The New Electric Mercedes 'Maybach Charges Faster than a Phone, Goes from 0-60 Under 4 Seconds

August 21, 2016, 6:26 am

THIS car is the latest luxury offering to be teased by Mercedes – a six-metre-long electric motor which can charge faster than your mobile phone.

The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 offers a glimpse into the future of driving, aiming to combine timeless design with state-of-the-art technology.

Boasting a 750 horsepower engine, the car will be able to go from 0-60 miles per hour in under four seconds, and can charge 62 miles in five minutes with the average phone charger.

And the electric Maybach 6, so named for its six metre length, may be a big beast, but driving it will feel so good that it’ll put you off the idea of self-driving cars.


Mercedes-Benz are certain that driverless motors will be redundant for wealthy petrolheads, since the thrill of driving luxury cars is never going to go out of fashion.

Design head Gorden Wagener told Bloomberg: “This is a car you want to drive yourself.

“This is something you pass to your children, like a Leica camera or a chronograph watch. Driving has been a pleasure since 130 years and will stay that way another 130 years.”



Designers looked to unlikely inspiration whilst crafting this stunning concept, with the car’s extended rear based on the smooth curves of a luxury yacht.

Meanwhile, the front windscreen features a transparent display which can be controlled by gesturing at it, whilst the doors and dashboard keep it classy with a traditional wood trim.
