Mercedes Benz has presented a new concept car, the EQXX.
Amazingly it weighs only 1750 kg and has a 100 kWh battery. Drag coefficient is 0,17 which is unbelievably low. In comparison the MX 30 weighs roughly 1650 kg and has a battery pack of 35,5 kWh. Drag coefficient is 0,34.
So today MB, Toyota and many other manufacturers are throwing billions at EV R&D. This is no longer a one company game.
For EV drivers this is something to celebrate. Mazda still has given us a fun and affordable daily driver that works. With time, all this investment in new tech will trickle down to mass market affordable EVs.

Both Mercedes and BMW have recently just massively upped their EV game...

Given that they have been raking in billions of € selling very lacklustre cars the past few years, its clear to see they've had a lot of EV R&D going on behind the scenes!

It does make me a little sad that Mazda invested so heavily in ICE.
