We expect, the new Brabus badged EV will pack the same size battery as the crossover, a 66-kWh battery. The Brabus #1 with its insane power bump leaves the car to deliver up to an electric driving range of 273 miles.
We are familiar with the brand’s heavy body kit makeovers and modifications, but with this, Brabus joined hands to build this EV alongside Smart. It is why the EV doesn’t look different from the standard model offered by the brand. The company will offer the EV in three-tone paint combining Laser Red and Silent Black with Matte Grey paint with red brake calipers. The #1 packs a beautiful interior with Alcantara stitched with red contact all over the cabin similar to every Brabus creation.
