Mercedes-Benz has been slowly expanding their range of electric "EQ" vehicles since the 2016 release of the Generation EQ concept. We've seen numerous EQ vehicles launched since then, the most notable including the EQC and EQS sedan. Today, Mercedes adds yet another EQ vehicle to their lineup: the EQXX.

What makes the EQXX not just another electric car is its significant 620-mile range, delivered from a 200-horsepower single motor. Mercedes claims that the average American driver would only need to charge their EQXX twice a month. This is achieved through aerodynamic and engineering trickery. Its efficient powertrain delivers 95% of its power to the wheels; that's a huge figure! Another trick up its sleeve is a roof-mounted solar panel that is responsible for delivering power to vital systems, like the electrics, blower for the HVAC system, lights, and infotainment. A separate lithium-iron-phosphate battery stores extra energy. In total, this can supply an extra 15.5 miles in ideal conditions.

Other aspects that assist the EQXX in its 620-mile range is its design. With a mere 0.18 drag coefficient, it is incredibly slippery. Its gradual roofline and sloped fenders further emphasize its advanced bodywork. Altogether, the EQXX can travel six miles on merely 1.0 kWh of electrical energy, equivalent to 202 mpg!

Inside is where you'll find a full-width, pillar-to-pillar, 47.5-inch infotainment screen. Did I mention it has an 8K resolution? Mercedes is also working in collaboration with NAVIS Automotive Systems to create “the first realtime 3D navigation system” on a screen of this caliber. Inside is also home to sustainable materials such as mushrooms to bamboo, cactus and "vegan silk", used to cut down in carbon emissions.

Mercedes has not specified whether or not the EQXX will enter production, but its technological advancements will pave the way for new, production ready EQ models in the coming years.

  • Not my cup of tea. They took a lot from Porsche and McLaren

    • Agree, this is way too much just a speedtail and a taycan mashed together (and the speedtail was already questionable to many).

      What are BMW & Merc designers doing lately?

  • Stunner! I'm seeing a lot of Silver Arrow vibes in the design. And with a 620-mile range, if it can be charged quickly, this will be a real game changer.

    • Agreed, although these specs are theoretical (and we know how theoretical specs don’t always translate well to real world application)

    • Funny how on the day Theranos CEO is found guilty of the ‘Fake it until you Make it’ corporate BS (sorry - PR), on the other hand we have a well respected company doing pretty much the same thing, but under the guise of ‘concept car’! Now I have no...

    • It would, but who wants a 3,800-pound, 200-hp two door?

  • I actually quite like the look of the eqc, there are quite a few on London roads, but if I was given the money and told to go buy an electric car now I’d probably go get a Polestar 2. As for the concept, meh. Looks nice but let’s wait to see what makes it to the road. Anyone can draw a pretty picture.

  • Looks pretty cool. Gives me xl1 vibes, maybe a little Kia EV6. Some impressive tech too
