Brabus Electric Hybrid E-Class

rabus has established a green division that instead of mad performance, is responsible for sensible and green performance!

Their first full-on project is the BRABUS High Performance 4WD Full Electric based on the Mercedes E-Class, shown at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. it features four wheel hub motors from English manufacturer Protean ELECTRIC.

The all-wheel-drive vehicle, which celebrates its world debut at the 2011 IAA, accelerates from 0 – 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 6.9 seconds and reaches a top speed of 220 km/h (137 mph) – and all without emitting as much as a single gram of CO2. A powerful 56-kWh lithium-ion battery pack provides an operating range of up to 350 kilometers (217 miles). There are plans for a small-series production run of this unique automobile.

A low weight of just 31 kilograms (68 pounds), a compact diameter of only 42 centimeters (16.5 inches) and a thickness of merely 11.5 centimeters (4.5 in.) make these motors perfectly suited for this project. They are positioned in the BRABUS Monoblock Q wheels in size 8.5Jx19 front and back.

The good thing is, in Brabus’ vision of a green var there is still plenty of fun and speed. So bring it on!
