Daimler AG never fully confirmed the final ending to the luxury brand Maybach until today. Daimler and Mercedes finally ended the silence and confirmed the death of Maybach.
A price list with the word ‘Discontinued’ next to all Maybach models confirms the fact we already knew since November last year when Chief Executive Dieter Zetsche was quoted in an interview with the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.
Daimler will continue to produce the Maybach models until the fifth generation of the S-Class will be unveiled in 2013, which will fill in the void left by Maybach. Dieter Zeche plans to extend the number of S-Class derivatives from a current three to seven.
