Brusa shows off all-electric sportscar

Brusa sportscar fq

Swiss electronics company Brusa recently took an electric sportscar called the Spyder to a European motor show. The Spyder has mysterious underpinnings and may be based on either a rear-engined Volkswagen or possibly a Porsche 914. It’s Porsche 550 Spyder styling clues are more obvious.

Powered by two 95 kW electric motors — one for each rear wheel — the Spyder is reportedly capable of reaching 100 kph in under 5 seconds. Power comes from a 16 kWh lithium polymer battery pack providing enough juice for a range of 125 kilometers at 80 kilometers per hour.

A liquid-cooled charger lives under the bonnet, and a full charge reportedly takes four hours when plugged in to a 16-amp, 220-volt outlet. No details on a possible production schedule yet, but for a vehicle this complex it seems unlikely.
