Smart Fortwo Electric Drive (2006 – 2014) At A Glance

2/5

+Good performance and reasonable range for an electric city-only car. Exempt from congestion charge and road tax. Cheap to run.

-Initially available as a business lease car only and the monthly rentals are a high £375pm.

With its diminuitive size and proven city car credentials the smart fortwo makes a sensible base for a pure electric vehicle.

The smart ed (electric drive) is powered by a rear mounted  30KW (40bhp) magneto-electric motor which produces 120Nm of torque. Drive is delivered through a single gear ratio to the rear wheels.

A full charge from empty takes eight hours and gives a theoretical range of 84 miles. The Tesla developed battery can be charged from any 220 Volt three -pin socket, providing it has a fuse.

Top-speed is limited to 62mph, so the smart ed isn’t suited to an out-of-town environment.
