Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the EQXX electric car concept that consumes 10kW/h of energy per 100 km. According to the carmaker, the car traveled over 1,000 km on a fully charged battery, which is the longest distance covered by an EV on a single charge so far. The car traveled from Sindelfingen, a city in the south of Germany, to the city of Cassis on the Cote d’Azur, France.
Revealing more details, Mercedes-Benz said that the ride was done at regular road speeds, including a 140 km/h long cruise on the German Autobahn, and various weather conditions such as cold and rainy conditions. Mercedes-Benz’s official tweet reveals, “95% of the power from the battery is dissipated at the wheels. Achieving this efficiency milestone, the battery holds approximately 100 kWh of energy with a voltage of >900 V.”

According to the company, the battery condition upon arrival was about 15 percent, “equivalent to a remaining range of about 140 kilometers”. Average consumption, as claimed by the company, was a record breaking 8.7 kWh per 100 kms.
It was back in January CES 2022, when Mercedes-Benz announced to showcase its Vision EQ1000 concept car, which offers a range of 1,000 km on a single charge. In this car, the company has managed to achieve this by using the same size battery as the EQS, that too in a smaller sedan.

The Vision EQXX concept uses a new modular EV architecture, which can also be used in the A-Class. With this, the company has managed to keep the weight of the car at just 1,750 kg. Also in a range of 25 km, the Vision EQ25 comes with solar panels on its roof. However, in order to provide this huge range, Mercedes-Benz compromised on performance, with the Vision EQX having only 201 bhp, thus making it slower than the EQS.
Coming to the internals, the Vision EQXX comes with a new Hyper Screen, which is a 47.5-inch 8K OLED panel with local area dimming, a 3D mapping system and more.
