Mercedes-Benz introduced its new electric concept vehicle that can travel 1000 kilometers on a single charge. The German automaker set out a year and a half ago to create its most efficient vehicle ever. As a result, the Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX model emerged, which eliminated the distance anxiety.
Mercedes says it achieved this success by laying the foundations from scratch. Engineers, on the other hand, used advanced digital tools to reduce weight and waste by removing excess material that 3D printing “supports”.
Mercedes also uses lightweight magnesium jandollarsars, aluminum alloy brake discs and ultra-thin solar roof panels, as well as low-friction tires with optimized aeroamic geometry, to further reduce weight and extend range. The weight of the four-door electric vehicle is 1750 kilograms. For comparison, a Tesla Model S Plaid weighs 2162 kg.
Unfortunately, Mercedes hasn’t given any acceleration or high-speed figures, but maximum power output is rated at around 150 kW. On the other hand, a 117-cell solar panel is positioned on the roof of the EQXX.
The Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX is little more than a concept at this point. Even if the vehicle hasn’t been physically displayed yet, the automaker will certainly start using some of its cutting-edge engineering on some of its vehicles.
