Mercedes-Benz has just unveiled a prototype of the VISION EQXX electric vehicle which is said to have a range of over 1,000 km (621 miles) on a single full charge.
The VISION EQXX, dubbed Mercedes-Benz's most efficient electric vehicle ever made, will have energy consumption of less than 10 kilowatt hours (kWh) per 100 km, Daimler said.
Daimler will pilot test the VISION EQXX prototype before mid-year in a variety of terrain types, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Markus Schaefer told reporters Monday.
The VISION EQXX, dubbed Mercedes-Benz as the most efficient electric vehicle ever made and has an energy consumption of less than 10 kilowatt hours (kWh) per 100 km.
To note, based on data from its website, the Tesla Model S 60 currently consumes 18.1 kWh at the same distance.
“The Mercedes-Benz VISION EQXX is how we envision the future of electric cars,” said Mercedes-Benz CEO Ola Kaellenius.
Some components will be available in Mercedes-Benz vehicles in two to three years, Schaefer said. However, when the 1000 km battery will be ready to be marketed, Schaefer refused to explain further.
“We will likely be the first to demonstrate a 1000 km range car in real life, with such a small battery,” said Schaefer.
