Mercedes-Benz VISION EQXX Shows How Capable Electric Cars Can Really Be
When Mercedes announced the Vision EQXX back in January 2022 it boasted a range of 620 miles. People were of course skeptical, so the car had to prove itself - something it did in April 2022 when it completed a 1,008-kilometer (626 miles) road trip across European highways on a single charge. And, if you need more proof that the Vision EQXX is a very efficient car, Mercedes has just announced the concept broke its own record with another trip of 1,202 kilometers.
2022 Mercedes EQC 400 Review - The Electric SUV With Hidden Character
Among the big automotive brands, Mercedes has one of the most comprehensive EV lineups currently on the market. The Mercedes EQC was introduced back in 2019 and is the first Mercedes EV. Recently, we got to drive the Mercedes EQC 400, which at this point in time, is the only available version of the compact luxury SUV. The EQC is the founder of the Mercedes’ all-electric, EQ lineup and these are our impressions.
2022 Mercedes EQS 580 4MATIC Review: Tech Laden and Eager to Please
The barrage of electric cars has only just begun and my internal voltmeter is pinned to the right. I love this progression of the automobile and the way it’s transforming the driving experience, and the EQS is as transformative as they come.
As of today, Mercedes offers one EV in the U.S. market, and this is it - the EQS Sedan, with a starting price of $103,360 (including destination.) This commences MB’s top-down approach to fleshing out their electric offerings; soon to be joined by an SUV of the same name, an E-Class-like midsize sedan called the EQE, and a more attainable compact SUV called the EQB (not to mention a pair of racy AMG variants.) The goal is to make every newly-developed Mercedes electric-only starting in 2025, while at the same time having an EV alternative for every model the company makes. If it has an EQ in front of its alphanumeric name it’s electric.
Top 10 EVs With The Longest Range In 2022
EVs have dawned upon us and have become competent mainstream alternatives to cars with internal combustion engines in the last few years. While their performance was never in doubt, available range has led to some pretty extreme anxiety. The range was one of the major reasons why most folks were skeptical about switching to green cars. But, things are quite different now. Technology is getting better every single day and automakers are able to improve the range of cars like never before. Gone are the days when achieving even 400 miles of range was a distant dream. Today, cars like Lucid Air offer more than 500 miles of range and Tesla more than 400 miles. Concept cars like the Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX claim to offer over 600 miles of range. It won’t be too long before that becomes a reality, too. For now, here is a list of EVs that offer the best range in 2022.
2022 Mercedes EQS 580 Test Drive: The Definition of Luxury, Electrified
The Mercedes EQS is already on sale as the brand’s EV equivalent to the Mercedes S-Class. The EQS is currently being offered in five different flavors, two of which are AMG variants. Power ranges from 288 horsepower in the base EQS 350 to 761 horsepower in the AMG EQS 53. We recently got the chance to drive the Mercedes EQS 580, which is the most powerful version of the EQS before you step up to the AMG models. I’m here to tell you that it’s better that you’d expect.
This Mercedes Vision AMG Concept is the Future of German High Performance

Tug-of-War: Does The AMG G63 Come Out On Top, Or Does It Succumb To The BMW X7 And iX?
The ‘Carwow’ team, spearheaded by Mat Watson, staged a tug-of-war between three SUVs that belong to different segments. One is a new EV, the other, its sibling, a luxurious family SUV, and the final one, an iconic off-roader. We are talking about the BMW iX, the BMW X7, and the Mercedes-AMG G63. Since this is a tug-of-war, you’d expect the G63 to be the winner, since it comes with a lot of tech and equipment that has to do with traction and stability. But, is that really the case?
The Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV Debuts With A 373-Mile Range, A 56-inch Hyperscreen, And 500+ Horsepower AWD Version!
Mercedes-Benz has taken to electrification like no other automaker. Audi come a close second, but Mercedes is operating on a whole different level. The German marque has made sure it has offerings in every mass-market segment in the shortest time possible. Sometime last year, the automaker revealed five new vehicles in one auto show – the EQE sedan, the EQB crossover, the EQG Concept, the Maybach EQS SUV, and the AMG EQS.. Then Mercedes followed it up with the Vision EQXX Concept
Without taking a break whatsoever, the automaker has now come up with the EQS SUV (the non-Maybach version). As the name suggests, it is the SUV version of the EQS sedan. It shares the same wheelbase, but is more spacious and comes with better cargo capacity. It will be offered in two trims – 450+ and 580 4MATIC – the latter being a 536-horsepower, all-wheel-drive version. With a range of up to 373 miles and a 56-inch Hyperscreen on offer, the Mercedes EQS might be an electric SUV that you can’t ignore!

You Saw It Here First: Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV Leaked Online

Let’s try and break down the design of what is about to become the range-topper of Mercedes’ EQ lineup.
Mercedes Executive Fears EVs Could Remain Expensive For the Foreseeable Future
It’s no secret that you have to pay for the latest and greatest technology, but over time, the latest and greatest becomes cheaper as it becomes more readily available. As the tech spreads across the global market, the cost of material and manufacturing begins to lower, and that reduction in cost ultimately passes down to consumers like you and I. This is already happening with electric vehicles to some extent with cars like the Nissan Leaf – a car that was once quite pricey – now available for less than $30,000 in some markets, which makes it the cheapest EV that you can buy today.
2023 Mercedes-AMG EQE
Times are definitely changing, and that includes how we view what a high-performance German luxury sedan should be. In the past, that would mean a big-displacement V-8 or even a V-10, and now we come at a time when silence doesn’t just mean a yes, but also breathtaking speed. This new Mercedes-AMG EQE is no exception, and it’s essentially a Mercedes-AMG E 53 and E 63 for the future.

2021 Project Maybach Is Virgil Abloh’s Last Collaboration With Mercedes
For those of you out there with a passion for fashion, Virgil Abloh (1980-2021) needs no presentation. Among others, he was the artistic director of Louis Vuitton’s menswear collection beginning 2018 and showed great interest in art and music too.
