Brusa Spyder - Tesla Roadster rival
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.
