Even though the EV has now made its official public debut in Malaysia, the local pricing for Smart #1 Brabus is still under wraps for now. However, Smart Malaysia has previously said that the price range for all three variants of Smart #1 ranges from RM200,000 to RM250,000 on-the-road not inclusive of insurance.
The Brabus flavour comes in several colour combinations such as the Meta Black/Radiant Red, Laser Red/Eclipse Black, Cyber Silver/Radiant Red, Cyber Silver/Eclipse Black, Digital White/Eclipse Black, and Atom Grey-Matte/Radiant Red. There is also an option to go full-on Atom Grey-Matte.

Featuring a dual-motor all-wheel drive setup, the Smart #1 Brabus has a total output of 315kW (422hp) alongside 543Nm of torque. This allows it to go from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.9 seconds which matches its status as a Brabus vehicle.
In terms of battery, it still carries the same 66kWh battery pack as per the Premium version. Since it has a much higher performance, the WLTP-rated range of Brabus model is slightly shorter at 400km as opposed to the Premium’s 440km.
When it comes to charging, it takes less than three hours to charge the EV from 10 to 80% via its onboard 22kW AC charger. On the other hand, a 150kW DC fast charger can reduce that charging time to under 30 minutes.
