2011 Brabus High Performance 4WD Full Electric concept car
There's no dearth of delicious OEM sheet metal in the halls of the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show, but that's no reason to overlook the aftermarket--particularly when it's as impressive as Brabus' all-electric rendition of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
Powered by four in-wheel electric motors (making it all-wheel drive) good for 429 horsepower and a suspiciously additive 2,360 pound-feet of torque, Brabus' latest creation is based on the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and goes by "Brabus High Performance 4WD Full Electric concept car."
Despite the very impressive power and torque figures, the electric Brabus is only good for 0-62 mph times of 6.9 seconds and a top speed of 137 mph. It can run for up to 217 miles, however, thanks to a rather large 57 kWh lithium-ion battery pack.
Brabus says it plans to build a small production run of the cars, but hasn't released availability, quantity, or pricing as yet.
