Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX has been officially unveiled in India, kicking off the third edition of the manufacturer's road safety campaign. So, without any further ado, let's take a look at Mercedes-Benz's brand-new EV concept, which promises an impressive range of over 1000 kilometres on a single charge.
In terms of exterior styling, the Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX concept car looks fairly slick and elegant. In fact, the model's sloping roofline and lengthened rear section give it a distinctive appearance. According to the firm, this design has been used in order to make the Vision EQXX concept car as aerodynamic as possible.
Other design highlights of the Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX include flush door handles, full-width LED taillamps, which almost reach the bottom of the rear bumper, a pair of compact-looking door-mounted rearview mirrors, and a set of aerodynamic-looking wheels.

Thanks to its design, the Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX has a low drag coefficient of just 0.17cD. Instead of a metal 3-pointed star insignia, the Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX has it painted on the bonnet, which also contributes to the low drag coefficient of the car.
Although the Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX concept may not resemble the carmaker' Formula 1 car at all, it has incorporated some of its technology to build a high-density battery pack, which is lightweight and compact. The battery claims to have a range of more than 1000 kilometres despite only having a 100kWh capacity. Furthermore, under optimal conditions, it can extend the range of long-distance trips by up to 25 kilometres.
The Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX features a single 242bhp electric motor. Thanks to an effective drivetrain, 95% of the energy released from the battery is transferred to the wheels of the Vision EQXX. For comparison, the efficiency of a standard ICE engine is just about 30%.
