For the reputation that they’ve built as one of the finest Mercedes tuners in the world, Brabus is more than just fitting powerful V12 engines in their rocket vehicles. They’ve also found a way to be eco-friendly, and they’re doing so with the Brabus Techology Project Hybrid E-Class.
Based on the Mercedes E-Class sedan, the Technology Project Hybrid is a car that Brabus carefully modified to be the kind of eco-friendly diesel hybrid vehicle that fans of Mother Nature will love.
This is proof that you can have your cake and definitely eat it too.
So instead of a V12 engine, Brabus went and fitted a 2.2-liter clear diesel engine and combined with a pair of in-wheel electric motors that were sourced from Protean Electric. Each motor is capable of producing 110 horsepower and 590 lb/ft of torque and when combined with the 2.2 L diesel engine, allows the car to hit 0-62 mph in a pretty impressive 7.4 seconds. More impressive than that is that with this powertrain, the E-Class can improve its fuel economy by a staggering 30 percent, which is out-of-this-world for a car like a Mercedes.
Full specs behind the Brabus Technology Project Hybrid E-Class have yet to be announced, but from what we’ve gathered, this looks like a project that’s definitely worth keeping our tabs on.
