Mercedes-Benz is planning on electrifying its entire fleet of produced passenger cars by 2030. To reach this goal, the company is focusing its development on the VISION EQXX. This car is said to be unimaginably efficient with a 1,000 km range (621.4 miles) while maintaining a traditionally sized battery pack. The new battery will be able to achieve a power consumption of only 1 kWh for every 9.66 km (6 miles).
The development of the car is taking center stage and even taking support from other Mercedes-Benz departments such as its F1 High Performance Powertrain division. Furthermore, the development of the VISION EQXX is said to bring technological advances that will eventually be applied to other electric cars in the Mercedes-Benz fleet.
Auto Trendy’s take:
Mercedes-Benz has been indicating a definitive shift to electric vehicles for some time and has been researching all aspects of the vehicles, including the batteries. This effort will help the company remain at the top of the luxury-vehicle world as, assuming that comfort features keep improving at the same rate, the technology will also be on the cutting-edge. Daimler as a whole has been flirting with electrification for several years and it would be interesting to see at which point the commercial vehicle subsidiaries will also make announcements about electrification deadlines.
