Brabus has created a one-off electric E-Class prototype vehicle. Driven by four hub-mounted motors fed by a 56-kWh lithium-ion battery pack, this 320 kW E-class is no slouch, hitting 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 6.9 seconds, while top speed is 220 km/h (136.70 mph). Impressively, a range of up to 350 km (217 miles) is also possible – in eco mode…

The concept car is equipped with an electro-hydraulic BRABUS brake system which sees a vented disc attached to the rear of the hub motors, each disc is gripped by two internal brake calipers. A combination of electronics and hydraulics create a more versatile brake system. The system uses the electric motor to directly operate the brake cylinders. When the driver steps on the pedal, the necessary force is maintained while the hydraulic pressure of the friction brake is controlled to help maximize energy regeneration.
