With its particularly efficient aerodynamic design and a projected range of up to 620 miles per charge, the new electric concept car Mercedes-Benz EQXX intends to finally put an end to EV range anxiety.

Range has always been one of the biggest factors for prospective EV buyers, many of which still end up opting for a new car with a traditional internal combustion engine. While Tesla and other manufacturers have recently made great strides in this regard, a well-known German automaker has now showcased some intriguing technical innovations in form of the Mercedes-Benz EQXX electric concept car.

The design of the Mercedes EQXX, which can be seen in the pictures embedded below, may look rather unusual, but it supposedly contributes to the car's impressively low drag coefficient of just 0.17. In addition, the air-cooled 100 kWh battery is supposed to be very compact and lightweight, and the solar cells placed on the roof of the Mercedes EQXX are intended to improve the range of the futuristic concept car on long-distance road trips. When its battery eventually runs out of juice, the Mercedes EQXX can be recharged extremely quickly with up to 900 volts.

Unlike other recently unveiled electric cars, such as the monstrous BMW iX M60 performance SUV, the Mercedes EQXX features rather modest performance specs which emphasize its focus on sustainability and efficiency. The luxurious sedan only comes with 201 electric horsepower and can reach a top speed of 87 mph. It is quite doubtful that the Mercedes EQXX will ever be put on the market in its current form, but some of its impressive technical innovations are expected to find their way into some of the German manufacturer's EV models in the next few years.
