Look out Tesla and Fisker, because there is a new EV roadster on the market, and it is being built with the precision of a Swiss timepiece. Brusa is a Swiss company with a long history dealing with electronics. However, only recently have they been toying with the idea of an electric sports car, a new competitor for the American made Tesla Roadster.

The shape of the electric roadster is inspired by the classic Porsche 550 Spyder and is powered by a a couple of 95 kW electric motors – one for each of the rear wheels. The electric engines are powered by a 16 kWh lithium polymer battery pack from Kokam. With all that potential energy stored up, the Spyder can sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in under 5 seconds, and with a range of 77 miles the Brusa is perfect for a sunday cruise or even commuting to the office.

A 16 kW-hour lithium polymer battery is good for around 100 kM, which is probably enough for a trackday but won’t work for the Gumball 3000. It’ll recharge in 4 hours with a 220V adapter. Of course, as with all electrics, your mileage will vary. If they can bring this thing in at a reasonable price, this could be a cool auto-cross platform
