Tesla who? Mercedes-Benz says its EQXX EV will travel more than 1200km on a single charge

Mercedes has teased a major breakthrough in EV battery technology.

Mercedes-Benz has teased a major breakthrough in its battery technology, promising its new EQXX EV concept will drive from Sydney to Brisbane - and well beyond - on a single charge.

To be precise, the brand says its incoming EV will be able to drive more than 1200kms per charge.

The Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX is the brand's newest EV prototype which, like the Vision EQS, will feed future battery electric product, though it's unlikely it will become a stand-alone model of its own.

The biggest news, though, is what the brand is referring to is as the "world's longest-range electric vehicle".

“We have set up a group of our engineers to take on an extraordinary task: to build the longest-range and highest-efficiency electric car the world has ever seen,” Mercedes-Benz R&D chief Markus Schafer said in a presentation.

"We intend to incorporate the learning into the next generation of series production cars.”

Sadly, just how it will pull if off remains to be seen (though you can be sure solid-state technology will make an appearance), but we expect the EQXX to officially break cover in the coming months, when all will be revealed.
