Mercedes Maybach brand is officially dead. Yesterday on internet, a gossip spread all over the web sites; Mercedes decided to stop the production of Maybach and not to offer 2013 model. Everyone in automotive industry predicted this and waiting for this quite long time. Due to Maybach’s insufficient competitive power over Rolls Royce and Bentley, sales of Maybach dropped very badly.
Maybach did not have that Rolls Royce feeling of bespoke luxury and comfort or driving experience of Bentley. And Maybach was based on the chassis of previous Mercedes S-Class with outdated technology. So many things prepared this end.
On the other hand, Mercedes has not limits to boost the amount of luxury and comfort with the upcoming S-Class. I think, we are going to see a very different S-Class next year.
