With the 2018 Beijing Motor Show set to kick off in just a few days, Mercedes-Maybach has dropped a video teaser of what it plans to premiere at the event. It has been rumoured the carmaker will unveil a near-production ready version of the next-generation GLS, one that has been dressed up to showcase “luxury at its finest,” as the caption suggests.

The 33-second clip appears to mainly focus on the vehicle’s interior, which appears to follow the white and blue theme seen in previous Vision concepts. There’s also dashes of chrome and rose gold to further accentuate the focus on luxury the mysterious vehicle will be known for. Despite the concept tag, the vehicle’s controls do appear pretty conventional in nature.

Should this indeed be a preview for an all-new Maybach GLS, the production ready version will look to take on other luxury SUVs like the Bentley Bentayga and the upcoming Rolls-Royce Cullinan. That model is said to be unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show later this year.

Aside from a Maybach version, a regular GLS will also be available as we’ve seen in previous spyshots. Expect it to be underpinned by a new Modular High Architecture (MHA) platform, which might be used for the next-generation GLE as well. The new platform should allow for advanced autonomous driving technology and hybrid powertrain to be offered
