      What is the VISION EQXX? The VISION EQXX is an experimental car, created to achieve unparalleled electric energy efficiency, encompassing modern luxury with advanced technology and aerodynamics. It is Mercedes-Benz’s blueprint for the future of electromobility.
        Drive purely electric. Experience pure driving pleasure in two senses with an all-electric vehicle, without local carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxide emissions. Take another step towards CO2-neutral balance-sheet mobility with a clear conscience. Button
        A new kind of driving pleasure. Driving electrically means a completely new driving experience: dynamic and almost silent. Even from a stationary start, an almost full range of torque is available for dynamic acceleration. Button
        Charge whenever you want. You can charge an electric vehicle easily and conveniently at home, and save yourself a trip to a filling station. And if you do need to charge while on the road, simply use one of the many public charging stations, for example, in the city, at shopping centres or service stations. Intelligent route guidance can plan your route, including the necessary charging stops. Button
        Intelligently networked energy recovery. Adaptive driving saves power and extends the range: ECO Assist offers optimum recuperation for the given situation by incorporating navigation data, traffic sign recognition and information from the sensors into its efficiency strategy. Button
        Range for everyday needs with no compromises. The high-voltage batteries installed in Mercedes-Benz models are so generously sized that their electric range can cover many everyday routes and also the journey to and from work with ease for many users. Button
        Mercedes-Benz charging solutions. The Mercedes me Charge service[1]makes charging on the go even easier, as you can charge comfortably with just one charging contract in a charging network with over 500,000 charging stations across Europe.

        [1] To be able to use the Mercedes me connect service "Mercedes me Charge", a separate charging contract is required with a selected third-party provider, via which payment and invoicing of the charging processes takes place. The use of Mercedes me connect services requires a personal Mercedes me ID and agreement to the terms of use for Mercedes me connect services.

        Previous challenges

        The VISION EQXX completed its first a long-distance trip on open roads in Europe, in April 2022. A second trip, over 1,000 km, followed in June 2022, through different countries and varying driving conditions.


        Challenge 3 accepted: Riyadh to Dubai

        The third challenge on the 8th March 2024 was a trip from Riyadh to Dubai across the harsh Arabian desert, on a single charge – pushing the boundaries for even greater energy efficiency.

        Watch the video:

        ​The Route

        This challenging route covered lengthy desert highway sections and busy streets with heavy traffic. It was a chance to test technology such as thermal management and the solar roof.

        The VISION EQXX came through

        On its third long-distance road trip, the VISION EQXX showed that even the Arabian Desert is no obstacle to energy efficiency, finishing at 7.4 kWh/100 km2 in 14 hrs 42 mins, and it still had 309 km (192 mi) of range left when it arrived in Dubai. In temperatures of up to 34˚ Celsius (93˚ F), the VISION EQXX beat its own previous efficiency by a considerable margin.

        ​The future of solar roof cars

        The relentless desert sun gave engineers the chance to test the solar roof, which harvested 1.8 kWh to power many secondary systems – reducing overall energy use and adding around 24 km to the range. They also tested the effects of the temperature, wind and sunlight angle.

        Teamwork

        One of the most important factors in the efficiency of any vehicle is the person behind the wheel. To maximise energy efficiency, the VISION EQXX’s expert drivers took full advantage of the car’s intelligent efficiency assistant. It takes a wide range of information and suggests the most efficient driving style in real time. 

        The VISION EQXX in detail:

        ​Light battery, less environmental impact

        The design focus was on minimal environmental impact. The simplest solution for greater efficiency is a larger battery – but instead of taking the easy route, the VISION EQXX was conceived to have unthinkably lightweight, hyper-efficient components. The result is an energy-dense battery that’s 30% lighter and 50% smaller. It also slips through the air with incredible ease, thanks to an extraordinary Cd (drag coefficient) of just 0.17.

        A new level of digital luxury

        The VISION EQXX is more than efficient. It’s also designed to be very, very cool. Silver, rose-gold and gloss black accents interpret progressive modern luxury. A rooftop solar panel powers some of the car’s secondary systems. Interior materials are influenced by nature, and made with animal-free textiles. While on the striking one-piece display, a game engine elevates the UI (user-interface) graphics to a new level of digital luxury, reacting immediately and intuitively to the driver’s needs. 

        ​An electric blueprint

        The VISION EQXX is Mercedes-Benz’s blueprint for the future of electromobility. True to its Mercedes-Benz heritage, it combines modern luxury, advanced technology and superior comfort, demonstrating the future capability to journeying great distances on a single charge.

        An electric global ambassador

        More than two years after it was unveiled, the VISION EQXX remains an eye-catching crowd puller. During that time, it has covered 23,340 km (14,503 m) testing its pioneering electric technology under a wide range of demanding real-life conditions.

        The sophisticated low-drag fastback design makes it a highly desirable ambassador for electric mobility. And with charging infrastructure still sparse in many parts of the world, it demonstrates long-range electric efficiency under real-life conditions.
