2022 Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX Concept Revealed

2022 Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX Concept – As automakers unveiling new EV concepts often put the promises of performance over the range of their vehicles, Mercedes is reversing that concept with the Vision EQXX. The small four-door was revealed in conjunction with the CES technology showcase in Las Vegas. However, Mercedes was absent due to COVID issues. The stated power output is just 201 horsepower. However, the company says that the car was created to offer more than 600 miles (1000 kilometers) of actual driving in just one charge. However, that claim is a bit over the top and has the typical squishiness of a concept car, since it’s not like the range figures that are offered by any EV. It’s not an official number taken from that WLTP test cycle that is used in Europe and it’s not a U.S. EPA range figure rather, what Mercedes calls an outcome that is the result of “digital simulations based in real-life traffic conditions.” The possibility of it beating it to Lucid Air Dream’s impressive 520 miles EPA rating is not clear. The EQXX is a car that looks viable for production, even having the mirrors on the doors that more futuristic designs are often without, but the car appears to hint towards future-oriented innovations instead of delivering a concrete assurance. The idea, according to the company will serve as a “technology blueprint for series production.”

2022 Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX Concept Review

Mercedes has released only a little technical information and it’s evident there is no doubt that the EQXX is slim and short in comparison to Mercedes’ standards. There’s no information on its overall length, but the confirmation of a 110.0-inch wheelbase indicates that it could be slightly larger than the A-class sedan with 107.4 inches in between its wheels and an overhang that is shorter in the rear. We don’t have a measurement of the width however, the view from the front clearly shows that the EQXX is more narrow than an average Benz as well as it has a rear-wheel that is 2 inches smaller than the front one, thanks to the ultra-slippery design that is responsible for the claimed drag coefficient of 0.17.

Aerodynamic considerations have shaped many other aspects of the EQXX’s elegant form and design, particularly the long, narrow slope of the roofline and the drooping retro-style on the rear offenders. as well as how the bodywork can be tucked in under the full-width light element in the back, which is above an active diffuser that can be deployed which motors out at a high speed of light. The contour of the trunk lid is a clear indication that the Mercedes design of the future is an automobile, not an SUV or hatchback, which is also charmingly vintage.

The shape of the wind-cheating is a major factor in Mercedes’s claim of powertrain efficiency and the official announcement stating that the car can travel up to six miles with only 1.0 kWh of electricity which is comparable to an engine-powered car with an mpg of 202 (which is near to the efficiency Mercedes defines as “the golden figure of one liter per 100 kilometers”). This comparison can be complicated because according to Mercedes the EQXX’s driveline can be said to have a 95% efficiency. This means that only 5.5% of the power that is put into the battery does not make it to the road. Even the best gasoline engines can’t achieve more than 35. This is the reason why EQXX can put up an impressive range number with no massive battery pack. Mercedes claims that the EQXX has less than 100 kWh of capacity that is approximately the same as 3 gallons of regular unleaded gasoline, however, the car can convert more of it into motion. The company is pleased with the battery’s size, which is small and small weight. It’s fifty percent smaller and thirty percent lighter than the 107.8-kWh battery in the EQS.

Engine & Specs

The pack was created in conjunction in conjunction with AMG’s High-Performance Powertrains division in the U.K. It is the company that makes Mercedes F1 engines as well as the equally extravagant engine for the long-awaited (but almost here) AMG One. It operates at a frequency of 900 volts. It also uses what’s described as high silicon anodes that can hold more energy than other cells. It also has a smaller design that permits the same housing to be used to house electronic controls. The battery’s weight, 1091 pounds is astonishingly lightweight for a pack of its capacity as well as the claimed weight of 3858 lbs being marginally higher than the typical Tesla Model 3.

Oddly, there is no formal confirmation on what happens to the motor, other than obvious proof that EQXX has only one motor with rear-wheel drive. Mercedes has stated that the design features an air-cooled underfloor plate that can be used for aerodynamic efficiency as well as active air flaps to channel cooling air and a heat pump that will assist in heating the interior. The concept also has solar panels, though the claims of them to give an additional 15 miles travel in a sunny day does not originate from charging directly the high-voltage battery, but using the energy produced to power the vehicle’s blower fan, lighting as well as infotainment and other auxiliary devices.

Interior

The cabin of the EQXX is defined by what is the logical end of contemporary UI design: a LED display that spans the length of the dashboard, not hampered through vertical seams. The screen is 47.5 inches in size and features 8K resolution, with a 7680×660-pixel display that requires massive graphics power to run. It appears crisp in the images. The official release further states it is “a star-cloud avatar, reminiscent of our namesake, Mercedes Jellinek, is the ethereal guide. Shape-shifting in response to the driver’s needs and taking care of the passengers, she makes the journey into a luxury experience.” We have no clue what that means. Inside, almost an entire box of sustainable boxes has been completed. For example, there are two kinds of vegan leathers which are made of the mushroom’s root structure and the other one derived from cactus fibers within the form of a “bio-based polyurethane matrix.” Carpets are made of bamboo and also trim made of recycled plastics that are woven into an ethereal fabric. The bodywork on the exterior is constructed from low-CO2 steel fabricated of scrap. Doors constructed from carbon fiber as well as glass-reinforced plastics.

The EQXX’s sleek minimalism is a strong reminiscence of another futuristic German prototype that is similarly slippery: the XL1 Diesel plug-in hybrid Volkswagen made available for very small production Europe in 2013. The Mercedes’s four doors and four seats are more practical, and weighs over double the weight, however, the front style is strikingly similar to the. It will be fascinating to find out how much of EQXX’s ideas are incorporated into the next production models.
