At the 2020 Mercedes-Benz Strategy Conference, the official revealed that a brand-new prototype car is being developed-Vision EQXX, which will have a longer "endurance range" and higher "power efficiency". A full battery can drive from Beijing to Shanghai, and the battery life is expected to exceed 1,200 kilometers. Other parameters and information have not yet been announced.
However, engineers working on the project said that instead of using larger batteries, improving aerodynamic performance is the key to increasing cruising range and improving powertrain efficiency.
The Mercedes-Benz EQXX is not expected to be put into production intact. On the contrary, the lessons learned in the development process will be applied to Mercedes-Benz's road car research and development. The EQXX is the best embodiment of Mercedes-Benz's electrification technology.
"We set up a group of engineers to take on an extraordinary task. We want to build the world's longest range and the most efficient electric car in history," said Markus Schafer, head of R&D at Mercedes-Benz. "This is a serious project. We are chasing next-generation technologies, and we intend to integrate all technologies into the next-generation series of production vehicles."
At the same time, Mercedes-Benz is about to launch a large-scale pure electric vehicle platform-the EVA platform. The platform will soon release 4 new electric vehicle products, including EQS, EQE, EQS SUV and EQE SUV. The Mercedes-Benz EQ series product lineup will gradually grow, you will Choose?
