STUTTGART. Next year it will be 100 years ago that Wilhelm Maybach’s first luxury W3 six-cylinder engine was introduced. Today, the name is carried by the brand, which has been operating as a luxury division of Mercedes-Maybach since 2015.
It should be noted that Maybach returned as a separate brand in 2002, but due to the later outbreak of the economic crisis never lived up to Mercedes’ expectations. Just over 3,000 Maybachs were created in just 10 years.
However, the luxury division has been doing well over the past 5 years, with more than 60,000 units sold worldwide in the S Maybach class. The largest buyers of premium limousines are China and Russia.
After the introduction of the seventh-generation S-Class (known internally as W223) it was only a matter of time before Mercedes showed it as a graceful Maybach too.
“In the past, luxury was often associated with wealth and extravagance. Today at Mercedes we see it more as a state of great comfort, lightness and timeless aesthetics. It’s about cleanliness, fascinating technology and maximum quality,” said Ola Källenius, CEO of Daimler.
The sedan measures 5469mm, which means that it is still 180mm longer than the usual extended S-Class. The increased wheelbase brings even more space to the most important part of the cabin: the rear seat.
