Upcoming Mercedes-Benz S-Class Pullman will cost about $1 million

Although it axed the Maybach luxury brand, Mercedes-Benz didn’t abandon the idea of a rival for brands such as Rolls-Royce. As a result, the German manufacturer will roll-out the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class Pullman that will carry a price tag of $1 million (733,000 euros) for the version carrying armor plating and three rows of seats.

This means that the new S-Class Pullman will be more expensive than the long wheelbase version of the Rolls-Royce Phantom. According to Bloomberg, the upcoming S-Class Pullman will have a length of 6400 mm, which is about 406 mm more than the long wheelbase version of the Rolls-Royce Phantom.

Inside sources said that the S-Class Pullman will offer four rear seats that will face each other and will be separated from the chauffeur compartment by a window.

Still, this is not the only vehicle coming from Mercedes-Benz as the carmaker also plans to unveil an extra-long Maybach Edition of the current S-Class in November, at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show.

By pursuing three engineering priorities -- "Intelligent Drive", "Efficient Technology" and "Essence of Luxury" – at the same time, the new Mercedes S-Class goes beyond being just a technological spearhead for the German premium carmaker. The S-Class has also become a technological lead for automotive world.

Just like the previous generations, the new S-Class is expected by customers to set new benchmarks on the way to retaining its status as "the best automobile in the world." According to Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars, their goal for the S-Class was to become the “best or nothing” in every automotive aspect – aesthetics and safety, power and efficiency, dynamism and comfort. He noted that the S-Class best represents the Mercedes-Benz brand promise.

To pursue the "Essence of Luxury," Mercedes worked to ensure perfection to the last detail results. This is evident on every element in the interior of the S-Class. Form seats, controls, cabin design, the infotainment, air conditioning, passenger comfort and safety. These elements were realized to achieve the high standards that the engineers set for the new S-Class.

Meanwhile, the pursuit for "Intelligent Drive" meant merging comfort and safety into one. This was achieved with the new Distronic Plus driver assistance and the Pre-Safe systems. Thanks to a whole host of new systems, the new S-Class has become more comfortable and safer.
