Leave it to Brabus to tease us with something that N.A. will never see.

A 25% increase in HV battery capacity within the same footprint is huge!

Could add some life to our dead MY17 smart walking?

Not much of a surprise that it could be done. Since the engineering of the 451 battery pack, energy densities have gone up and mass per energy has gone down. Keeping the same footprint, it should be possible to get nearly twice the capacity of the current pack in a low performance version. I'm sure there's space devoted to cooling the HV battery as there will be a fair amount of heat generated by releasing 150 kw from just a 22 kwh battery.

I'd buy one!
