The Vision Mercedes-Maybach Vision 6 is characterized by “hot and cool” design coupled with a powerful engine and a bunch of technical innovations under the three-pointed star marque. Recently, it was discovered through a YouTube video that the concept car can also be driven using a remote control.
Marchettino, an Italian-based car lover, shared a four-minute clip showing the remote control feature of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 in his channel. In the video, a guy can be seen holding a device similar to a video game console controller. Then he uses the controller to move the electric vehicle back and forth on the lawn. After that, he loads the car into the trailer with precision.
There are a lot of practical applications offered by the remote control element of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6. One of them is it allows the driver of the car to move the car in and out of the parking area conveniently no matter how narrow is the space around it. That is similar to the key feature of the Pilot Parking Assistance provided by the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

In addition to the Cadillac Escala, another concept car that has is being talked about at present is the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6. After releasing a series of teasers in the form of photos and a video, the ultra-luxury arm of the three-pointed star brand finally unveiled the two-door coupe prototype.
According to the Global Media Site of Daimler, the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 is an electric car. The output of the vehicle’s power unit is very impressive as it is capable of producing up to 550 kW (750 hp). The low underfloor battery of the auto gives it a usable capacity of around 80 kWh and allows it to cover a range of over 500 kilometers at full charge based on an NEDC data while EPA puts the figures at 200 miles.
The output of the electric battery lets the car go from zero to 100 km/h in less than four seconds. On the other hand, its maximum speed is electronically-limited to 250 km/h. The quick charging feature of the auto provides it a charging capacity of 350 kW while it can gain an additional range of 100 kilometers in merely five minutes of charging.
The ultra-luxurious coupe was already unveiled at the Monterey Peninsula on August 16, 2016. The car will continue to be showcased there until August 21, 2016 during the Pebble Beach Concours D’Elégance.
Mercedes-Maybach mixes the elements of hotness and coolness into the styling of the Vision 6. The emotional design and the intelligent details of the car respectively make up the mentioned elements.
The long hood of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 coupled with its low roofline and greenhouse’s rearward positioning pays homage to the coupes made long ago. However, Daimler reminds us that the vehicle does not possess a retro design. Instead, it is a reinterpretation of classic and aesthetic principles.
Despite the lack of spoilers, the intelligent basic shape of the concept car makes it aerodynamically-efficient. The styling is also in line with Mercedes’ design philosophy of sensual purity.
