The New 2017 Smart ForTwo Electric
|   Wednesday, July 05, 2017
An electric Smart is perhaps the most accessible car Netherlands. Not to own but to drive. Holders of car2go subscription know all about. Of course he's just sales, though the electric Smart for today from the previous generation. That is now changing, and it is also a first electrical Forfour. Because Smart does not have to be big I take the ForTwo Electric Drive along for a 'short' driving impression.

When starting is that the Smart Fortwo wants to be a normal car.
No sooner had I started an electric vehicle with a 'normal' key (instead of a button), so that's a special sensation. Also in the drive gives the ForTwo Electric Drive not typical electric driving experience. So the car slows down gradually as you release the 'accelerator' and you have to use the brake pedal just like in a car engine. Many other electric cars are largely only to ride the 'accelerator' because they strongly engine braking to recover energy.

Of course, the Smart also stores a large proportion of the braking energy back neatly into the battery. For this look the car (from version Passion) with a radar ahead, and choose Save, based on the traffic image for more power and longer roll without consumption. In practice, the operation of this system only subtly noticeable.

Compliment concept

Typically for an electric car is readily available traction when you touch the accelerator, and that's the smart no different. The car is going to be governed, but quickly run off and thus drives exactly as it looks. The electric powertrain also seems to be the best compliment to the concept of Smart. It makes him - in practice - the fastest, smoothest and cleanest of the family.

The advantage of a city car that is not large and therefore require heavy batteries. A huge driving range is indeed less relevant. With a battery capacity of 17.6 kWh you should be able to cover up to 160 km, although previously it required a lot of self-control. With its solid suspension and fine control invites the town-map into a smooth above average driving style.

The actual "test consumption ', the range would be about 100 kilometers, in practice, is 120 kilometers realistic. I give you to do it in one day as many kilometers without city (yourself) to recharge.

Small difference

The Smart Fortwo Electric Drive is from 23 466 euros. The Forfour was only a few hundred euros more expensive and depends from 23 843 euro to your outlet. Things like automatic air conditioning and an audio system with Bluetooth support are standard for luxury Smart offers the familiar packages.
