It has been reported that Daimler will be announcing their decision on Maybach on July 1st, however it seems that it will be postponed until late July. Previously, reports said that there are only two options, to axe the brand or to get a partnership with the British carmaker Aston Martin.
In an article from Automotive News, a third option emerges and according to three company sources the other option is to keep Maybach as a Mercedes-Benz brand, like AMG. While AMG is the sub-brand for sports and performance vehicles, Maybach would be used for the company’s top-of-the-line models for S, CL and GL class.
As of now, spokespersons of both Daimler and Aston Martin refuse to comment on Maybach’s future as a board meeting is still scheduled to happen.
