Mercedes-Benz concept electric car

The two-seater electric car convertible was described as a sensual, emotionally appealing car with a touch of Mercedes-Benz’s signature design. Yet behind its classic look is the power of an electric car with a drive system output of 550kW (750PS) featuring four compact permanent magnet synchronous electric motors.

This allows the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet to reach over 500km (NEDC) or over 200m (EPA) of driving distance. It also gives the same performance of a typical sports car wherein it can accelerate from zero to 100kph in under four seconds. The top speed is said to reach 250kph.

The proposed quick-charge functionality based on the CCS standard is expected to reach charging capacity of up to 350kW.

In addition, a five-minute charge is said to reach an additional range of about 100km.

The aesthetic design concept

The Mercedes-Benz electric car concept also boasts a stretched-curved luxurious design which is more or less six meters in length. The concept design is painted with nautical blue metallic bringing balance to the gigantic aluminum radiator grille while the alloy rims bring out rose gold reflections.

Mercedes-Benz boasts on the Maybach 6 Cabriolet’s combined classic traditional design, the ultimate luxury and artificial intelligence. According to online magazine, this car will be equipped with touch-sensitive controls, a mapping function, and a voice command system that acts like Apple’s personal assistant, Siri.

Some enthusiasts suggested that this concept car should be capable of self-driving though Mercedes-Benz did not indicate anything to that effect. And while this is just a concept car and might not reach the production facility, future models are expected to have a glimpse of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet.
