Tuning house Brabus has offered the first look at its electrified future, showcasing the Brabus Electric Concept for Mercedes-Benz EQC 400.

The EQC is Mercedes-Benz’s first all-electric car and has been given the true Brabus treatment — more power, a body kit and new rims. Brabus’ rework is based on the limited-edition “1886” iteration and has been upgraded with an E-PowerXtra kit, meaning that the 80-kWh lithium-ion battery pack now delivers 422 HP and 830Nm of torque, taking the SUV from 0-62 MPH in just 4.9 seconds and onto its matched top speed of 112 MPH, which is all achieved in Sport Mode.

Brabus has also added a subtle aerodynamic body kit, Monoblock Z alloy wheels in both 20-inch and 21-inch offerings, and a rear spoiler. The exterior has also been given a wrap that mimics a circuit board — referencing the SUV’s electrified nature — while the interior can be customized with Brabus’ exclusive fine leather alongside various other unreleased updates synonymous with the tuning company.

For those looking to get their hands on a Brabus-equipped Mercedes-Benz EQC now, enquire online where you can submit an order for the Brabus visuals package, minus its performance upgrades, for a total cost of €120,000 EUR (approx. $136,000 USD).
