Mercedes, reached a 1.000kmh with a single battery charge!

Are you  ready for the longest road trip since the invention of electric mobility!

Mercedes-Benz shared their journey and how it achieved this feat on their blog post

  • The VISION EQXX  has now taken to the roads of Europe and has demonstrated its outstanding range and efficiency.

Journey started from the city of Sindelfingen across the Swiss Alps and Northern Italy, to its destination of Cassis on the Côte d’Azur, that effortlessly covered more than 1,000 km in  traffic, and all that on a single battery charge!

Under cold and rainy conditions,

the journey was undertaken at regular road speeds, including prolonged fast-lane cruising at up to 140 km/h on the German autobahn and near the speed limit elsewhere.

The battery’s state of charge on arrival was around 15 percent, (amounting to a remaining range of around 140 kilometres, and the average consumption was a record-breaking low of 8.7 kWh per 100 kilometres.

The VISION EQXX has taken electric vehicle efficiency to a whole new level – in real-life conditions and with independent proof.

The long-distance drive was completed with the charging socket sealed and accompanied by an independent expert from certification body TÜV Süd.
