On Monday 3 January 2022 at 7.00 PM, Mercedes-Benz will unveil the all-electric VISION EQXX in a digital world premiere on the Mercedes me media online platform. The software-defined research prototype is the most efficient vehicle the brand has ever built. It is a statement that underscores not only the innovative strength of Mercedes-Benz, but also its stated aim to “Lead in Electric” and “Lead in Car Software”.
Drive 1,000 kilometres on a single battery charge: the VISION EQXX overcomes previous technological barriers, thanks to its newly developed battery, for example. It can store almost the same amount of energy as the battery of the EQS, although it is 50 percent smaller and 30 percent lighter. With this and numerous other innovations, the research prototype demonstrates how the efficiency and range of electric vehicles can be increased.
The VISION EQXX is part of a far-reaching Mercedes-Benz technology programme aimed at breaking through technological barriers and lifting energy efficiency to new heights. It demonstrates the gains that are possible through rethinking the fundamentals from the ground up. This includes advances across all elements of its cutting-edge electric drivetrain as well as the use of lightweight engineering and sustainable materials. Complete with a barrage of intelligent efficiency measures, including advanced software, VISION EQXX allows Mercedes-Benz to explore new frontiers of efficiency.
Cross-functional development teams brought the VISION EQXX to fruition in record time. Board members Ola Källenius and Markus Schäfer, Chief Design Officer Gorden Wagener and experts from the development teams will describe the pioneering spirit and the exceptional teamwork that made this possible.
