In fact, there’s quite a blue hue to everything inside, with both the 360-degree glass panel that encircles the cabin and the transparent centre tunnel glowing in the colour. Behind the glass panel are the dials – digital, but with real needles – and information screens, while the centre console provides a spooky visualisation of the electric energy flow.
Like the coupe, this concept is of course all-electric. This is subtly signalled by the Rose Gold finish – Mercedes’ hue of choice to signify its electric cars – in places like the trim on the centre-lock 24-inch wheels. Within each of those wheels is an electric motor fed by batteries under the car’s floor for a total, all-wheel drive power system of nearly 750bhp. 0-62mph? Under four seconds.
Perhaps more pertinent, as both Mercedes EQ electric cars and standalone Maybach models get closer to production, is the claim that the Vision Maybach 6 Cabriolet has a range of 200-300 miles, with a quick-charge function able to add 62 miles of range in just five minutes.
Enough to get you home if it rains then… even in Southern California.
