The electric drive range, including the smart fortwo, smart fortwo cabrio and smart forfour, were praised for their city car capabilities with the fortwo having a tighter turning circle (6.95 metres) than that of a black cab.
Next Green Cars commented: “Already considered very capable city cars, the smart line-up is made better still with the addition of an electric powertrain. Perfect to nip in and out of traffic in, the electric smart line-up –fortwo ed, fortwo cabrio ed, and forfour ed – makes a great choice for local trips.”
The smart electric drive has a range of up to 100 miles when its 17.6 kWh lithium-ion battery is fully charged, making it ideal for urban use. In 2018 a 22 kW on-board charger will be available as standard, meaning the battery can be charged from 20 per cent to 80 per cent in under an hour using a wallbox with a three-phase connection or one of the many public charging stations available. The smart fortwo cabrio electric drive is the only electric cabriolet currently on sale.
The Next Green Car Awards recognises the best green cars on the market in the UK.
Prices start at £20,920 for the smart fortwo with the smart fortwo cabrio costing £23,060 and the smart forfour at £21,415. For more information on the smart and the electric drive range, please visit: https://www.sandown-group.co.uk/offers/smart-fortwo-electric-drive/9741/smart/offerdetail.aspx
