Brussa’s Electric Spyder

It’s always a good thing to welcome yet another electric vehicle, EV prototype, especially when it looks as good as the Swiss based Brussa’s electric Spyder.  Why do we like its looks and its promising performance?  Read on…

The gist is that the possibilities with EVs are countless, from design to performance, the slate is wiped clean and designers with engineers can once again let their innovations run wild.  That’s why when we saw the Brussa Spyder in AutoBlogGreen‘s post, we felt this little Swiss electric car company gets it right.  It knows how to successfully wrap a technological performer in clothes lovers of older cars will love.

Technically Speaking.  The Spyder is a two DC electric motor, that was unveiled at the EVS24 conference in Stavanger, Norway.  0 to 60 mph is achieved in under 5 seconds, forced from a 16 kWh Kokam lithium polymer battery pack, good for about 125 kilometers, or 77 miles at 80 kph or about 50mph.

Design Beauty.  Yes, the design of the Spyder is sensational drawing on a mix between a Ginetta in the nose and a Maserati Birdcage with the front wheels arch and three quarter back.

You can also see subtle cues from the famed Porsche 550 spyder.

Why is this EV important? In many ways, it can win the hearts of old car enthusiasts who have been feeling blah with the latest decades of lack of, thereof.  Well, you get the gist.  We love old cars and when you can use the electric drive on a beautiful EV, we certainly see the appeal.   This is proof that we can have beauty, performance and not send the environment to hell in a handbasket…, or something ike that.
