The Mercedes Vision EQXX completes its 1,000 km journey

  • Mercedes Vision EQXX: features and more details
  • Here’s how Mercedes wants to be an all-electric brand in 2030

    Even before it is officially revealed with the start of this 2022, Mercedes has already presented the Mercedes Vision EQXX as the electric car capable of traveling 1,000 km on a single charge. A model born as the German brand’s new halo car, the best demonstration of what Mercedes technology and capabilities are capable of in an electric car.

    The truth is that the figure sounded too good, but since saying it is not the same as doing it, now, a few months after its presentation, Mercedes has shown that indeed this Mercedes Vision EQXX lives up to its promises after covering much of Europe by 1,008 km on a single charge. In addition, the electric vehicle arrived at its destination still with a battery capacity of 15% which would theoretically have allowed it to travel another 140 km.

    More than 1,000 km traveled on open roads

    In order to demonstrate that the slogan “1,000 km of electric car” is real, Mercedes conducted its travel on real, busy roads across half of Europe, starting at the Mercedes-Benz factory in Sindelfingen and crossing the Swiss Alps and northern Italy to Cassis in southern France. A long journey that started with cold and rainy conditions and developed into driving at normal speeds on various roads, going from 140 km/h on a German autobahn to speeds close to the speed limit on other roads he’s been on, not just highways. , but also to mountain passes.

    Thus, the Vision EQXX managed to cover these 1,008 km in approximately 11 hours and 32 minutes, recording a Record power consumption of only 8.7 kWh per 100 kmsomething really spectacular if you think that a Mercedes EQS has a consumption of 18.6 kWh per 100 km.

    “The longest road trip since the birth of electric mobility”

    Of course, the ultra-aerodynamic bodywork of this electric Gran Turismo has a lot to do with it, which translates into absurdity. drag coefficient of only 0.17 Cd, unheard of on a road vehiclebut also other technologies aimed at increasing the vehicle’s efficiency, such as its low rolling resistance tires developed by Bridgestone or the lightweight materials used in the construction of the vehicle, as well as a generator set that offers 95% efficiency upon delivery of the battery to the wheels. A battery also 50% more compact and 30% lighter than that used for example in a Mercedes EQS despite having the same ability. Some members of the international press have already been able to prove all this first hand during a test in Nice on which our colleagues from Car and Driver USA have already left their own impressions on this Mercedes Vision EQXX.
