Bearing a sticker price of Rs 2.50 crore, ex-showroom, the new Mercedes-Maybach S-Class has been introduced in India in two variants – S580 and S680 – with the latter getting an even higher price tag of Rs 3.20 core, ex-showroom, India, owing to it being a full CBU import.

Mercedes-Benz India claims that all allocated units of the S680 for India have already been sold out until 2023.

The locally-assembled version comes powered by a 4.0-litre, V8 petrol engine producing 503hp and 700Nm of peak torque, and also get a 48V mild-hybrid system that provides a 20hp boost. The S680, on the other hand, boasts a significantly more powerful 6.0-litre, V12 petrol unit developing 612hp and 900Nm of peak torque. Both engines come mated to a 9-speed automatic gearbox, with power being channelised to all four wheels.

The opulent sedan is based on the long-wheelbase version of the regular S-Class and gets an additional 180mm wheelbase. There are differentiating design elements like a Maybach-specific grille, alloy wheels, as well as Maybach badges.

The cabin of this flagship sedan gets Maybach-specific upholstery and trims, including exclusive graphics for the touchscreen as well as infotainment system. The rear compartment gets two seats separated by a floor console, as well as ventilation and massage function for the occupants.

The new Maybach S-Class gets Level-II autonomous driving features, along with 13 airbags and a 360-degree camera.

“The launch of the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class underlines our focus on introducing the most desirable products for our Indian customers and exceed the luxury offering introduced by the new S-Class. It reiterates the implementation of advanced technology and flexible processes in our manufacturing process,” said Martin Schwenk, MD and CEO, Mercedes-Benz India.
