Mercedes EQXX (2022), 1000 km of range without recharging, really?

Thanks to a state-of-the-art battery and a finely designed chassis, the Mercedes EQXX promises more than 1,000 kilometers of range on a single charge. What to convince the refractory of the electric car?

Over 1,000 kilometers of range on a single charge. Incredibly low consumption of just 10 kWh / 100 km. On paper, the amazing numbers announced by the Mercedes EQXX are reminiscent of those, in a 100% thermal genre, of the 2013 Volkswagen XL1 which promised to consume less than a liter of fuel per 100 kilometers. There are even some technical similarities in the approach of these two models: like the Volkswagen, the EQXX adopts a lightweight chassis with aerodynamics optimized as much as possible to reduce drag. With a Cx of only 0.17, it does even better than the frail XL1 (0.189).

Thanks in particular to this elusive stern, the Mercedes EQXX claims a Cx record of 0.17

This cutting-edge aerodynamics obviously contributes to lower fuel consumption. But to get the very impressive figure of 10 kWh / 100 km (for comparison, a large EQS limousine consumes a little more than 20 kWh / 100 km in normal driving), Mercedes has squarely mobilized its specialists from the Formula team. 1 in order to design a powertrain at the absolute avant-garde. Its batteries with a generous capacity of 100 kWh weigh only 495 kilos on the scale, against nearly a tonne for batteries on the current market of this capacity. Equipped with a 204 horsepower electric motor, the EQXX also boasts a phenomenal fuel efficiency of 95%. It weighs a total of 1,750 kg, a figure much lower than that of the usual large electric sedans.

Nice dashboard, isn’t it?

A simple concept car, unfortunately

Unfortunately, this pretty car, whose interior will make geeks dream with its beautiful fully digital dashboard, is for the moment only a concept car (presented at CES 2022 in Las Vegas). Mercedes promises that the technology it embeds will be found in future production models of the brand, but we must hope that it is not too expensive and really capable of developing this performance. Remember that the Volkswagen XL1, a small two-seater limited to 250 units, cost € 111,000, or four times the price of a classic Golf …
