Maybach’s future in doubt, no decision on whether to offer next-generation model

Maybach Zeppelin Concept

It’s been quite a while since we’ve heard anything about the superluxury brand Maybach. Latest reports say that the brand’s future may be in doubt. Dieter Zetsche, CEO of Daimler AG, recently told Automotive News that the company has made no decision on whether to build a second-generation of the Maybach sedan.

The current Maybach model is now 6-years old and is based on the previous-generation platform of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

Earlier reports say that the Maybach sedan will be refreshed in 2010. Executives say that Daimler is considering whether or not to continue offering the luxury model with a V12 or a turbo-charged V8.
