Mercedes-Benz EV threatens Tesla with record 1,000 KM on single charge


In the strongest possible competition against the Elon Musk-owned Tesla for the electric car (EV) marketplace, Mercedes-Benz has unveiled its Vision EQXX concept with a long-range car that covered more than 1,000 miles using an fully charged battery the longest-ever distance traveled by an electric vehicle on just one charge.

As per the company’s website the trip from Germany to south France began in weather that was cold and wet, and was completed at normal speed, with extended speed-lane travel at speeds of speeds of up to 140 km/h.

“The battery’s state of charge on arrival was around 15 per cent, amounting to a remaining range of around 140 kms, and the average consumption was a record-breaking low of 8.7 kWh per 100 kms,” the company stated in the statement.

The road profile of the motorway, from mountain passes, which includes roadworks – as well as the weather conditions presented Vision EQXX with an extensive array of tasks.

The company claims that the light conception of VISION The EQXX concept is broad starting with the materials used to ingenuous bionic structures that provide an impressive power-to-weight ratio.

The car uses a sustainable carbon fibre-sugar composite material that is used to make the upper portion of the battery. It is utilized for the rear floor in Formula 1, and the rear floor is made using an aluminum casting process.

The unique design method led to a weight reduction up to 20 percent when compared with a conventionally produced component.

“The EVA is the most efficient Mercedes ever built. The technology programme behind it marks a milestone in the development of electric vehicles. It underpins our strategic aim to a Lead in Electric’,” stated Ola Kallenius chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz Group AG.

Because the electric drivetrain produces minimal waste heat because of its efficiency passive cooling, it is enough for the entire journey, said the automaker.

The aerodynamically high-efficiency solution improves the distance by 20kms.

Its VISION EQXX has proven without doubt the potential in real-world applications of exceptional effectiveness for electric vehicles.” stated the company.

The Mercedes-Benz EV poses a tough competition to the other electric luxury sedans like those like the Porsche Taycan, Audi E-tron GT and the forthcoming Tesla Roadster.

The automaker intends to be completely electric by 2030. making a commitment to have 50% of its sales to include plug-in hybrids and electric vehicles in 2025.

Mercedes lineup will feature nine models at the close of the year, including electric versions of its E-Class as well as B-Class models.

In a direct opposition of the Elon Musk-owned Tesla for the electric car (EV) sector, Mercedes-Benz has unveiled its Vision EQXX, a long-range vehicle that traveled over 1,000 kilometers using fully charged batteries -the longest distance ever covered by an electric vehicle on just one charge.

In the words of the carmaker the trip from Germany to south France was a the rain and cold conditions and was completed at normal speed, with extended rapid-lane cruising of speeds of up to 140 km/h.

“The battery’s state of charge on arrival was around 15 per cent, amounting to a remaining range of around 140 kms, and the average consumption was a record-breaking low of 8.7 kWh per 100 kms,” the company stated in an announcement.

The profile of the route from motorway through mountain passes with roadworks – as well as the weather conditions provided the Vision EQXX with numerous issues.

The company claims that the light concept of the VISION The EQXX concept is broad that extends from the material used to the innovative bionic structures that provide an excellent power-to-weight ratio.

The car uses a sustainable carbon fibre-sugar composite material that is used to make the upper portion of the battery. This material is also utilized for the rear floor in Formula 1, and the rear floor is manufactured by an aluminum casting process.

The unique design method resulted in weight savings of as much as 20 percent in comparison to a traditional component.

“The EVA is the most efficient Mercedes ever built. The technology programme behind it marks a milestone in the development of electric vehicles. It underpins our strategic aim to a Lead in Electric’,” stated Ola Kallenius chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz Group AG.

Since the electric drivetrain creates very little waste heat due to its efficiency the passive cooling system is adequate all the way, according to the automaker.

The aerodynamically efficient solution extends the range by 20 kilometers.

Its VISION EQXX has proven without doubt the actual potential of amazing effectiveness for electric vehicles.” stated the company.
