With the introduction of the new Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX concept with a completely different aerodynamic design, the death of the Mercedes-Benz box sedans should be officially announced. Mercedes-Benz brand design director Gordon Wagner emphasizes the need to use the new generation of aerodynamics to produce a new generation of all-electric vehicles.
This will make the box design of the glorious and lovable sedans of this brand disappear forever.
Boxed side-by-side sedans perfectly distinguish between the room, the trunk and the engine, which have undergone changes in design and production over the years, but without a doubt have their own beauty.
In previous years, fastback design was gradually used in the automotive industry, known as 4-door coupes. Now this fastback design has reached its peak and its aerodynamic impact is practically indisputable.
Currently, range of motion and energy consumption is the biggest customer concern for electric vehicles. As a result, automakers are willing to sacrifice everything to achieve optimal consumption.
In the new design, the C columns have been completely removed and replaced by long, arched columns.
This design is especially abundant in Porsche products.
The windshield also uses a completely different arc to have the least resistance to air.
The traditional front window of Mercedes-Benz products must also be completely removed. Instead of the windshield, new and modern designs with colored stripes will be used to have no effect on the car’s aerodynamics.
Mercedes will spend more time designing the headlights and has used the shape of the Mercedes 3 full star in the design of the headlights.
Mercedes has used solar panels instead of all-glass or all-metal roofs, and plans to use these solar panels in its products in 2024.
As a result, this panel allows you to increase the range of motion by 24 km.
Mercedes has not released details on the new design language of its long-wheelbase vehicles, but since only long-wheelbase vehicles are popular in the car market today, sedans have nothing to say against the sale of long-wheelbase vehicles.
As a result, Mercedes has a much harder time redesigning them because it can affect their sales.
It is noteworthy that the popular Mercedes-Benz chassis, the G-Class, is one of the most non-aerodynamic vehicles in the automotive industry, which is still on offer and is one of the most popular. As a result, Mercedes never intends to change the design of such a popular and lovable model.
