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.
