New reports reveal that Mercedes uses art deco inspiration for its electric car concept. According to reports, the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet is more than six meters long, which is about 20 feet. The cabriolet features a single line that reportedly runs the length of the vehicle.
It is reported Engadget, that the back of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach is inspired by yachts and called a boat tail. It is believed that the automaker is trying to keep history alive as judging from the exterior of the vehicle, it looks very much like luxury vehicles from the ’30s. Although not much is known about the Vision 6 vehicle, it is believed that it will cost similar to other vehicles in the line.
If this vision is realized, it is believed that the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet will feature powerful specs. Meanwhile, the cabriolet is expected to use electrons instead of gas. The vision 6 will feature all-wheel drive as well as four compact permanent magnet synchronous electric motors that deliver 750 horsepower.
According to reports, it delivers zero to 60 under four seconds coupled with a top speed geared at 155 miles per hour. Mercedes stated that the vehicle features a flat battery pack incorporated at its base to keep the vehicle on the road for up to 200 miles. The automaker also teases that the addition of DC fast charging will allow the vehicle to be charged to allow it go up to 60 miles in five minutes.
Engadget stated in its post that while the exterior of the Vision 6 is from the time of Al Capone, the vehicle’s interior is futuristic in almost every regard. The report added that the upcoming vehicle features a design that is similar to that of the Mercedes EQ SUV. The Vision 6 will also feature a functionality that allows it to share information such as time, location, and upcoming events with drivers and passengers.
the Vehicle is expected to have touchscreen controls but will likely not sport the pulsing blue wires seen at the front of the vehicle used to display the energy usage of the car. However, it is still not clear whether the Vision 6 will make it to the production stage, given the history of most concept vehicle. Mercedes is also yet to reveal any official detail in this regard.
