The tuning house Brabus has presented a new model which represents a premiere for the well known tuning experts. They have demonstrated that they're capable of obtaining horse power in an alternative form ecological. More precisely, the guys have developed a 100% electric Mercedes-Benz E-Class W212. Alongside the fact that we are talking about an electric vehicle with a propulsion system developed in-house, this car also has a permanent four-wheel drive system. The Brabus High Performance Concept is bragging with 435 bhp and 3,200 Nm of torque which, by the current electric vehicles market, is simply amazing.

In order for the car to achieve such high performances, Brabus has equipped the car with four electric engines which correspond to each wheel. In sport mode, each of the four engines offer 80 kW of raw power and 800 Nm of torque. When it comes to times on the track, the power generated by the four engines have plenty to prove the electric E-Class goes from a standstill to 62 mph (or 100 km/h) in about 6.9 seconds which is very good for an electric car. The top speed of the car is 135 mph (or 220 km/h).

The Lithium-ion batteries have 56 kWh of power and provide the autonomy of 220 mph (or 350 km). Using the NEDC (used to classify all the sold electric vehicles in Europe) standards the Brabus model has the autonomy of 150 mph (or 240 km).

The true achievement of the people from Brabus is that the model has been developed only by the in-house engineers that are used to modifying Mercedes-Benz cars.

As you can image, the car doesn't generate any of the bad CO2 emissions and the Brabus team is bragging with the fact that the car has an electro-hydraulic braking system with a feature that recovers kinetic energy and converts it back to electric power for the batteries. Completely charging the batteries of the car from a standard 220 volts socket is done in about five hours, while a quick-charge, developed by RWE, from a 380 volts socket is performed in just one and a half hours.

The guys from Brabus are preparing a limited series for this model, designed for the enthusiasts of eco friendly cars that don't want to sacrifice the performance or interior space.

With the development of this car, it seems that all of a sudden, electric vehicles have become more interesting.

Taking into account that this car has such high performances, accidents can happen and you should be prepared. If you have been driving and suffered an accident on the road, then you may wish to talk to a solicitor about road traffic accident claims.
