the windshield. And it's operated with gesture controls.
Of course, such a high-tech car is also autonomous. With a push of a button, the driver can designate driving duties to the car. After all, there's nothing more luxurious than having a computer do the driving for you.
With the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 concept, Mercedes proves that although the future of mobility will be governed by automated driving and extremely efficient designs, it doesn't mean it has to be boring.
