Make/Model: Smart fortwo Brabus
Manufacturer: Smart / Brabus

The word

Imagine a little Smart car that does 0-60 km/h in only 4.4 seconds while putting out 60kW from its motor and 135 Nm of torque. OK, not exactly peppy, but still pretty speedy considering this is the tiny Smart fortwo we're talking about.

The battery pack remains unchanged and Brabus says the range would still be about 90 miles per charge.

Other updates include signature Brabus styling cues, premium interior upfits, and added electronics for charging options.

Those options include Internet connectivity when plugged in, automatic Smart Meter (Homeplug AV) connectivity, and plug-n-play charging (called Plug&Charge) with most major public charge point systems.

And so ...

The Smart Brabus electric drive can be ordered from dealers in 11 countries.
