electric highlights Ahead of the times, and the traffic Going electric doesn’t mean sacrificing performance. In fact, it means the opposite. Unlike gas cars, electric cars deliver power to your wheels instantly, with no lag time, as soon as you step on the pedal. The result is greater torque and acceleration. Unlike gas cars, electric cars deliver power to your wheels instantly, with no lag time, as soon as you hit on the pedal. A regenerative braking system The smart electric coupe features a regenerative braking system, so every time you slow down to turn a corner or stop at a red light, the electric motor turns that kinetic energy into electric energy, adding charge to your battery for when you need it most. This means that every time you slow down, the electric motor turns kinetic energy into electric energy for the vehicle. For making a smooth escape City life is hectic enough, so take comfort in the silent hum of your smart electric coupe. The lack of noise is a result of the magneto-electric motor, which is super lightweight with a small number of components, keeping maintenance costs to a minimum.

(video) More Smart Electric Drive Review The Smart ED is cute and cool The latest version of tiny two-seat city car is a vast improvement over Smart’s previous all-electric versions. Measuring just over 106 inches from tip to tail, and a shade under 62 inches tall and wide, the Smart ForTwo Electric Drive is small enough to occupy the smallest of spaces. And it’s the only EV available with a convertible top.

The second generation was introduced in 2009 to 18 markets with the objective to gather experience about how customers use and charge electric vehicles. Daimler initially planned to build 1,000 vehicles, but as demand exceeded the company’s expectations, more than 2,000 Smart Fortwo electric drive cars were produced. The electric cars were available for leasing or through the Car2Go carsharing service in San Diego, Amsterdam and Vancouver. Production of the second-generation Smart Fortwo electric drive began in November 2009 in Smartville, Hambach, France. The Smart EDs have a lithium-ion battery provided by Tesla Motors with capacity of 14 kilowatt-hours (50 MJ). The range of a fully charged battery is up to 135 kilometres (84 miles) under the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) cycle.

The Smart Fortwo electric drive, or smart ed, is a battery electric vehicle variant of the Smart Fortwo city car, formerly marketed as the Smart Fortwo EV. Field testing began in London with 100 units in 2007. The second generation was introduced in 2009 and was available in 18 markets around the world for leasing or through the Car2Go carsharing service in selected cities, with over 2,300 units delivered. A near production version was unveiled at the September 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.

For 2016, Smart totally remade the gas-fueled ForTwo, giving it additional power and interior space, and a more aggressive overall look. The Smart Electric will receive its makeover in late 2016, starting with the 2017 model. There isn’t yet any word on changes to the drivetrain or range of the EV, but it’s reasonable to expect that any updates to the internal combustion 2016 ForTwo will mostly be extend to the 2017 electric model—and that any generational update of an electric car will bring at least a little more driving range on a single charge.

Considering an energy consumption of 39 kilowatt-hours per 100 miles (22 MJ/km) and a conversion factor of 33.7 kW·h of electricity being the energy equivalent of a US gallon of gasoline (32 megajoules to the litre), the US Environmental Protection Agency officially rated the Smart ED combined fuel economy at 87 miles per gallon gasoline equivalent (mpg-e) (2.7 L gasoline equivalent/100 km; 104 mpg-imp gasoline equivalent), 94 mpg‑US (2.5 L/100 km; 113 mpg‑imp) city and 79 mpg‑US (3.0 L/100 km; 95 mpg‑imp) highway. EPA’s official all-electric range is 63 miles (101 km), but in favorable conditions in an urban environment at warm temperatures the carmaker claims the Smart Fortwo ED can reach up to 98 miles (158 km). According to Forbes, the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy ranked the Smart ForTwo Electric Drive the “greenest” car for 2014.

The Smart Fortwo Electric Drive is one of the electric models that still has a relatively small driving range — 68 miles (109 kilometers). Presumably, a coming version will have much more range, as will an electric Smart Forfour — which may or may not be coming to the US, a matter we haven’t seen confirmation of yet.

The ED, despite its unfortunate name, checks all the boxes a city-based electric car should to be competitive in the growing crop of EVs. And the 2017 Smart ED makes a handy tape measure for the advancement of electric-car tech: The original one we tested in 2011 needed 23.4 seconds to get to 60 mph, topped out at 63 mph, and leased for $599 a month. Now, it has evolved into the one EV that’s based on a gas-powered car that turns out to be the better choice, so long as you’re coming at it from a dedicated urban-use perspective.

Deliveries of the third-generation Smart began in the U.S. and Europe from May 2013, and Smart plans to mass-produce the electric car with availability in 30 markets worldwide. More than 8,800 units of the second and third generation Smart ED have been sold in North America and Europe between 2009 and June 2014, of which, over 6,500 units are third generation variants.

A full charge from empty to full of the Smart’s 17.6 kWh battery pack takes about five to six hours—twice as long as it would if Daimler, the manufacturer of Smart vehicles, had equipped the car with the 6.6-kW industry standard. On top of that drawback, the Smart Electric Drive does not have a port to access Quick Charging at public charging stations.

The company sent Smart dealers a memo about the discontinuation of the gas version: “Developments within the micro-car segment present some challenges for the current Smart product portfolio,” it read. “As a result, Smart will discontinue sales of the gasoline powered Smart Fortwo and Fortwo Cabrio for the US and Canadian markets after model year 2017.”

In July 2011, Car2Go announced the deployment of a fleet of Smart EDs into carsharing service in San Diego before the end of 2011. The company stated that the carsharing electric cars will have a range of 84 miles (135 km), and, based on their experience with usage in other cities, they will most likely need to be recharged every two or three days. When reserving the electric car online, San Diego Car2Go members are able to see the battery’s state of charge, so if the customer wants to go for an extended drive, the option is available to find the right car for that trip.
