Tesla generally faces numerous interesting and challenging measurements from competitors, especially in terms of range and speed. Since the Mercedes-Benz VISION EQXX set a huge milestone of 1,000 kilometers (620 miles) earlier this week on a single charge, many may wonder if Tesla engineers are trying to push the new EV across the 2,000-kilometer range. I assure you they do not.
The achievements made in Mercedes-Benz’s electric vehicle program are not insignificant. While the luxury automaker is in the process of developing and upgrading its EQ line to include fully and partially electric vehicles, Mercedes certainly comes out with some pretty interesting and eye-catching records and points of strength, especially in its latest range. Estimates and ratings of its semi-autonomous driving function. Its most recent release since April 13, VISION EQXX and tells us how it drove 626 miles on a single charge.
“We did it! A single battery charge facilitates travel of more than 1,000 kilometers and consumes 8.7 kWh / 100 km (7.1 kWh per 62 miles) in real-world traffic conditions,” said Ola Källenius, Mercedes Board of Management chart. Pence Group AG. The Mercedes built so far is highly efficient and the technology behind it marks a milestone in the development of electric vehicles, confirming our strategic goal of being ‘leading in electricity’.
Traveling one lane through Germany and Italy, it passed the cities and towns of Sintelfingen, the Cordhardt Tunnel, Milan and Casis, and completed the 626-mile voyage in 11 hours and 32 minutes.
Many of those interested in electric vehicles may think, “This is another thing that struck Tesla.” “It’s a matter of time before others do it.” “Tesla could not achieve this. They were stuck in the threshold of the 400-mile limit.”
Tesla, as a company, may be excited about the execution of these endurance type runs by other companies, so they do not have to. If the automotive industry in 2022 is the same as it was in 2010: the sector dominated by a gas engine with relatively no electric options, of course, perhaps Tesla might be worried. But maybe not. The terrain of the EV industry has become so intriguing with these incredible measurements that many consumers have forgotten that they do not need more than 600 miles. How many gas car drivers ask, “Should I buy a car after driving 620 miles in a tank?” They go to the dealership thinking that.
CEO Elon Musk recently said that even having a “high” limit is not a good thing for electric vehicles.
“We may have built the 600-mile Model S 12 months ago, but it would have made the product worse, 99.9% of the time you’re carrying unnecessary battery, which worsens the acceleration, handling and performance,” Musk said recently. More than use. ” ABC News He says the average American travels only sixteen miles a day for work. Even the U.S. Census data shows that Americans drive only 27.6 minutes to work one way.
Tesla has held this perspective for some time. “Mass is the enemy of both efficiency and performance, and reducing the weight of each component is the current goal of our design and engineering teams,” it said in a blog post announcing the 400-mile Model S in June 2020. “Many subjects have now been transferred from the engineering design and production of the Model 3 and Model Y to the Model S and Model X, which opens up new areas for mass reduction while maintaining the premium feel and performance of both vehicles. Additional weight savings have been achieved by standardizing lower products.
While there is certainly no reason to tap into Mercedes-Benz’s achievements, there should be a comparative sense of what is ultimately appropriate in the EV range. Tensile flows are perfectly systematic and interesting ways to prove your battery and performance measurements, but they are not something that EV companies see proven on the road. Successful automakers will focus on avoiding supply chain problems, increasing battery supply chain production, and integrating more vertically and creating a price balance between EVs and their gas counterparts.
