Mercedes-Benz Reveals Ultra-Luxe Maybach Electric SUV Concept
Everything about this luxury Mercedes-Benz concept screams sophistication. It’s the first all-electric Maybach, and a sure-fire disrupter in the high-end lane.

Mercedes-Benz has come through with maybe its best EV concept to date. A concept that will soon become reality.
We’re, of course, talking about the Mercedes-Maybach EQS.
Very few concepts stand the test of time. They’re either far too ambitious or rarely alter enough to be worthy of a full roll-out. The Mercedes-Maybach EQS falls into its own category as a bonafide stud, complete with a sleek two-tone paint finish and full electric architecture.
But wait, it gets better.
The interior of the vehicle is multi-purpose, meaning you can work hard and play even harder. Its yacht-style inside is only heightened thanks to executive-style seats and “faux fur” floor covering.
There’s also the “High-End Rear Seat Entertainment System” that adds an additional layer of sophistication that you just don’t get with other vehicles.
Seriously, take a look at the image below and tell us it doesn’t look like you’re on a yacht à la Wolf of Wall Street.

“The near-production concept car represents proof that state-of-the-art electric drive technology and pioneering infotainment with the MBUX Hyperscreen combine perfectly with hallmark Maybach craftsmanship and an exquisite interior,” said Philipp Schiemer, Head of Top End Vehicle Group at Mercedes-Benz AG.
According to sources, the range of the vehicle is around the 600km mark (roughly 372 miles), which would put it in good stead alongside competition in the luxury SUV segment.

Let’s touch on the design again for a moment.
The big grille is nowhere to be found with this particular Mercedes-Benz offering. Instead, the nose features an expansive panel with vertical pinstripes that pay homage to other vehicles in the lineup.
Furthermore, for drivers, the door of this electric SUV open automatically, like magic.
The Mercedes-Maybach EQS is but a preview of what’s to come from the carmaker. Mercedes-Benz are eyeing the series production of the EQS in 2022. So not that long to wait if you’re an avid Mercedes-Benz follower in need of a new ride.
Concept vehicles like the Mercedes-Maybach EQS are a statement. But how do you think it will fare once released? Will it succeed in the way Mercedes-Benz wants it to? Or is it far too ambitious for everyday life? Leave us a comment below.
