On top of that, the car still had 15 percent of battery life left to spare at the end of its journey. Mercedes-Benz said that the vehicle traveled at average road speeds during its test in various weather conditions, including cold and rainy conditions.
Mercedes-Benz estimates that the car’s average consumption was “a record-breaking low of 8.7 kWh per 100 kilometers.” That’s extremely impressive. An average Tesla Model 3 Long Range model uses 16 kWh of electricity per 100 kilometers.
“With our successful road trip to the South of France, we’ve shown that efficiency is the new currency. And this success also clearly speaks for our new collaborative development process, incorporating many learnings from the Mercedes-AMG F1 team and its cutting-edge expertise in electric powertrains,” says Mercedes-Benz’s CTO.
