The Vision EQXX is set to be unveiled at the very start of next year.
When you hear of a concept that bears the 'Vision' nomenclature, you know that it will probably be something rather radical. The Mini Vision Urbanaut is a good example, providing a new interpretation of what the living space inside a car ought to be like. Then you have BMW's i Vision Circular Concept that aims to preview mobility in the year 2040. Mercedes-Benz has shown off its own such concepts, most recently revealing the Vision AVTR Concept in September of last year. Now the German automaker is following up stunning production vehicles like the Mercedes-Benz EQS with a new concept called the Vision EQXX, and according to a telling LinkedIn post, this will be revealed early next year.
The post comes from Markus Schafer, member of the board at Mercedes-Benz. In it, Schafer explains that the Vision EQXX is set to become the most efficient vehicle that Merc has ever made as it aims to "Lead in Electric Drive." Mercedes has teased this vehicle before, but we weren't provided with an actual range estimate. All we were told is that one would be able to drive from Nice to Stuttgart. Thankfully, the above post tells us that we can expect "a real-world range of more than 1,000 km," or 621 miles in our money. To achieve this, various departments of the company will collaborate.
Schafer says that Mercedes is calling the concept an "interdisciplinary technology program," with experts in "energy efficiency, vehicle concept development, eDrive system integration, software, and design [...] working hand in hand." The boffins at AMG will also be providing input, and Schafer promises exceptional aerodynamic properties along with increased energy density of up to 20% over the battery pack you get in the EQS. More details will come early next year as the all-new Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX concept will be unveiled as part of a world premiere on January 3, 2022.
