Some weeks ago, we teased the EQXX and said it will be unveiled on January 3rd 2022, that day is here and a new benchmark in EV technology has been born. This car was made with the intent that Mercedes is ready to go full EV (by 2030) and therefore showcase tier capabilities.
The EQXX’s impressive efficiency allows it to cover over 621 miles (1,000 kilometres) on a charge. This would be enough to go from Berlin, Germany, to Paris, France, without needing to plug in the sedan. Mercedes claims the average American driver would only need to recharge the vehicle twice a month.
Mercedes isn’t disclosing the capacity of the EQXX’s battery beyond saying that the figure is less than 100 kilowatt-hours. The company touts a few impressive details about the pack, though. It has 50 percent less volume and is 30 percent lighter than the one in the EQS. The maximum system voltage is 900 volts. The battery and the frame that carries it weighs around 1,091 pounds (495 kilograms). The EQXX boasts a lightweight bionic structure, an extremely aerodynamic exterior, and a smart thermal management system. All of these details add up to create the most efficient EV ever.
