Who makes Maybach?
Currently Maybach is a high-end car edition of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class that belongs to the Mercedes-Benz range owned by the German car manufacturer Daimler AG.
Maybach was created more than 100 years ago as a subsidiary of Luftschiffbau Zeppelin GmbH. In 1919, it constructed its first experimental car, which was later turned into a production model. Maybach became the property of Daimler-Benz in 1960. It was closed in 2012, but three years later Daimler revived it as “Mercedes-Maybach”.
Where is Maybach made?
Initially Maybach cars were built in Stuttgart, Germany. When World War II started, the company couldn’t create commercial vehicles any more, and it turned to making equipment for the Nazis. However, even when the war ended, the Maybach was unable to become a car maker again. In fact, it only manufactured car parts and engines.
However, in the 2000s Mercedes-Benz launched a new high-end range under the Maybach name. These cars are constructed only in one factory, which is situated in Germany. There are no other Maybach manufacturing plants anywhere in the world. It uses quite unusual manufacturing techniques. You won’t see an assembly line here, as vehicles are hand made according to customer requests. Due to this, every future owner can make several changes to the basic design, and thus, get a customized vehicle tailored to his personal needs. It’s hardly a surprise that such cars have a very high price tag.
