Mercedes-Benz is teasing its next new super efficient electric car which the automaker claims will have over 1,000 km (620 miles) of range.
It’s actually a shorter range than previously advertised.
Today Mercedes-Benz announced an updated electrification plan that included a new plan to go all-electric by 2030.
The German automaker has announced several new programs to help achieve this goal.
One of them is the Mercedes-Benz VISION EQXX, a new ultra-efficient all-electric.
It was first announced last year, and at the time, the automaker was talking about a range of over 750 miles (1,200 km).
In today’s update, Mercedes-Benz says it will have more 1000 km (620 miles) of range “in the real world”.
The automaker has released just one new teaser image for the efficient new electric vehicle:
Mercedes-Benz has released some more details about the VISION EQXX in a press release:
VISION EQXX: Mercedes-Benz is developing the Vision EQXX, an electric car with a real range of over 1,000 kilometers, aiming for a single digit figure for Kwh per 100 kilometers (over 6 miles per Kwh) in normal driving on the highway. speeds. A multidisciplinary team comprising experts from Mercedes-Benz’s F1 High Performance Powertrain (HPP) division is making rapid progress towards the ambitious goals of the project. The world premiere will take place in 2022.
While it doesn’t appear that the automaker is planning to release a production version of the vehicle, it has confirmed that it will use it as a platform to develop its new electrical architectures:
“Technological advancements made with Vision EQXX will be adapted and applied for potential use in new electrical architectures. “
Mercedes-Benz has announced the development of three new electric platforms that will be released in 2025 and will power several new electric vehicles for the brand.
While I’m not a huge fan of non-production concept vehicles, I like to see mainstream automakers place a clear emphasis on efficiency.
For years Tesla clearly had a lead on this front, but some are starting to catch up, and efforts like this and Audi’s Artemis program are good examples.
I would still like to see more.
