Mercedes-Maybach to Launch ‘Pullman’ in Geneva

By Paul Joseph

In 1964, production began on the Mercedes-Benz 600, which came to be known as the Pullman, thanks to its generous length and spacious interior that made it resemble a classic Pullman train carriage.

Fifty years later comes the Mercedes-Maybach Pullman, to mark the half-century that has passed since the car was introduced to the world, with its official debut set for the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland.

With a length of 6.5 metres, the new Pullmana features a generously-sized club lounge in the rear complete with an array of high-spec components and functions including two Burmester sound systems and three analog instruments in the roof liner informing passengers in the rear of the outside temperature, speed and time.

“Quite apart from providing stately and stylish seating for high-ranking passengers in the comfort and spaciousness for which it is famed, the new Mercedes-Maybach Pullman is of course the embodiment of exclusivity at its highest level,” said a Mercedes-Benz representative.

“One can sense the significance and greatness of it in every detail.”

The new Mercedes-Maybach Pullman will be available from the beginning of 2016, with prices starting at around €500,000.

Last year Mercedes revived the Maybach brand by launching the Mercedes-Maybach S600. At the time, Mercedes confirmed that more models under the Mercedes-Maybach sub-brand would be introduced in the future.

Taking place from March 5th – 15th, the Geneva Motor Show is one of the car industry’s biggest and most eagerly awaited events.
