Mercedes teases new electric tech program Vision EQXX
Mercedes-Benz is likely to showcase its latest electric technology program - Vision EQXX - after the German vehicle manufacturer released a new teaser image. Mercedes had announced the Mercedes Vision EQXX, the new electric model for the brand, almost a year ago.
Although Mercedes has been very tightlipped about the details like specifications and final design of a prototype vehicle , the teaser which shows the silhouette of a car in a monochrome image, reveals its design elements a little more. It appears that the front fascia of the Vision EQXX-based EV has certain similarities with the aggressive styling common in the AMG One.

The German carmaker has hinted that the Vision EQXX technology could be presented today during the "Strategy Update". Although nothing is confirmed, it is known that this will be an event focused on electric vehicles.
In addition to the front design of the awaited EV under Vision EQXX, the brand's most recent publication features slim headlamps that are connected by a thin illuminated strip. The EV concept also features a wide lower entrance and a vented hood with the Mercedes logo at the top.
The model also features a curvy body and bulky fenders. In the silhouette of its first teaser one can also notice a considerably sloping roof and distinctive taillights. For Mercedes, this new model is an "exciting step in the development of electric vehicles."
Among the most emphasised attributes of this concept EV is its performance. The EV promises "spectacular" autonomy and efficiency. Officials have suggested that the car could have a range of about 1,207 kms on single charge.
