Mercedes-Benz revealed its Vision EQXX concept car. According to the manufacturer, it is the most efficient car that Mercedes has produced to date. The automaker claims the car can reach a range of 1,000 km based on its own tests.
Presenting the Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX At the CES Electronics Show. During that show, the manufacturer reported that the electric concept car delivers 150 kW of power, which translates to roughly 201 horsepower. According to the automaker, the car can reach a range of 1,000 km on a single battery charge. According to Mercedes, this estimated range is shown by a “simulation of realistic traffic conditions”. However, the car has not yet undergone an independent test procedure such as the WLTP.
The automaker claims it is “the most efficient car Mercedes has ever produced”, with an energy consumption of less than 10 kWh per 100 km and a total battery capacity of “nearly 100 kWh”. According to Mercedes, this battery has 50 percent less volume and 30 percent less mass than the current Mercedes-Benz EQS battery.
Mercedes itself claims to have achieved this range by focusing on “maximizing efficiency”, in collaboration with the Mercedes-AMG Formula 1 and Formula E divisions. The car weighs in total about 1,750 kg, according to the manufacturer. The company is also equipping the concept car’s roof with thin film solar cells that, according to Mercedes-Benz, can contribute to a range of up to 25 kilometers under ideal conditions. In the interior of the Vision EQXX there is a single 47.5-inch display that covers the entire width of the vehicle.
Since it is a concept car, the manufacturer has no plans to commercialize the Vision EQXX. Technologies from the concept car will be used in the future in other manufacturer cars.
