Maybach Gets Its First EV

  • Mercedes-Benz Maybach has officially unveiled its first EV.
  • Based off the Mercedes EQS, the Maybach EV version will feature all of the luxury comforts you’d associate with the brand.
  • It will be designed for both power and comfort, with fast speeds, powerful torque, and a deep focus on rear passenger comfort.

Mercedes-Benz Maybach has introduced its first electric vehicle, the EQS 680 4Matic SUV. Unveiled at the Shanghai auto show, the first Maybach EV will be based on the Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV but will fill it with all the opulence found in other Maybachs to craft a new kind of luxury car.


Maybach Electric Performance Specs

Yes, Maybach has already developed a hybrid – the S 580 e – but this will be the first truly electric Maybach. The EQS 680 4Matic will feature a dual-motor, all-wheel-drive powertrain producing 649 hp and 701 lb-ft of torque. It’ll also have a 0-60 mph time of 4.1 seconds and a top speed of 130 mph.

We don’t have details on the battery capacity yet, but if it’s like the Merc 580 4Matic, it could have a 108.4 kWh battery. This is probably a close estimate, as the 580 4Matic gets a 340-mile range, and the 680 4Matic specs from The Globe and Mail say it should have a 600-km (373-mile) range.


Luxury Comfort in the Maybach Electric Suv

The regular EQS 680 SUV is a full-size SUV with three seating rows. But for this version, Maybach has replaced the last two rows with two individual seats lined in nappa leather. Of course, you’ll see the usual Maybach chrome touches along the dash and doors.

Since Maybachs are the type of car you’re driven around in rather than driving yourself, the bulk of the luxury comforts is saved for the back seats. First off, the rear seats have ventilation, a massage function, and neck and shoulder heating. You’ll also have 11.6-inch displays on the front seats’ backrests, a wood-trimmed seat divider, and a built-in fridge. The silver-plated champagne flutes are an optional add-on.

In addition, you’ll have access to an extended center console with two thermal cup holders and a shelf for a rear tablet. You can charge your tech via four fast-charging USB-C ports and two HDMI ports. 

As for the ride quality, Comfort mode has been replaced with a special Maybach mode, which is designed for “maximum driving comfort” for rear passengers. It makes sure you experience only minimal body movements under the rear seats thanks to a special oscillation node.


Do We Know the Electric Maybach Price?

No, we don’t know yet how much the first Maybach EV will cost. But considering the pedigree, fun power specs, and luxe comfort features, it’ll most likely cost much more than the base Mercedes EQS models – possibly around $250,000.
