The Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury electric crossover

There are many words in that title. What you need to take away from the words is that yes, Mercedes-Maybach has built a utility vehicle and yes, it’s an electric vehicle. If you’ve managed to skip the picture, what the words don’t tell you is that it’s far, very far, from the most attractive vehicle we’ve ever seen. The rear-end under all its angles is, um, devastating.

Revealed at the Auto China 2018 in Beijing, this Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury was essentially designed for the uber-luxury and alternative-energy-powered vehicles.

This Vision holds four compact permanent-magnet synchronous motors for a total system power output of 550 kW, or 750 horsepower. An 80-kWh battery pack is located under the floor and provides the big electric luxury utility with over 200 miles (325 kilometres) of range.

The cabin is nothing short of palatial, created for those that are chauffeured about more than anything. In fact, there’s even a tea service incorporated into a sculpted wooden tray made of ebony.
