Norway when it attended the EVS 24 conference and it sure got everyone’s attention. Just like its namesake it has the same style as the Porsche 550 Spyder.
Each rear wheel of the BRUSA Spyder runs on 95kW and can sprint 60 miles per hour in less than 5 seconds. A 16kW lithium polymer battery pack powers the auto which can run for a total of 125 kilometers. The car’s battery can be plugged into a 220-volt outlet thanks to a liquid-cooled charger located under the hood. The batteries can run for about 100km with a single charge. Charging time takes about four hours.
EVs can still be fun and this has been proven by the BRUSA Spyder. The BRUSA Spyder is one cool auto-cross platform and while there is no word yet on whether it will actually see production it would great if the manufacturer can produce this at a reasonable price.
