Mercedes has unveiled more teasers for the Vision EQXX, an electric car “with a range of more than 1,000 kilometers”. It seems that an extremely economical car will not be a prototype freak, but will give rise to a product available to a wider audience.

Mercedes EQXX will turn into Mercedes EQD? New C-Class EQ?

According to Mercedes’ announcement, the EQXX is to be “the most efficient electric vehicle”. This is quite a bold statement, taking into account Lucid’s achievements, various electric vehicle competitions in which teams from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU Eindhoven, the Netherlands) regularly win, or the Lightyear One model developed by these people.

But Mercedes promises don’t end here. EQXX is at the forefront of the program under which the manufacturer would like to “develop a compact electric car that can travel in real conditions 1,000 kilometers on a single charge“. The microscopic energy consumption that would be expressed is to help in this single-digit kilowatt hours per 100 kilometers at “normal highway speeds”.

The Mercedes Vision EQXX is to be equipped with a battery based on cells with an energy density 20 percent higher than that in the EQS. Twenty percent does not sound like a breakthrough, but it is worth remembering that the EQS was probably equipped with top-shelf cells. A jump by 20 percent during the year is a gigantic achievement in the Li-ion cell industry. In recent decades, it took 5-10 years to increase the capacity by this amount.

Vision EQXX will be unveiled on January 3, possibly at CES 2022 in Las Vegas.

Note from the editors of www.elektrowoz.pl: there were voices in the German press that Mercedes had a huge problem with contracting the appropriate number of cells. The company clearly learned from its failure as it began to fight for the lowest possible energy consumption. This can already be seen in the Mercedes EQS, whose drag coefficient Cx with the appropriate rims is 0.20.
