At the Pebble Beach Motor Show, Mercedes presented a new electric concept. The Vision EQ Silver Arrow is a design homage to the record racer W 125 from 1937.

The 5.3 meter long vehicle stands only about a meter tall and has a performance capacity of 550 kW. The performance is provided by an axle motor on both rear and front axles. The driving behavior of the single-seater can also be modified via momentum redistribution over the all-wheel drive. An 80 kWh battery is placed into the floor of the vehicle, which allows for a range of over 400 km. The battery is cooled with the help of ventilation slots in the side.

The concept is said to provide a glimpse of Mercedes’ electrification strategy, while also bringing some attention to their EQ brand. As the vehicle is currently purely a show vehicle, it is not likely that it will be serially produced. It is possible that Daimler seeks to find a design for future racing vehicles as well though.
