Mercedes-Benz is going to create a new class of carsOctober 9, 2020
The new car segment already has a name – SUL. The abbreviation stands for Sport Utility Limousine.
Mercedes-Benz is able to offer customers a unique car of its kind – the full-size luxury sedan with high ground clearance that crossovers boast today.
This information is shared by the German business newspaper Handelsblatt. It is possible that the conceptual Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury may serve as the basis for the announced car. Auto experts talk about it. Official comments on this issue have not yet been reported.
Remember, this concept car was presented two years ago at the Beijing Motor Show. Such an off-road sedan, the length of which exceeded 5.2 meters, was based on the GLS platform, and four electric motors were responsible for its performance at once. Their total capacity reached 750 hp. The power plant was supplemented by an 80 kilowatt-hour battery.
Without recharging, such an electric car could cover about 500 kilometers.
Now this curious concept can become the “ancestor” for a whole segment of cars. Such a class of cars would help the brand expand its customer base by attracting SUV fans.
