Smart #1 Brabus hits the limelight in China with 428 PS, 3.7s sprint time
Brabus and Smart have presented a particularly powerful version of their e-SUV called #1 in China.
Unlike the standard Smart #1, which propels itself forward with a single rear-mounted electric motor rated at 272 PS (268 hp / 200 kW), the Brabus version adds a second motor at the rear axle with 156 PS (154 hp / 115 kW) of its own. Switching to Brabus Mode enables the car to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.7 seconds and top out at 180 km/h (112 mph).
Battery and range specifications have yet to be disclosed. The standard car (shown in the video) makes do with a 66-kWh traction battery sufficient for 440 km (273 miles) of WLTP-rated range. The addition of a second motor likely reduces the range of the Brabus variant, but we still don’t know how much.
Aside from the above, the Smart #1 Brabus sports an aggressive body kit with a red roof spoiler and upsized 19-inch wheels. Red accents have made their way into the cabin as well, which sports a new trim.
Sales in China will kick off this autumn, and the companies intend to export the #1 Brabus to other countries as well.
