It could preview the upcoming Mercedes-Maybach GLS

While it no longer functions as a stand-alone brand since it’s revival as Mercedes-Maybach, the German luxury marque has made a habit of launching at least one exotic concept car per year. Last year it was a sleek pair of Vision 6 two-door models. In 2018, Maybach is kicking things off at the Beijing Motor Show later this month with yet another opulent concept car. Previewed by a 30-second teaser video called "Luxury at its finest," the new vehicle seems to be the fanciest Maybach to date.

The video centers around the interior design, which seems to include several new ideas for the brand.

Unfortunately, the teaser does not reveal the identity of the car, and it doesn’t provide hints as to what body style it has. However, we do know that the next-generation Mercedes-Benz GLS will get a Maybach version, so the concept could be an early preview of the luxury SUV.

The video centers around the interior design, which seems to include several new ideas for the brand. There’s a lot of aluminum on the dashboard and the center console, and leather covers almost every surface. The wide center console extends in the rear section, where we can see a pair of comfortable seats. Up front, the lower part of the center stack includes no fewer than three screens in addition to the usual infotainment display.

Fancy details include leather straps on the door panels, high-end wood trim, blue carbon-fiber, and a white steering wheel that can detect swipes like a smartphone

Fancy details include leather straps on the door panels, high-end wood trim, blue carbon-fiber, and a white steering wheel that can detect swipes like a smartphone. It even has flowers between the rear seats, so we’re talking Rolls-Royce stuff here. Naturally, it will also debut new technology and features that might make it into production models soon, but we won’t find out until the vehicle breaks cover at the Beijing Motor Show. Make sure you stick around for more info.
