Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX will be the Most Efficient Mercedes EV Ever

Mercedes will unveil it most efficient electric car ever, in concept form

  • The concept will be unveiled on January 3 at the CES

  • It will have a highway energy consumption of less than 10 kWh/100 kilometers

  • This should translate into a range of more than 1,000 kilometers (621 miles)

Mercedes-Benz will present a new concept car at the consumer electronics show in Las Vegas on January 3rd.

This vehicle will be the most efficient electric car ever to wear the three-pointed star, with a targeted energy consumption of less than 10 kilowatt-hour per 100 kilometers (62 miles) on the highway.

This efficiency will give a total range of more than 1,000 kilometers (621 miles).

This is only a concept, but Mercedes says it is working on a compact electric vehicle that will also be able to drive for more than 1,000 kilometers on a single charge, which is over 100 kilometers more than the current longest range in a production EV.

This production version would be even more efficient than the EQXX concept since it should be able to achieve single digit kilowatt-hour per 100 kilometers of highway driving.

This is important because the most efficient electric vehicle currently on sale, the rear-wheel drive Tesla Model 3, has an average consumption of 14 kWh per 100 km on the highway.

The EQXX will play a large part in Mercedes’ efforts to achieve this high efficiency, since the concept car is an interdisciplinary technology program, meaning that many different teams are working on every aspect of the vehicle to achieve this goal, notably the AMG high performance powertrains division.

In order to achieve such high efficiency, aerodynamics are obviously very important and Mercedes-Benz set the target for the EQXX to beat the 0.20 drag coefficient of the EQS, the lowest ever recorded for a production car.
