Mercedes in January will show the EQXX, a "software-designed research prototype" that the automaker describes as "the most efficient vehicle the brand has ever built."
Images released this week indicate that the EQXX will be a full-electric vehicle with a coupe-styled sedan configuration, recalling the CLS that was first launched in 2004. If it enters series production it would expand Mercedes’ range of EQ full-electric vehicles into another subcategory.
The most recent EQ models are the EQB compact SUV and an AMG version of the EQS large luxury sedan. the Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4Matic.
Mercedes did not give technical details on the EQXX. It said the prototype "includes advances across all elements of its cutting-edge electric drivetrain as well as the use of lightweight engineering and sustainable materials."
It will be shown on Jan. 3 in an online event, Mercedes said, and will be the centerpiece of the brand’s stand at CES in Las Vegas from Jan. 5-8.
