The Mercedes-Benz VISION EQXX electric concept vehicle has travelled over 1,000km on a single battery charge. The recent test from Germany to France saw the car travel on regular roads with traffic and some poor weather conditions. During the trial, the average consumption for the vehicle was 8.8 kWh per 100 km (~62 miles), a record low.

Mercedes-Benz has announced that its VISION EQXX electric concept car has completed a real-world test, travelling over 1,000 km (~621 miles) on a single battery charge. The vehicle travelled from Sindelfingen, Germany, across the Alps and Italy to reach Cassis in France. The 12-hour journey was completed in everyday traffic conditions, in rainy and cold weather, between 3 and 18°C.

According to Mercedes, the car spent ‘prolonged’ periods cruising at up to 140 kph (~87 mph) on the autobahn. At the end of the test, the car had around 15% battery charge remaining, which could have enabled it to travel for another 140 km (~87 miles).

The vehicle averaged 87.4 kph (~54.3 mph) throughout the trip. The average consumption of the VISION EQXX on the journey was a record-breaking low of 8.8 kWh per 100 km (~62 miles). The test was certified by an independent expert from TUV Sud.

The Mercedes VISION EQXX was unveiled earlier this year, with fans speculating that the concept could become a production vehicle to rival the Tesla Roadster. The company initially stated that the concept car would consume around 10 kWh per 100 km (~62 miles).

Mercedes credited the Mercedes-AMG F1 team for employing its electric powertrain expertise to help develop the long-ranging car. The company has said that it will use the technology from the VISION EQXX in future vehicles, though it did not specify when this would happen.
