The Mercedes-Benz EQXX Concept Just Completed A 1000-km Dash In Real-World Conditions On A Single Charge!

Here’s proof that the three-pointed star is still a pioneer when it comes to future technologies; proves that range anxiety could soon become a thing of the past

Mercedes Benz completed a 1000 km or 620 mile dash across Europe on a single charge

Their route took from them from their base in Sindelfingen in Germany, through the Swiss Alps, down through Italy and finally onto the French Riviera

When Mercedes first unveiled the Concept EXQQ at CES in Las Vegas, back in Jan, they range figures that they claimed were truly impressive

But now, the German automaker has gone ahead and actually proved it

The 100kWh battery is in fact comparable to that on the EQS sedan, but in the EQXX, it is 50% smaller and 30% lighter

You have some pretty intelligent tech on how the clever battery pack works in order to maximize range in realtime

The cd value of the coefficient of drag is also incredibly low at just 0.17 and stuff like an active diffuser is deployed at speeds above 37 mph

Before the team left for France, the charge port was sealed

A team would monitor the EQXX performance on its way to the Côte d'Azur

And with that it was go time, heading south towards the Swiss border on the Autobahn

En route, the Mercedes EQXX encountered a variety of roads, and conditions, gradient changes etc, to simulate real-life situations

It also encountered traffic, up in the hills

The convoy then headed down towards Italy

Before arriving in the Port town of Cassis near Marseille 12 hours later. Consumption was also low at just 8.7 kWh/62 miles, lesser than Mercedes claimed 10 kWh/62 miles

That is 1008 km or 626 miles. On arrival the team discovered that there was still 15% charge left in the battery, enough for another 87 miles

The EQXX is obviously only a concept, but this latest achievement by Mercedes proves that it continues to be a pioneer in developing future technologies

Owing to this, range anxiety could soon become a thing of the past, as this innovative tech makes it to production models. Swipe up to read more.
