Electricity consumption and efficiency class:
BRABUS ULTIMATE E Concept based on the smart fortwo coupe:
electric energy consumption NEDC with wall box charger: 13.9 kWh / 100 km,
electric energy consumption NEDC (Hybrid/BEV) as per ECE-R101: 14 kWh / 100 km,
efficiency class A+.
nant area of use of the concept car. Depending on the driving style, the BRABUS
ULTIMATE E Concept has a range of 190 kilometers (118 miles) or 158 kilometers
(98 miles) in the NEDC standard cycle on a single battery charge.
This comes courtesy of the ‘High-Efficiency Battery Power’ technology from
Kreisel Austria. The compact 22-kWh lithium-ion pack of the Austrian specialists
was tailored to fit the compact body of the smart fortwo perfectly. At the
same time, the energy storage unit is nonetheless particularly light. As a result,
the BRABUS ULTIMATE E Concept has a curb weight of just 1,085 kilograms
(2,392 lbs.). Another advantage of this state-of-the-art battery technology is the
short charging time. On a wall box charger in the garage at home, an 80 percent
charge takes just 30 minutes.
In addition, the BRABUS ULTIMATE E Concept also impresses with its exciting
design. This is not only due to its special bright yellow paint finish, but also due to
its BRABUS WIDESTAR bodywork, which otherwise is exclusively reserved for the
BRABUS ULTIMATE 125 special model.
The widebody version has a sporty and dynamic design with fender flares at the
front and rear axle, which create space for 18-inch wide-base tires, extremely unusual
for an electric car of this size. Using hi-tech forging technology, tailor-made
and especially lightweight BRABUS Monoblock Y wheels are produced for the
current ULTIMATE supercars based on the latest smart generation.
The BRABUS suspension was tailored specifically to the weight of the electric
vehicle, the ultra-low-profile tires, and the wider track.
Of course, there is more to the widebody version than just wider fenders. It also
includes aerodynamic-enhancement components developed in the wind tunnel,
such as a front spoiler, rocker panels, and rear diffuser. This component was fabricated
for the electric car in a special version that features a centered light that
shows when the BRABUS ULTIMATE E Concept is in energy recovery mode or is
As a contrast to the bright yellow outer skin, the BRABUS ULTIMATE E Concept
was fitted in the company upholstery shop with a BRABUS fine leather interior in
blue BRABUS Mastik leather, which is especially soft and breathable. The elaborate
details of this exclusive all-leather interior include decorative stitching and
honeycomb quilting of pinpoint accuracy.
BRABUS stainless pedals and an aluminum shift knob and emergency brake lever
add a touch of racing flair to the cockpit.
The response to the BRABUS ULTIMATE E Concept was so positive already in the
early days of the show that we are now considering building a small series of this
exclusive electric city sports car.
