Mercedes has announced a new generation of Maybach S-ClassSeptember 3, 2020
The next generation Mercedes-Benz S-class executive sedan in an even more luxurious version of Maybach will debut in November, followed by the high-performance S63e and S73e from the AMG sports division. The latter will receive plug-in hybrid motors.
Just yesterday, Mercedes unveiled the all-new S-class. We already know when to expect the rest of the representative family. British automobile magazine Autocar has learned that the official premiere of a more luxurious performance of the Maybach Eski is slated for November. Unsurprisingly, the extended sedan will premiere at the Guangzhou Auto Show in China, where the Maybach brand is enjoying great success.
Mercedes has already announced that the Maybach S-Class will be powered by a 6.0-liter V12 twin-turbo engine and a whopping 621 horsepower (1,000 Nm).
The new S-Class is larger than its predecessor. Traditionally, the Maybach version of the model will have a huge wheelbase. Apart from the confirmed 4Matic all-wheel drive system, there is no further information on this version of the sedan at the time of this writing. However, Markus Schaefer, a member of the board of directors of the German automaker, said the Maybach version would be “very different from the long versions of the regular S-class.”
In addition, high-performance versions of the new S-class – S63e and S73e – will be presented. Both are said to combine a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 with a rear-mounted electric motor, which is said to develop 134bhp in the S63e to deliver nearly 700bhp in total. The S73e will use a 201 hp electric motor for a total output of 805 hp.
The S63e and S73e are believed to be in the final stages of development and will use a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of approximately 20 kWh. It is unclear when their debut will take place, however, it is known that the start of their sales in the UK is scheduled only for the middle of next year.
Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that a prototype of the updated Mercedes-Benz C-Class 2022 was seen on tests. As many as two test prototypes of the German novelty were seen at the Nürburgring race track. Judging by the posted video, the machines were undergoing a series of high-speed tests.
