The first new model will be introduced in LosAngeles in a few weeks: the uber-luxury, stretched wheelbase Mercedes S-Class,which will be badged as the Mercedes-Maybach.
Coming next, in 2015, is an even larger and more luxurious Mercedes-Maybach Pullman, featuring 18 more inches of luxury over the currentS-Class. Later on, the company plans to narrow the gap between Mercedes-Benz-badgedvehicles and their performance-oriented Mercedes-AMG brethren, offering carslike the upcoming C450 that will feature higher-output engines and sportiersuspensions, similar to Audi's S vehicles.
