Mercedes-Benz has unveiled a new 'Night Series' package for the complete Maybach lineup. The brand-new Series was introduced during an exclusive event in New York City. The S-Class and the EQS SUV will be the first to receive the new version, followed by the GLS in early 2024.

The Mercedes-Benz Night Series options programme, which was developed especially for its ultra-luxury Maybach sub-brand, has just been unveiled by the German automaker. The Night Series design package, a high-end option for all three Maybach models, enables owners to further customise their cars for more exclusivity. Even while this new top-of-the-line package may be considered a bid by Mercedes to compete with Rolls-Royce's hugely popular Black Badge edition, it only features aesthetic interior and cosmetic upgrades to differentiate it from the rest of the range. Mechanically speaking, the Maybach vehicles that come with the Night Series options package will be the same as the regular cars they are based on. Read on to know more about what this brand-new exclusive series has in store for Mercedes fans.

Mercedes-Benz Night Series Package: The Exclusive Upgrades

Dark chrome and rose gold trim, dark-gloss wheels, jewel-cut surfaces, and herringbone wood patterns inside the cabin are just a few of the specific additions that the Night Series package provides. There are also other model-specific treatments offered along with that. Starting with the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, the Night Series iteration is available in a variety of Black, Grey, and White finishes as well as the two-tone Onyx Black/Mojave Silver finish. The specially designed wheels, which have a black finish and several Maybach insignia, are undoubtedly the exterior's standout feature. Rose gold highlights in the headlamps contrast with the dark metallic chrome components.

Premium two Nappa leather upholstery from the custom Manufaktur division covers the interior of the cabin. Deep White/Black Pearl Exclusive and Black Pearl Exclusive are the two options available for buyers to choose from. Inside, there are herringbone accents, several Maybach logos, a piano black trim piece with the brand's symbol, and a distinctive start-up animation for the MBUX infotainment system.

Mercedes Benz Dark Night Series Interior

Both the inside and the outside of the Maybach GLS and the EQS models receive a similar makeover. However, both the Maybach EQS and GLS models' front bumper air intakes also use the wheel design. The GLs may be obtained in white or Obsidian Black in addition to the sedan's two-tone exterior treatment, while the EQS will come in Diamond White or Obsidian Black. The two Maybach SUVs' interiors will come in two colours: Black Pearl Exclusive or Crystal White/Black Pearl Nappa leather, along with wood trim with aluminium accents. The EQS model will also include eco-friendly Econyl carpet, and the company claims the upholstery is made of vegetable-tanned leather.

Mercedes-Benz Night Series Package: Gorden Wagener Comments

Sharing his thoughts on the new Night Series Package, Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer, Mercedes-Benz Group, stated: “Night Series is the most progressive Maybach design package – it’s our already well-known supreme aesthetics, heightened with exquisite, darkened motifs. Our goal was to create an exciting new style, offering a playful sense of rebellion that is unexpected to what you usually see in a Mercedes-Maybach.”

Mercedes-Benz Night Series Package: Price

The price of the Maybach cars with the Night Series package has not yet been disclosed by Mercedes, but we anticipate it to be not less than $25,000 more expensive than the standard versions. In contrast, the Rolls-Royce Black Badge models cost about $45,000 higher than the rest of the lineup's cars. The Black Badge programme, which the premium manufacturer launched in 2016, has been a smashing success, contributing up to 50 per cent of sales in certain regions. It will be intriguing to find out if the Night Series package from the luxury carmaker can capture the same charm.
