Brabus High Performance 4WD Full Electric E-Class Shocks
How serious? 429 hp and 2,360 lb-ft of torque serious. Yes, we know the numbers are impressive. They arrive thanks to the use of four Protean wheel hub electric motors. We have to add that this layout also means that we receive four-wheel-drive. In case you were wondering where all the negative particle rush comes from, we'll tell you that the vehicle uses a 56-kWh lithium-ion battery pack.
So, let's go further into the numbers territory - The 0 to 62 mph sprint is left behind in 6.9 seconds, while the top speed sits at 137 mph (221 km/h).
As for the range, the car can give you up to 217 miles (350 km) per charge (the value is offered for cruising at 62 mph). If we use the standard cycle ( NEDC) to measure the range, we get 150 miles (240 km)
Brabus hasn't announced the pricing for the vehicle, but did mention that it plans to bring the car to the market in limited numbers. The tuning specialist hasn't forgotten to fit the High Performance 4WD Full Electric E-Class with aerodynamic goodies, as well as with a set of 19-inch rims.
All the above sounds pretty tempting, but which would you rather drive, this EV or the new Brabus Rocket?
