Egon Brütsch Fahrzeugbau, usually shortened to Brütsch, was a German automotive design and automaker based in Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg. Brütsch were best known for producing a large number of different microcar designs, but only produced small numbers of each design and the primary function of the company appears to have been that of the development and promotion of each design to sell licences to manufacture to other companies.

dbo:abstract
  • Brütsch ist der Name eines ehemaligen deutschen Herstellers von Kleinstwagen. Egon Brütsch, Sohn eines erfolgreichen Stuttgarter Strumpffabrikanten, war ein Motorrad- und Automobilrennfahrer. Ab 1951 baute er Kleinwagen mit Kunststoffkarosserien. In den Jahren 1929 bis 1931 bestritt Brütsch Motorradrennen und zwischen 1935 und 1950 nahm er mit teilweise selbstgebauten Autos an Rennen teil. Anfang der 1950er Jahre begann er mit dem Bau von Kleinstwagen mit Kunststoffkarosserien. Das erste Fahrzeug, das er baute, war ein Maserati im Maßstab 1 : 2; ein Kinderauto zum Preis von 750 DM. Nach Aufgabe der Autokonstruktionen begann Egon Brütsch mit dem Bau von kleinen Kunststoffhäusern in Kugelform und anderen Fertighäusern; er gilt als einer der Pioniere im Bau von Fertighäusern in Holzverbundbauweise. Mehrere Patente auf die Verbindungstechnik von Fertighauselementen sind ihm erteilt worden. (de)

Between 1952 and 1958, eleven different models of car were manufactured by Brütsch, but the total production of all models by the company is believed to be only eighty-one cars. Many of the bodywork designs were simple two-piece mouldings of polyester reinforced with fiberglass, bonded at a waistline join, which was then covered by a protective strip. Chassis and suspension design was very rudimentary and after a misguided court action in 1956 by Brütsch against a licensee, at least one of Brütsch's designs was condemned as dangerous.The abbreviated chassis used on the majority of the cars meant that for structural integrity they could not have doors and all these models had low sides to facilitate entry and exit.
