    These are the key data of the engine in the smart ED3, but not the key data of the smart ED3. This is because the battery can not deliver the 80kW without losing longevity. That's why it's limited to 55kW (Brabus 60kW). If you want to experience the motor with its full performance, you should try the Fiat 500e. The Porsche 918 Spyder is also equipped with the motor on the front axel. The inverter was also installed in the Renault Fluence.

    Technically, there are no differences between the Brabus and the regular smart electric drive. That's also, why there are smart cars, which got the update to the Brabus tune. More about that can be found in this blog post. There's also 3rd part companies, who offer tuning kits for the smart ED. More infos about that are in this blog post.
