Said Mercedes tuner, Brabus, may be famous for all its powerful software settings, but their addiction to power does not necessarily mean that they do not have clean bones in the body.
Somewhat surprisingly, Brabus knocking at their inner affinity for the environment with the introduction of new technology Hybrid Project BRABUS. Hybrid vehicle program is based on CDI Mercedes E 220, but instead of his usual transmission, the car was equipped with four electric motors. There's a motor at each wheel, and each carries a 50 kW (67 hp) per share in economy mode and up to 80 kW (107 hp) each mode Sport. Four electric motors, then joined the 56 kWh lithium-ion battery, which further increases the total production of cars up to 320 kW (435 hp) and - get ready - 2360 lb / ft of torque. Wow.
Non translate into performance, which include 0-62 miles / h sprint time of 6.9 seconds, ECO-mode top speed of 118 miles / h and in Sport mode, the maximum speed of 137 miles / h. As a hybrid, special attention should be be given to the driving range and car BRABUS HYBRID technology project back very impressive 217 miles from the point of the battery with 90 minutes to recharge on 380 V three-phase network and up to five hours through a normal 220 V AC.
Brabus Technology Project Hybrid
For this project begins with a Brabus Mercedes-Benz E220 CDI diesel BlueEfficiency and turns it into a hybrid, electric filling in center of each rear wheel. Brabus appealed to the British manufacturer of electric motors Protean. Each engine produces 67 hp in economy mode and 107 hp in Sport mode, the maximum torque, however, is designed to 1180 Nm. The second part of the hybrid equation Brabus "is the stock 2.2-liter turbodiesel engine that gets the company ECO PowerXtra D3 kit, boosting output to 200 hp and 332 lb-ft increase from 170 hp and 295 lb-ft in stock form. Brabus claims that 0-62 miles / h acceleration time improved from 8.7 to 7.4 seconds. Hybrid will also work in zero-emission electric mode for up to 75 miles depending on the mode and style driving. 18.6 kWh lithium-ion battery is charged by regenerative braking or when connected to a fast or a normal charger. Hybrid gets standard performance Brabus and look quick updates, such Bilstein-developed suspension, body kit and interior trim.
Brabus High Performance 4WD Full Electric
Brabus has transformed the standard E-class in its high-performance 4WD electric concept complete, removing the gas engine and transmission. Electrical components such as batteries were stuffed under the hood, in the propeller tunnel, and the area of the fuel tank. For power, Brabus uses the same Protean Electric motors and power seats, one in all four wheel units total production peak of 429 hp and 2360 Nm of torque. Brabus EV needs only an estimated 6.9 seconds to accelerate from 0-62 miles / h and top speed is limited to 137 miles / h (red line the motor speed to 2000 revolutions per minute).
According to Brabus, each engine weighs only 68 pounds, has a diameter of 16.5 inches and a thickness of 4.5 inches. The engines are powered by a 56-kWh lithium-ion battery charged by regenerative braking or fast or normal to connect the units. 380 fast-charge the unit will charge batteries in 1.5 hours, providing a range of up to 217 miles based on the new European driving cycle, (NEDC). Uses standard 220V outlet takes about five hours to fully charge.
Both of these concepts to their debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Although the release says that this "prototype - not for sale," We believe that if you went to the Brabus with a big enough check, they would be happy to build you one in the not too distant future.
