According to Mercedes-Benz, the battery pack in the VISION EQXX holds almost 100 kWh of energy yet has 50% less volume and is 30% lighter than the already benchmark pack in EQS. 

Moreover, it is a lightweight car weighing 1,750kg that has been aerodynamically optimized. The company said that, with a drag coefficient of cd 0.17, the EV is more aerodynamic than a football (which has a cd of 0.18 to 0.2). Mercedes-Benz claims that 95% of battery energy is directed to the wheels.

As for the interior, the Vision EQXX’s infotainment system has a single 47.5-inch, mini-LED 8K screen. In addition, the automaker worked with NAVIS Automotive Systems on a navigation system with zoom and scroll functions that include a satellite view. The “Hey Mercedes” voice assistant is also integrated into the infotainment system.

The automaker also revealed that the vehicle makes extensive use of recycled waste materials, such as the recycled PET bottles used in a shimmering textile to enhance the floor area and door trim. Higher up in the interior, the designers used Dinamica made from 38% recycled PET to create a wrap-around effect linking the upper edge of the screen with the doors and headliner. The interior also features UBQ material, a sustainable plastic substitute made from household and municipal landfill waste.
