Mercedes-Benz EV concept rolling on Bridgestone tyres

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled its new Vision EQXX concept electric vehicle, which promises a range in excess of 1,000 kilometres on a single charge from a battery.

For this vehicle, Mercedes-Benz engineers worked in cooperation with Bridgestone. Together, they took advantage of Bridgestone’s Turanza Eco tyre combined with lightweight and environmentally friendly Enliten and ologic technology enabling ultra-low-rolling-resistance.

Bridgestone says the tyre design also features aerodynamically optimised sidewalls to match the covers mounted on the 20-inch, lightweight, forged-magnesium wheels.

The semi-transparent double-spoke design of these covers meets all aerodynamic requirements, according to the tyre maker, while at the same time retaining a view of the rose-gold accents adorning the wheels.

The Vision EQXX concept electric vehicle is currently being displayed at the CES 2022 Show in Las Vegas.
