Mercedes will only unveil the prototype today. There is no confirmation if and when the EQXX will go into production.
According to Mercedes Benz, the Vision EQXX ‘is a testament to our goals to Lead in Electric and Lead in Car Software’. The energy density of its battery will be 20% higher than that of the Mercedes-Benz EQS, according to Daimler. The Mercedes-AMG division is also involved in this project.
The teaser images released by the German auto giant suggest that EQXX concept electric car will come with a design that boasts of clean shapes and in which aerodynamics will play a fundamental role. The image of the front that has been shown also suggests that the EQXX will have a retro aesthetic, something that, however, remains to be confirmed.
The only data that Mercedes-Benz has provided about the Vision EQXX is its range, which they say will exceed 1,000 kilometres between charges. With this prototype, the star's signature wants to set a reference consumption that drops below the 10 kilowatt-hour barrier on the highway. The EQS consumes a minimum of 16 kilowatt hours on a combined cycle.
Today, the most capable electric Mercedes-Benz is the EQS, which is capable of covering 770 kilometres between charges. The EQXX will go one step further.It is not yet known what capacity its battery will have or what motor scheme it will adopt.
