mercedes-benz unveils VISION EQXX, its most efficient electric vehicle yet


VISION EQXX: mercedes-benz goes further with less

 

the team at mercedes-benz today unveiled its VISION EQXX, celebrating its most efficient electric vehicle yet. the news marks an exciting leap forward toward better range for the electric era — the car can reach 620 miles on one charge while avoiding the introduction of a bigger and heavier battery. this means that the vehicle can travel even further with less.

 

with its VISION EQXX, the mercedes-benz aimed toward zero impact on the planet and a highly responsible use of green energy. the team of engineers worked hard to take range and efficiency to a whole new level, and to demonstrate the gains that are possible through rethinking the fundamentals from the ground up. this includes advances across all elements of its electric drivetrain as well as the use of lightweight engineering and sustainable materials.

the sustainable design principles

 

guided by the principle of efficiency, mercedes-benz (see more here) packs its VISION EQXX with improvements that push the envelope with a mixture of advanced technology and talented teamwork. the outcome is a road-legal research prototype that delivers more range from less energy, more tangible luxury and convenience with less impact on nature, and more electric mobility with less waste. a raft of digital tools and a software-led approach also delivered more car in less time.

the main points

 

efficiency engineering achievements delivered an energy consumption of less than 10 kwh per 100 km (efficiency of more than 6 miles per kwh). meanwhile, a radical new system designed and built in-house achieves benchmark efficiency of 95% from battery to wheels. with expert engineering and formula 1 thinking, the team’s battery chemists squeezed the energy of its EQS into the dimensions of a compact car. the battery pack in the VISION EQXX holds almost 100 kwh of energy, while maintaining 50% less volume and is 30% lighter than the already benchmark pack in EQS.

ola källenius, chairman of the board of management of daimler AG and mercedes-benz AG comments:the mercedes-benz VISION EQXX is how we imagine the future of electric cars. just one-and-a-half years ago, we started this project leading to the most efficient mercedes-benz ever built — with an outstanding energy consumption of less than 10 kwh per 100 kilometres.

 

it has a range of more than 1,000 kilometres on a single charge using a battery that would fit even into a compact vehicle. the VISION EQXX is an advanced car in so many dimensions — and it even looks stunning and futuristic. with that, it underlines where our entire company is headed: we will build the world’s most desirable electric cars.’
