The Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury Cancellation Details

Mercedes-Maybach has recently canceled the production of its Mutant SUV project, which was originally set to arrive in 2025. This production SUV-sedan version was a direct inspiration from the 2018 Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury concept. But, now it’s time to bid farewell, as the automaker has reportedly decided to discontinue the Mercedes-Maybach Mutant SUV sedan. It will never see the light of day. This uniquely designed ultra-luxurious vehicle was originally intended for the Chinese market. Its design blurs the boundaries between SUVs and sedans, much like the Ferrari Purosangue. However, plans for the Mercedes-Maybach SUV Sedan have now been abandoned, likely due to cost-related considerations. In this post, we’ve discussed the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury Cancellation Details and everything we knew about the SUV Sedan’s powertrain, luxury, and tech features. 

In 2018, Mercedes-Maybach showcased the Vision Ultimate Luxury Concept vehicle in Beijing. You know, the Mercedes Concept that made waves in the industry, particularly in the luxury car segment. Mercedes-Maybach intended the then-impending production reality version, set for a 2025 arrival, to mirror the concept vehicle’s design. Like the Ultimate Luxury concept, the production version, according to the brand, was going to adopt an upright stance and generous ground clearance of an SUV with the three-box proportions of a sedan. Talk about the best of both worlds.

The 2025 Mercedes-Maybach SUV Sedan Discontinuation Reasons

When we first heard the Mercedes-Maybach news, we considered the project as just a design exploration. However, Sources in 2020 hinted that the brand was going to make the Mutant SUV Sedan a production reality in 2025. As we said before, the Mercedes-Maybach Discontinued Model was for the Chinese market, which has recently had a surge in luxury cars. 

Fast forward to 2024, a recent report from the German newspaper Handelsblatt reveals that Mercedes has entirely scrapped the Mutant SUV project. Mercedes has discontinued the Chinese SUV due to production costs. 

2025 Maybach SUV Sedan Features

Dimension-wise, the SUV sedan measured 5,260 mm (207 inches) in length. The Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury was as large as the Mercedes GLS and boasted a lavish, technology-filled four-seater interior. It was about to become one of the best family SUVs.

Diverging from many large, fuel-thirsty SUVs, the Mutant SUV sedan had four electric motors that produced 750 horsepower. In terms of power capacity, the vehicle had an 80 kWh battery pack delivering a driving range of up to 200 miles (550 km).

The Maybach SUV Sedan Would Have The EVA2 Platform

The intended final Maybach SUV Sedan production model shared the EVA2 underpinnings with the Mercedes EQE sedan. However, the company decided against introducing a third body style, the EQE SUS (Sports Utility Sedan). This was because the brand thought Chinese buyers might not show sufficient interest in another sizable electric vehicle. Although Mercedes has dropped the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury project, Chinese SUV buyers can look into the Aznom Palladium. 

The Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury Project Was A China-Exclusive

Intriguingly, the Maybach SUV Sedan was the first Mercedes that was exclusively manufactured in China. Not even on the North American or Australian markets. That’s it for the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury Cancellation Details.
