The relaunch of Maybach apparently isn’t going to be limited to just super-luxury sedans. From the looks of it, Mercedes is planning to set Maybach up as a luxury division similar to how AMG has evolved into the company’s performance division. So prepare yourselves for a more versatile Maybach offering that will even expand into SUVs like the GL-Class.
The news comes by way of Motoring, which reported that Mercedes is already tinkering the idea of using Maybach differently when compared to its previous incarnation. So instead of models being badged as an independent Maybach brand, we could see something akin to Mercedes models being treated to uber-luxurious specifications.
Motoring is reporting that the GL-Class will be the first of Mercedes’ existing models to be given the Maybach treatment. The move is seen by some as the company’s response to the increasing number of luxury SUVs that are either in development or are in discussions to be developed soon.
