Brusa Spyder electric vehicle revealed

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

A Swiss firm that specifically produces parts for EVs has just removed the wraps off of their new all-electric roadster dubbed as Spyder. The vehicle initially began as a university project for the Swiss school of engineering Buchs NTB, but with the assistance of BRUSA there is a great possibility that the car will be capable of competing with the likes of the Tesla Roadster and other established electric sports cars.

To create the car's body style, cues from several sources were used including some features from Porsche, which can be observed from its profile and front section.

Although the car may come with styling cues that refer to its sporting objectives it does not have the fastness of the Tesla Roadster, but it can hit 62mph in six seconds and reach a maximum speed of 125mph plus.

The car is powered by two synchronized electric power units with individual units generating about 127hp (95kW) through an autonomous wheel at the rear, providing the BRUSA Spyder a combined power output of 270hp (200kW).

The battery pack comes with a 16kWh capacity for a total range of 80 miles at an average speed of 50mph. Solar panels on the roof aid the charging of the batteries, which can be charged up to 60 percent of capacity in three hours.

Brusa ultimately chose the Rudolph Spyder, a German roadster inspired by the Porsche 550 Spyder, to become the body that would house its electric powertrain – leading to the birth of the Brusa Spyder EV. In terms of styling, the Brusa Spyder EV features a fascia highlighted by two round headlights mounted just in front of the vehicle's muscular wheel arches.

Moreover, the front end features a bumper that has been seamlessly integrated into the body. The bumper comes with an oval air intake verged by a set of round turning signals. Overall, the body of the Brusa Spyder has a series of curvy fluid lines that forms to create an elegant and appealing skin.

These lines smoothly flow to the rear of the Brusa Spyder EV, wherein a pair of twin taillights produces a unique nighttime signature. Moreover, the Brusa Spyder EV features an old school cabin featuring a clean instrument panel and two sports seats.

Also, the cabin features an elegant dash painted in the same color as the car's body. Furthermore, the Brusa Spyder EV has a cockpit inspired by race cars – a sporty themed front cabin marked by a distinct steering wheel. However, what’s easily noticeable is the lack of modern features and elements inside the cabin of the Brusa Spyder EV.
