Mercedes Benz teases luxury electric car

Mercedes Benz teases luxury electric carThe name and the massive chromed grille might ring a bell, because the 20-foot-long Vision 6 is a topless version of the eponymous concept shown at last year’s edition of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The dark blue paint brings out the gorgeous proportions and the art deco-inspired lines. This is the car Jay Gatsby would drive if he made his money in Silicon Valley during the dot-com boom.

The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet runs on pure electric propulsion. It is equipped an 80 kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack placed under its floors and four permanent-magnet synchronous electric motors, which can provide the Cabriolet a combined 550kW.

There is one area that’s a throwback to the past and that’s the cluster in front of the driver. The gauges are based on wind turbines a common design element used in Art Deco. Surprisingly they fit well in the futuristic interior of the car.

Parent company Daimler AG, however, said it will invest more than $11 billion to bring at least 10 new electric cars to market by 2022.
