The fine art of aerodynamics has a long and illustrious tradition at Mercedes-Benz. Automotive enthusiasts will recall the C 111 from the 1970s. Today, it is the luxury class pioneer, the EQS, that holds the world record for the most aerodynamic production vehicle. The VISION EQXX is now establishing the next milestone – with a drag coefficient of just 0.17. This record value is of particular importance for electric driving and, above all, for the range. This is because two-thirds of the electric energy is needed just to counter the air resistance.
The forms flow seamlessly with unparalleled elegance from the front over the powerful, sensuous shoulders right to the highly effective aerodynamics of the rear spoiler edge. Many other details demonstrate how consistently and almost uncompromisingly the VISION EQXX has been designed for aerodynamics: the front face is smaller than that of a compact CLA and thus poses minimal resistance. A narrower rear wheel track allows the air to flow more efficiently. And transparent external covers on the wheels prevent virtually all air turbulence, while also allowing amazing views of the rose-gold magnesium rims.
