► The next chapter of EQ
► Low drag
► High, 620mile range
Mercedes EQ range is gradually hitting the road, but it’s already planning the next chapter of its all-electric strategy. During its 2020 strategy meeting, it teased the Vision EQXX, a new concept that’ll be a look forward into the next phase of the EQ brand and the three-pointed star.
Stuttgart says it’ll be pushing the boundaries of range and efficiency, and it’ll even by relying on its UK-based HPP group to do it – the people responsible for the F1 engine.
What about specs?
With that in mind, Mercedes is offering up some truly impressive specs – including a range of around 620 miles. And rather than simply increasing the battery, Mercedes intends to do it with efficiency: the EQXX is aiming for an energy density 20% higher than that of Mercedes’ current electric flagship, the EQS.
What will it look like?
So far, we’ve only got teaser images to go on, but a silhouette hints at a slippery, streamlined vehicle much like previous Benz concepts. Being electric, efficiency will be crucial, and Mercedes engineers have already stated they’re shooting for a lower Cd than the EQS.
We’ll should see the full thing in 2022, though we may get more information at the Munich motor show.
