Mercedes-EQ Vision EQXX
Vision EQXX by Mercedes-EQ
Just two years ago, this concept car began as a visionary technology program with the intent to build an entirely new powertrain and energy‑dense battery in‑house. Range and efficiency are set to define the electric era. Exceptional range will make electric cars suitable for every journey and help to increase overall adoption. Reduced battery size and weight will improve efficiency, allowing us to go further with less. Mercedes-Benz is determined to lead the way. We are already leading the way in terms of real-world range with the EQS with 245 kW, as evidenced by the recent Edmunds test where an traveled 422 miles on one charge, 77 miles further than any other car previously tested.
However, Mercedes-Benz is not stopping there. Driven by the idea of zero impact on our planet and a highly responsible use of green energy, we encouraged our engineers to go above and beyond. They are working intensively to take range and efficiency to a completely new level. The VISION EQXX is the result of a mission we set to break through technological barriers and lift energy efficiency to new heights.
Meet the electric that achieves 620 miles on a single charge.¹
Taking electric range and efficiency to an entirely new level
Designed for the road trip
There’s a reason why road trips have been a cultural benchmark for at least 70 years, telling stories from the highway in books, movies and music. The road trip defines freedom, individuality, the very spirit of the automobile and the passing world. Stick a pin in the map – and drive. Be in tune with the road, and with the car. It’s the pioneering spirit that pairs vision with the tenacity to make it happen.
Putting this 620 miles-per-charge range into the real world, it’s the equivalent of a traditional gas vehicle getting 235 miles per gallon. And for even further range, the Vision EQXX has solar panels on the roof to power numerous functions inside. This concept car represents an early prototype of what’s in store for Mercedes‑EQ.
Formula 1 Inspired
Mercedes-Benz engineers collaborated with the brilliant minds of Formula 1 and Formula E to transform the battery and motor into lightweight units. With expert engineering and Formula 1 thinking, our battery chemists squeezed the energy of the EQS into the dimensions of a compact car. The battery pack in the VISION EQXX holds almost 100 kWh of energy, yet has 50% less volume and is 30% lighter than the already benchmark pack in EQS.
VISION EQXX: Quick Highlights
Across the board, efficiency engineering achievements delivered an astounding energy consumption of less than 10 kWh per 100 km (efficiency of more than 6 miles per kWh)

Vision EQXX safety, performance, and electrifying technology.
Mercedes-Benz vehicles have always excelled in those three areas, and electric drivetrains give us the opportunity to advance our capabilities even further. From quicker acceleration to elevated ride comfort, the benefits of electric power are immediate, but our vision doesn’t stop there. Technology “under the hood” is matched by technology in the driver’s seat. Improved battery power is matched by improved design. Mercedes-EQ vehicles are built to appeal to your intelligence and your emotions.
Synchronous Lithium-ion-Powered Motors
All Mercedes-EQ vehicles use synchronous motors, known for their high efficiency, compact size and ability to produce high torque at low speeds. Positioned beneath the vehicle floor, our next-generation Lithium-ion batteries set new benchmarks in performance, efficiency and charging capacity.
Self-leveling AIRMATIC® air suspension can adapt each wheel’s damping and ride height to optimize agility and poise in response to the loads, roads, and the driving modes of DYNAMIC SELECT. Automatic lowering helps enhance handling and driving range at highway speeds.
Vision EQXX: Charging, Ahead
Mercedes me Charge helps simplify the entire process of locating, using and paying for charging on all major US networks. Beyond the generous driving range and brisk response of the EQ lineup, it’s the industry-advancing charging ecosystem offers nearly 60,000 charge points nationwide with the assurance of green energy. And its intelligent navigation sets a new standard for electric motoring simplicity.
Charge at Home
There’s no better place to charge up than in the comfort of your own garage. Safe, convenient and cost-effective, the Home Flex from ChargePoint can be installed through Qmerit, so you can charge overnight and be ready to hit the road. If you have more questions about charging, see our Frequently Asked Questions at the bottom of this page.
Charge on the Go
Mercedes me Charge is the official charging network of Mercedes-EQ. Through MBUX in your vehicle or the Mercedes me Connect app on your phone, you can seamlessly plan trips, locate charging stations and initiate payment at nearly 60,000 public chargers nationwide.
