was optimistic, as it turns out. Smart has confirmed that UK will need to find a little bit more at least to silently drive away in a ED. Alternatively, there is the option to pay for the car and its battery, by choosing a SaleCare that costs from up front plus 55 per month

Even with the lease buyers will still to find their own electric car of course, but at least charging the should be pleasantly cheap.

The Cabrio edition of the car, will cost from outright a 1,500 premium the tin-topped car or 13,400 plus 55 month which oddly is 1,125 extra.

I m not sure these prices are cheap enough to see the sparky Smart sell in hot-cake but they are sufficient to make the Nissan Leaf seem optimistic.

Electric cars can make but widespread adoption will time and possibly a big hoik in the of petrol as well.

Those who do the plunge will find the electric Smart is reassuringly to drive if a little fidgety and all the way up to a useful maximum of 78mph. range is 90 miles, and recharging the lithium-ion battery can take six from an ordinary 3kW three-pin Recharging from flat in one hour is possible using a wallbox or public fast but requires some beefed up electronics that cost a 2,650 extra.

Other options include a noise generator, requiring 155 and a altruistic streak, while 380 buy an assistance pack providing control, a leather steering and a pair of wheel paddles don t shift gear but instead the battery regeneration level slowing down. The distinctive Electric Drive colour meanwhile, is a 600 option.
