While many concept cars come and go, very few of them ever go beyond the prototyping stage and even fewer hit the road. That’s exactly what makes Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX stand out from the herd. The Vision EQXX made its premiere at CES in January in Las Vegas, where the German car brand claimed it would show off its technological foresight and prowess in the field of electric vehicles.
The Exterior Design
With a low leading edge, a short bonnet, shapely fenders, and wide wheelhouses, the Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX’s front leans towards a more sports car-like appearance. In the latest model, the digital LED headlights are joined by a full-width LED light bar, and the iconic Mercedes grille is replaced with a star pattern incorporated into the front bumper. Mercedes’ logo is stenciled onto the hood to reduce weight and maintain maximum aerodynamic effectiveness. Additionally, Mercedes has added ninth-generation external mirrors and advanced aerodynamic wheels to the EQXX.
The Interior Design
The interior layout of the car puts simplicity and elegance into focus with only a few modules. This is demonstrated by the absence of complex geometries and the seamless incorporation of lightweight structures into the interior design aesthetic. The enormous 47.5-inch seamless display that fills the width of the dashboard is what will first catch your eye when you peep inside. Mercedes has also made a significant effort to use eco-friendly materials throughout the interior. These materials include a silk-like fabric manufactured from Biosteel fiber, vegan leather made from fibers found in mushrooms or cacti, and carpets woven from bamboo.
Going Beyond the Limits
Aside from the car’s slick shape and lightweight design, its claimed powertrain efficiency of 95 percent also contributes to its impressive range. Additionally, the latest EQXX model comfortably coasts on flat ground without losing speed, thanks to reduced mechanical and aerodynamic resistance.
