Say goodbye to Maybach! Mercedes-Benz is axing the line after it failed to impress customers! The brand Maybach will be no more by 2013.
Autoweek got a source who said that Mercedes-Benz thinks it’s wiser to “cut our losses with Maybach than to continue into an uncertain future with a brand that has failed to live up to original sales expectations.”
Also, Mercedes-Benz already has a back-up plan once the Maybach is no more. They will be selling the next-generation S-class in place of the Maybach since it has better chances of profiting. Mercedes-Benz chairman Dieter Zetsche called the S-class as a “superior” vehicle can take the place of the Maybach. According to Autoweek’s source, the S-class will be offered in six different body styles and three kinds of wheelbase.
