Designed as an electric car, the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet has a combined output of 550 kW and has a driving range of over 500km.
"The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet takes modern luxury into the realms of the ultimate in luxury, and is the perfect embodiment of our design strategy.

Key Design Features
The lavishly styled Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet embodies the classic and ultra-modern design cues.
The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet measures nearly 6 metres in length and features classic proportions of art deco design with a long hood and flowing lines. Wearing Nautical Blue metallic paint, a large Mercedes-Maybach grille with vertical struts dominate the front-end along with thin headlights. The rear-end, reminiscent of a luxury yacht ‘boat tail’ features vertical tail light clusters and an aluminum-framed diffuser. The Vision Maybach 6 Cabriolet rides on large 24-inch light-alloy wheels with rose gold centre locks. The model is also fitted with a custom-made fabric roof with interwoven rose gold threads.
A futuristic interior with white Nappa leather upholstery and open-pore wooden floor creates a luxurious interior ambience.
The interior features a flowing design to create a 360-degree open-air lounge effect. Crystal white Nappa leather with a diamond pattern quilting provide striking contrast and rose gold trim details add to the opulence. Upholstery buttons feature the Mercedes star and all of them are backlit in blue. The yachting theme is further emphasised with the open-pore wood floor with inlaid aluminum.
Two round analogue dials provide a classic look and 3 air vents positioned below the central wing appear as floating engines. Another prominent feature is a ‘floating’ transparent centre tunnel with blue fibre optics hinting at the electrical energy flow provided by the electric motors. Additional vehicle and travel information are displayed via 2 head-up displays projected onto the windscreen.
The all-wheel drive Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet is powered by 4 compact magnet synchronous electric motors with a flat battery positioned in the underbody. Total system output is pegged at 550 kW with acceleration from zero to 100 kph taking place in around 4 seconds before hitting a limited top speed of 250 kph. The vehicle has a range of over 500 km and a quick-charging function allows for 100 km range to be charged in 5 minutes.
The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet is a concept that follows from the Coupe version shown last year and imagines what the future of luxurious mobility could look like.
