The all-new VISION EQXX by Mercedes-EQ Concept
VISION EQXX Sedan by Mercedes-EQ Concept
Breaking rules to break records.
We’re taking premium electric architecture to a whole new level, surpassing what was once impossible. Together with the Formula 1 experts at Mercedes-AMG High Performance Powertrains, we set out to break barriers — and in doing so, achieved unparalleled efficiency in the all-electric VISION EQXX concept vehicle.
From the onset, our design focus aimed for minimal environmental impact. The simplest solution for greater efficiency would be to build a larger battery — but we were not about to take the easy route. Instead, we developed the fundamentals of the VISION EQXX from scratch, pushing for unthinkably lightweight, hyper-efficient components. We achieved an energy-dense battery that’s 30% lighter and sized 50% smaller with an electric drive unit that brings 95% of the energy to the wheels.Disclaimer Further refinements from our aerodynamicists allowed us to drop the drag co-efficient to an unimaginable cd 0.17.Disclaimer Disclaimer We took this machine out for a spin in the real world and the results were mind-blowing. From Sindelfingen, Germany, to Cassis in the South of France, the VISION EQXX traveled over 11 hours and 32 minutes for 626 miles and ended the journey with 87 miles of range to spare — all on a single charge.Disclaimer Disclaimer With numbers like that, this vehicle has the potential to become the silver bullet to the electric road trip, capable of traveling great distances in one charge. Day-to-day, the average U.S. driver may need to fully recharge just twice a month.Disclaimer Disclaimer
Streamlining this vehicle goes beyond what’s under the hood. We added 117 solar panels to feed the 12-volt battery, powering numerous functions inside. Interior materials were influenced by nature and made with animal-free textiles — like cactus fibers, mushrooms and vegan silk — that provide a luxurious finish from upholstery to door handles.
The VISION EQXX is more than efficient, it underpins our commitment to lead in electric. True to its heritage, this Mercedes presents modern luxury, advanced tech and superior comfort. It demonstrates our transformation toward software-driven design with tech developments. Silver, rose-gold and gloss black accents reveal a progressive interpretation of modern luxury. And just 18 months in the making, we acheived
The extent of skills behind this vehicle are expressed in the XX of its name: it is the X-factor across an agile X-divisional collaboration. The VISION EQXX made its digital world premiere in January 2022 and represents a blueprint for the future of electromobility.
