Mercedes-Benz unveils EQXX electric sedan with 1,000 km range
The car is built on the MMA platform (Mercedes-Benz Modular Architecture) and received one electric motor with a capacity of 204 horsepower.
Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the EQXX concept electric sedan. In the company itself, the novelty is called “the most spectacular car of the brand.” At the same time, the Germans do not plan to launch the car in a series. However, many of the technologies and solutions demonstrated on the prototype will be implemented on commercial Mercedes-Benz vehicles in the future.
The novelty is a further development of the experimental model Concept IAA (Intelligent Aerodynamic Automobile), presented in 2015 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. A distinctive feature of the car was the extremely low coefficient of drag against the oncoming air flow. This figure is 0.18 (the flagship electric car EQS has a coefficient of 0.20, which is an absolute record among mass-produced cars).
The length of the novelty is 4.63 meters. The car is built on the MMA platform (Mercedes-Benz Modular Architecture) and received one electric motor with a capacity of 204 horsepower. On a single charge, the Mercedes Vision EQXX will be able to travel more than 1,000 kilometers. For comparison, the battery stock of the serial EQS model, depending on the modification, is enough for 400-660 km of run without recharging.
The electric car was equipped with an aerodynamic body and solar panels, which can add up to 25 kilometers to the total range. In the cabin of the EQXX, a huge 47.5-inch display with a resolution of 8k was installed. Recycled materials and various plant materials (for example6 cactus and bamboo) were used in the interior trim.
At the moment, the Mercedes-Benz lineup includes the serial EQC electric crossover, the EQV minivan, as well as the EQS and EQE sedans. Depending on the model and modification, the range of cars varies from 400 to 660 km. Previously, the company said that by 2025 the lineup will include up to ten cars with all-electric propulsion systems.
