After reports of the Mercedes Vision EQXX’s impressive 621 miles of range came out in November, the company has unveiled more details about the upcoming electric vehicle (EV) in a new announcement.

The Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX is the company’s “most efficient” EV yet, featuring a variety of newly-announced drivetrain upgrades and other new features, according to Automotive News.

Revealed Monday at a streamed Mercedes event, the Vision EQXX will include 100 kWh of energy, with a 30 percent lighter build than the EQS.

It also includes increased silicon in the battery anodes for improved efficiency, a cooling plate in the floor of the EV for 12 miles of range, and thin solar roof panels for another 16 miles of range.

On the upcoming EV, Mercedes CEO Ola Källenius said, “The Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX is how we imagine the future of electric cars.”

The vehicle’s interior also features sustainably-sourced bamboo fiber carpets, and high-strength, vegan fabric for door trim.

While it’s not yet clear what the starting price for the Vision EQXX will be, the Mercedes-Benz EQS starts at a price of $102,310 USD in the U.S.
