Mercedes-Benz has now announced full details about the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury that will be displayed at the Auto China show in Beijing. The car’s designers created a little strange shape with the Chinese auto market in mind that blends the aesthetics of an SUV and a sedan.
The Vision Ultimate Luxury will be powered by an electric, all-wheel-drive powertrain. The electric motors produce a total of 738 horsepower, and the 80-kilowatt-hour battery lasts for over 200 miles. A fast-charging system will regain 60 miles in just five minutes. The design of the vehicle is definitely impressive, if not beautiful. In the front of the vehicle is placed a big chrome grille that grabs attention. Muscular fenders and big intakes in the lower fascia give the car an aggressive and sporty look.
The design shows its real weirdness when you look at the vehicle in profile. The proportions of the car make you believe that you see a luxury SUV, but the end dips down to create a notchback. This shape makes the car look like a sedan with a lifted suspension. And the fan-like wheels are not doing any good for aesthetics either because they look like some ugly aftermarket pieces that some tuned cars have.
