Article by Anita Panait, on March 1, 2012

Do you want to drive a car that could speed up without emitting harmful pollutants? Then, why not try the smart BRABUS electric car, which promises to provide maximum driving fun without hurting the environment. The smart BRABUS electric is bases on the smart fortwo and is powered by a 60kW electric motor that is based on the state-of-the-art drive technology of the smart fortwo electric car.

Smart BRABUS electric car delivers up to 135 Nm of torque, which says much on how fast the car could accelerate. Aside from the acceleration, the smart BRABUS also lets the driver experience the sporty feel, thanks to the car’s sports suspension which brings the electric vehicle closer to the ground by around 10 millimetres.

The sporty feel is further enhanced by a special BRABUS sound generated by an audio module. The smart BRABUS electric car also features a BRABUS sports steering wheel, with the steering wheel gearshift as a standard feature.

The driver could regulate recuperation with the assistance of the shift paddles. The electric car carries a dynamic look: the car’s door mirror caps and tridion safety cell are finished in electric green while the rest of the car, including the front grille, is painted in black.

Smart BRABUS rides on BRABUS "Monoblock VII" alloy wheels measuring 16” for the front and 17” for the rear. The car also showcases Dark BRABUS headlamps and BRABUSXclusive aerodynamic body styling parts, which include a front spoiler and a special rear apron insert with double reflectors.

The car interior, meanwhile, also comes in the electric green theme. Adding to the interior’s dynamic look are several BRABUSXclusive components, which include the instrument panel and interior door trim in leather look.  The interior is laden with stainless steel sports pedals with rubber nubs, BRABUS hand-brake handle and BRABUS dashboard instruments.

Of course, the new generation of the smart fortwo features a newly redesigned interior that is both refreshing and spacious. One could easily notice the restyled instrument panel now clothed in full fabric with new fabric designs. Instruments now have new dials with a contrasting dark central disc.

Optional features include a fabric-covered folding center armrest, a trip computer and a three-spoke leather steering wheel with cruise control function as well as a new ambient lighting with dimmable LEDs. The interior of the new generation smart fortwo has an array of stowage features and practical details.

Standard stowage features include seat pockets on the sides of the seats while offered as stowage options are a large stowage box for the lower section of the center console and a glove compartment that includes a clip function for holding notes.

Practical details include a tailgate that could be opened using only one hand. On the other hand, the new generation smart fortwo is provided with a new audio system with integrated multimedia and navigation system. This audio system features a large 16.5-cm display, USB and AUX port for external devices like MP3 players, Bluetooth hands-free system, and an iPod control interface for controlling an iPod.
