Let’s say you wanted fast, sporty and electric to your buddies at the local Hot den but you don’t have an extra to blow – what do you do? Well, if you two seats and a similar type of packs used by Tesla, about a Smart Fortwo Okay, it’s not particularly and it won’t go very far past 70 at least it’s chic.

I wasn’t kidding about the connection as Tesla Motors a little while back it will supply electric packs and chargers to Daimler AG for an version of the Smart car – and here it is.

In of the hamster-spinning-the-wheel gas engine (a 70 horsepower engine), a 30 kW drive motor and kWh lithium-ion batteries take its Like most modern vehicles, the Smart Fortwo has a limited range; in this it’s about 80 miles. takes about eight using a 220V outlet.

If you want eighty percent of a (from about twenty remaining battery) it will about three and a half

Using standard 110V – it about a day.

Performance is not the experience the Tesla is. In fact, slower than a gas powered Fortwo. Still, on the torrid of Fontana, California it drove through traffic.

I dare say – electric version of the Fortwo had a ride too. Yup, the weight of the battery pack over 200 lbs) sitting on the of the vehicle helped smooth out is otherwise a jarring ride.

There was no problem merging and street traffic.

Air conditioning well and the fully electric steering was as good as the unit in the gas version. Stereo worked (although the acoustics in the phone-booth-sized is mediocre at best) and all secondary feel just as well as the regular Smart. The only difference had to be some of the electric regarding voltage use and battery

Like many electric the Smart Fortwo Electric has a one-speed-like transmission and is whisper I enjoyed using an electric stealth to sneak up on (deserving) bicyclist riding poorly. the Smart is far too small to load a within, bike-racks are available, other racks.


I’m not a huge fan of the Smart Fortwo as it to out-charm nearly every – but I do like the electric setup. it’s the notion that easy to drive, easy to vehicle has a better motivator in its variant. Or, perhaps it’s the that it shares some with the fabulous Tesla.

way, it’s a better car the gas version.
