Mercedes Maybach and Space Perspective

Mercedes Maybach has partnered with space tourism company Space Perspective, to induce luxurious transportation in every aspect of their space exploration experience. Space Perspective is the world’s first carbon-neutral spaceflight company. The company was founded in 2019 and aims to offer commercial space flights using a giant SpaceBalloon.

Mercedes Maybach electric vehicles (EVs) will exclusively transport explorers to and from their spaceflight take off locations. Without the use of rockets, Space Perspective’s spaceflight experience comprises a pressurized capsule that is airlifted by a SpaceBalloon.
