Super-luxury car brands made by Mercedes-Benz, Maybach, will certainly continue to fight with Bentley and Rolls-Royce in the super premium grade in 2012. Previously, the Mercedes-Benz Maybach was reported that Daimler AG will cut these sedan sales due to unsatisfactory sales numbers since 2007 and continues to deteriorate due to global crisis.
However, this is certainly going to change drastically after the Director of Sales and Marketing Daimler AG, Joachim Schmidt, ensuring that they feel confident with Mercedes-Benz Maybach market potential in China, North America, the Middle East, and Russia. In addition, Daimler AG also ensures that the new fresh models of these sedans will be introduced from 2012.
With the most recent generation-based Mercedes-Benz S-Class (W221), Mercedes-Benz Maybach will introduce at least five new variants, namely short-chassis, long chassis, 4-door coupe, convertible, and hybrid models. All models will receive the new generation V12 engine of 6.0 liters, which is more powerful.
Hybrid variant of Mercedes-Benz Maybach will be equipped with 7-speed automatic transmission with an additional electric motor to boost the sedan power to 20 hp and can walk only with electrical energy to 16 km. This is expected to cut fuel consumption by 25 percent. Meanwhile, the other variants of Mercedes-Benz Maybach will get a 9-speed automatic transmission only.
Mercedes-Benz Maybach will be offered in 5 models
