Mercedes-Benz is intent on showing the world how efficient its slippery 'Vision EQXX' electric concept car is, and a recent 1 200km trip on a single charge broke its previous record.
The trip began in Stuttgart, Germany and ended in Silverstone, England for a grand total of 1 202km, according to Mercedes-Benz.
There are a few factors that helped the concept use just 8.3kWh per 100km, such as its aerodynamic design and use of lightweight materials. It features the same 100 kWh capacity battery as Mercedes' current electric flagship EQS model but weighs significantly less, according to DesignTaxi.

The Dutchman took the car up to its maximum speed limit of 140km/h at this weekend's F1 race venue. The 27-year-old completed 11 laps and used the last of the charge on the pit lane.

Another sleek silver Mercedes-Benz is its hypercar that recently made its dynamic debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, Briefly News reports.
Mercedes-Benz test driver Esteban Gutierrez drove the beast up the hill and then paused to show off its aero dynamic. The crowd witnessed the AMG One's rear wing being deployed and the flaps over the four wheels.
The F1-derived engine revs to 11 000r/min and propels the hypercar to 100km/h in 2.9 seconds, reports Goodwood.com. Admittedly, it's great to hear the shrill of a F1 engine go up the 1.9km-long hill and it'll definitely be a favourite over the weekend.
