Why the Mercedes-Benz EQXX does not have digital mirrors


The Mercedes-Benz EQXX is all about aerodynamics and efficiency. However, the model does not have external digital mirrors. Why not?

Audi Etron, Honda e, Lexus ES: All have, if not optional, digital door mirrors. Also of Volkswagen XL1, a German aerodynamic aerodynamic wonder, has cameras whose image is displayed on a car. All to make the car as easy as possible, because the two large wing mirrors near column A provide more air resistance.

1000 km

We still don’t see them with the Mercedes-Benz EQXX, which showed up last week. With this car, the manufacturer sets a new standard in terms of aerodynamics and efficiency. With a minimum Cw value of 0.17, a 100 kWh battery in the model is ideal for a range of 1000 km of electricity. Couldn’t it be more if EQXX had digital door mirrors?

“We don’t think so,” says Gordon Wagener, design boss at Mercedes-Benz. “Digital mirrors can make the car more airy, but don’t forget that the cameras and screens in the car need more energy. They use more energy than they produce. In addition, we find that conventional outdoor mirrors work better than those of digital, “the German said.

Prestige project

Also do not think that the EQXX is a concept car that will never go into production. Mercedes-Benz intends to sell the car, albeit in a shorter version. It will be a kind of prestigious project, such as the XL1 from Volkswagen.

“That’s why we wanted to build a reliable car with EQXX,” says Wagener. “It has to be a car that can go into production in this way, also to show people what we are already capable of. Of course we could take more steps to make the car easier. But then there would be some kind of space ship, a car that we know it would not go through a production process soon. And we did not want to do that. “
