BRABUS creates its own hybrid system for a powerful yet economical E-Class

This Brabus Hybrid is another project from the German tuning house which aims to provide economical supercar performance. Brabus’s Zero Emissions Business unit starts off with a E220 CDI BlueEfficiency E-Class and then adapts its Eco tuning module to add 30 PS (22 kW / 29 hp) to the 2.2 liter diesel unit for an output of 200 PS (147 kW / 197 hp) and 450 Nm (295 to 332 lb-ft). The electric mobility comes courtesy of British firm Protean Electric which provides the wheel hub motors Brabus fits to the rear axle integrated with their in-house Monoblock Q 19-inch wheels.

The two electric motors each produce 50 kW (68 PS) in Eco mode and 80 kW (109 PS) in Sport mode. Together they make for an a peak output of 160 kW (220 PS / 216 hp) and a massive 1,600 Nm (1,180 lb-ft) of torque. The 18.6-kWh lithium-ion battery pack is housed in the underbody and gives the Brabus Hybrid in all-electric Eco mode a range of 120 kilometers (75 miles). In Sport mode the car has a range of 80 kilometers (50 miles) travelling solely on electrical power. Combined, the powertrain allows for this Brabus Hybrid to do the 0 to 100 km/h sprint in just 7.4 seconds, compared to 8.7 for the series E220 CDI BlueEfficiency. Unfortunately, this is still just a prototype and is not for sale.
