Rekordowe osiągnięcie Mercedesa. To elektryk przyszłości?

A record achievement for Mercedes. Is this the electrician of the future?

Mercedes-Benz praised the record-breaking achievement of its electric car. On one charge, a range of over 1,300 km was achieved.

We are talking about the Mercedes-Benz VISION EQXX concept car. It was his third run and the German company managed to achieve record results. On one charge, the vehicle traveled over 1,000 km, and at the destination it showed that it still had power to travel an additional 300 km.

Record-breaking run by an electrician

The route was designated between Riyadh (Saudi Arabia) and Dubai (United Arab Emirates). It started at 4:15 a.m. local time and, including a break for changing drivers and crossing the border, lasted a total of 14 hours and 42 minutes. The same drive, according to Mercedes, took 12 hours and 45 minutes. At that time, the car had an average speed of 79.4 km/h, and for a while it was able to accelerate up to 140 km/h.

During the test, the average energy consumption was 7.4 kWh/100 km, which is a very good result and cannot be repeated by electric cars currently available for sale. This was possible, among other things, thanks to the air resistance of only 0.17 Cd. Importantly, on site VISION EQXX showed that it still had the energy to cover another 300 km.

The weather was also important. The average temperature during the journey is 34 degrees Celsius, and these are very favorable conditions for lithium-ion cells. In addition, VISION EQXX is equipped with passive cooling, which would be difficult to accept in a normal road car due to the problem of cell degradation.

It is also worth mentioning that the car uses a battery with a capacity of approximately 100 kW, which operates at a voltage of 900 V. In addition, Mercedes boasts new generation heat pumps. The car has an engine with a power of 180 kW/245 HP.

This does not change the fact that the result is very impressive. This proves that in the world of electric cars there is still a lot of room for innovation, thanks to which they can simply become better. After all, range and charging time are some of their biggest problems.
