The battery pack, quite obviously, will be at the core of this concept and it will get a unit that could have 20% boost in energy density over the battery already inside the recently-launched EQS.

As per teaser images shared by Mercedes-Benz, the EQXX concept will be a sedan with a low-ish profile. Its exterior design clearly has a whole lot of curves, a possible way of making it more efficient when on the move.

Mercedes may have already been gunning at Tesla dominance in EV space for some time now but with a focus on range enhancement, it is firing at the very top. The Tesla Roadster claims to have a range of around 997 kms, while the upcoming Cybertruck brags of a per-charge stamina in excess of 800 kms.
