Talking to Autocar, global sales boss Matthias Luhrs said: "There are currently no plans to have a pure Maybach brand, and there is no need," he added explaining that the long-wheelbase S-Class Maybach has sold more than 15,000 models since it launched, with half of those sales in China.
"It shows we've found the sweet spot," Luhrs said.
He did, however, admit that Mercedes is considering a number of different options for Maybach including an SUV. If it will indeed continue its strategy of building on existing models, this would most likely be based on the GLS.
"A Maybach SUV is definitely one of lots of options, but we have no decision yet," he added.
