With torque of 130 Nm immediately available the smart fortwo electric drive accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 11.5 seconds. And not only is it virtually noiseless, it also boasts constant power delivery.
The smart fortwo electric drive has a top speed of 78 mph. More than enough for the city – and just right for driving in urban areas.
The smart fortwo electric drive has a kickdown function for situations in road traffic when you need extra power for a short time. As soon as the accelerator pedal is pressed right down the electric motor gives you an extra power boost – perfect for overtaking.
You can charge the smart fortwo electric drive at any standard 230 V domestic socket. It must have a 16 A fuse. With the standard 3.3 kW on-board charger, the battery can be fully recharged in around seven hours. Partial charging is also possible at any time.Legal note:The manufacturer smart reserves the right to effect structural or design modifications or colour changes to the charging cable.
Charging is even faster with the optional 22 kW on-board charger in combination with a quick charging station, i.e. with a wallbox* or at a public charging station. Then a full charge only takes around one hour.However, even with the standard 3.3 kW on-board charger the charging time from 0-100% at a wallbox* is reduced by 20% compared with a domestic socket – to approximately 6 hours.
* In addition to the wallbox you need an appropriate AC power cable and appropriate interior wiring. smart provides the complete wallbox service consisting of consultation, infrastructure examination and installation together with the specialist cooperation partner SPX. Any authorised smart dealer can arrange contact with SPX.

How far can you travel on a battery charge? Simply enter your address and find out:
Return trip (approx. 2 x 70 km*)
Single trip (approx. 145 km*)
The map shown serves as visualisation only and does not correspond to the exact range of a smart fortwo electric drive battery charge. A radius of 145 km as the crow flies is all that is shown. Topography, thermal conditions and the individual driving style that could influence the actual range are not considered.
With a range up to 90 miles (NEDC) the smart fortwo electric drive is not only perfect for everyday driving – a single battery charge also gives you enough energy for spontaneous trips.
In deceleration mode and during braking, the electric motor works as a generator that converts part of the surplus kinetic energy into electrical energy. This then flows back into the battery and increases the range.
Driving with electricity is not only easier on the environment, but also on your pocket. This is because the smart fortwo electric drive consumes only 15.1 or 13.8 kWh per 62 miles (100km), depending on whether the battery is recharged at a domestic socket or a wallbox. The consumption stated is calculated from the electricity consumed during driving and also charge losses. Depending on the electricity price this is considerably cheaper than using fossil fuels.
The lithium-ion battery in the smart fortwo electric drive was developed by Deutsche ACCUmotive, a Daimler AG subsidiary specially set up to develop and produce batteries. The lithium-ion battery consists of 93 single cells and offers numerous advantages: it has a very high energy density and partial charging is possible at any time – because lithium-ion batteries have no memory effect which means that the range is not reduced.
With sale&care a pre-defined battery capacity is guaranteed for the whole term of the contract. Should the capacity fall below the guaranteed level, the battery will be replaced.
Based on findings from the research project LiBRI (Lithium Ionen Batterie Recycling Initiative), in cooperation with suppliers and disposal partners a four-stage concept was developed to enable the recovery of the valuable materials:ReUse: If possible, the battery is reused. Cleaning and the replacement of wear parts can lengthen the service life.
RePair: A more in-depth repair stage where individual modules of the battery system are replaced.ReManufacturing: Comprises the full disassembly of the battery. Following the examination and replacement of components the battery system is reassembled.ReMat: Valuable materials are recycled and re-enter the cycle.

Needless to say, the smart fortwo electric drive shares the smart fortwo's innovative safety concept. Active and passive safety systems offer maximum protection for the minimal length of 2.69 metres. The tridion safety cell: In a collision the impact energy is distributed evenly and effectively. The safety system esp®:When the vehicle is in danger of skidding, the electronic stability programme (esp®) brakes specific individual wheels in order to prevent the car from breaking away.
The safety system abs:The anti-lock braking system (abs) ensures that the vehicle remains steerable and stays on track even when braking sharply.Full-size front airbags: In a frontal impact two full-size front airbags offer maximum protection for the driver and passenger.Head/thorax side airbags:A standard feature in the smart fortwo electric drive, the head/thorax side airbags protect the head and chest in the event of a side-on impact. Additional safety is offered by the robust steel door structure.
Steel deformation elements at the front and rear absorb the energy from minor collisions at low speeds, ensuring that the tridion safety cell itself remains undamaged. A damaged crash box is subsequently simple to replace.
Position.The position in the vehicle underbody offers maximum protection in the event of a collision. What's more, the low centre of gravity enhances vehicle handling and cornering stability.Thermal safety.In addition to the voltage and the state of charge, the battery temperature is also constantly monitored. It is cooled or heated by the thermal management system to ensure optimum performance whatever the weather.
Mechanical safety.Should an accident ever occur, the high-voltage elements are automatically disconnected. A very effective protective mechanism.Watertight.Whether you go through a car wash or experience a sudden cloudburst – nothing's a problem for the watertight battery. Wetness will do it no harm at all.
The electric motor has a lightweight design and is fitted compactly in the rear of the vehicle. It uses magnetic force and the principle of electric permanent polarity change to generate kinetic energy.
Unlike a combustion engine, the electric motor consists of only a small number of components that display virtually no wear. This means much less maintenance with no need to change the oil or to replace spark plugs, toothed belts or belt pulleys.
An innovation to move the world that doesn't cost the earth. This is why smart has teamed up with Mercedes-Benz Financial Services to offer you affordable, carefree access to electric mobility. Just ask at your smart center.
The smart fortwo electric drive is full of ideas to make your journey even more pleasant. The best example: pre-entry climate control. You can heat up or cool down the interior even before you set off. Of course you also benefit from all the comforts that a smart fortwo offers anyway – such as the unusually generous legroom.
A further advantage of the electric drive is its smooth running. The interior of the smart fortwo electric drive is therefore always pleasantly quiet.
Electric motors need neither a clutch nor gearshift. This means immediate acceleration and relaxed driving without any gear shifting.
