Electric driving in the city is more fun than ever with this 2.69 meters short bundle of power.
The Brabus Smart fortwo electric drive is prove that cutting-edge urban mobility can be combined with agility and a sporty appearance. The electric motor is based on the drive technology of the new Smart fortwo electric drive with power output of 60 kW and peak torque of 135 Nm. The new Brabus sports suspension brings the car approximately 10 millimeters closer to the asphalt. The sporty character is accompanied by a special Brabus sound to match, generated by a sound module.

The tridion safety cell and door mirror caps are painted in electric green whilst black dominates on all other body parts – even the front grille. Dark Brabus headlamps, Brabus “Monoblock VII” alloy wheels measuring 16″ at the front and 17″ at the rear, and Brabus Xclusive aerodynamic body styling parts (a front spoiler and a special rear apron insert with double reflectors) round off the sporty look.
Inside, the interior accent trim parts and contrast components also come in electric green.
