With each passing day, there’s more evidence that Electric Vehicles (EVs) will soon dominate new car dealerships within the next ten to twenty years. The innovations in battery technology are starting to kick into a higher gear as manufacturers like Mercedes-Benz tout longer-range vehicles, such as the new Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX Concept that claims a range of over 620 miles on a single charge.
Mercedes-Benz hopes to be among the first few automakers to make range anxiety a thing of the past or a thing that its loyal consumers never have to worry about in the first place by hinting towards a future of vehicles like this new Vision EQXX Concept that you see here that’s supposedly more efficient than any other EV on the current market and gets over 620 miles of range.
How does Mercedes-Benz muster over 620 miles of EV range out of the Vision EQXX Concept? Well, first, look at it! The Vision EQXX Concept looks like no other modern-day Mercedes-Benz giving it a remarkable drag coefficient of just 0.18. That’s unheard of in any street-legal vehicle! That drag coefficient is all part of the design shape and elongated rear end. Air is directed around the front wheels to form a curtain and keep the air attached to the side and flowing out back with reduced turbulence thanks to the long tail of the vehicle. There’s active aero, too – an active rear diffuser that lowers and extends around 40 mph to keep the air underneath equal to that of the air streaming off the top and sides.
