everything's the same. only totally different.
For decades, we've been asked if smarts were electric. The answer wasn't “no,” it was “not yet.” You see; smarts were always destined to favor the plug over the pump. So going electric meant simply keeping our best features and ditching our less-than-desirable ones. Say adios to oil. Kiss the tailpipe ta-ta. (On second thought, just wave to the tailpipe). And say hello to watts of fun.
floor the fun pedal.
Let's talk about the gas pedal. If a car runs on electricity, you can't really call it a gas pedal anymore, right? So we've dubbed it the fun pedal. It's what makes everything “go” inside our smoothest, zippiest, most head-turning-est smart ever.
it's not cheesy being green.
Conserving the environment? Woo hoo! Driving a conservative-looking car? Womp womp. That's why the smart electric drive, like every smart, is endlessly customizable – from vehicle wraps to tridion cells to mirrors and more. Want us to cover your smart in photos of your cat? We'll do it. Seriously, try us.
give mother nature a high-five.
Guess how many electric cars are available in a cabriolet? Here's a hint: we're the only one. Our convertible roof can be opened in seconds, even while you're bolting down the highway. Because all electric cars promise to help you save the environment, but we want to help you bask in it, too.
plug in. peel out.
Here's the bad news: You won't get to rev your engine anymore. Here's the good news: You won't ever have to. The smart electric drive's single-gear transmission means instant torque and smooth, dare-we-say-sexy acceleration. It's punk rock attitude with an R&B delivery.
Pair that with smart's classic compact size and tight turning radius, and you'll be pouring milk down the drain just for an excuse to drive to the store.
dump the pump.
Need fuel for your smart electric drive? Try your garage. Or your patio. Or that random outlet on the side of the house that you only used once during a BBQ. They'll all work just fine, because any household socket can be a charging station, fueling the 17.6kWh battery for a range of 68 gas-free miles per charge combined.
Or, install a 240-volt Bosch Keba station to charge up twice as fast. In case you haven't noticed, “fast” is starting to become a theme around here.learn more >
safety is in our genes.
When you're engineered by the world's leading safety pioneers at Mercedes-Benz, not much else needs to be said. But we'll go ahead anyway. Eight airbags, standard, crash management system, standard. Electronic Stability Program (ESP®), standard. The world's only high-strength steel tridion safety cell that can withstand up to 9,000 pounds of force, standard.
Plus, the battery's position in the vehicle underbody offers the best possible protection in the event of a collision. Because if you're helping to protect the Earth, you deserve to feel protected, too.
its only emission is fun.
Once you lose the gas station's number, we've got some great ones to replace it: 122 city MPGe†. 93 MPGe† highway. A combined range of 107 MPGe†, all via the juice from your household electrical socket. No oil changes, no gear shifting, and oh yeah, no emissions. And a customizable body that offers literally tens of thousands of ways to say, "There's only one Earth. And there's only one me."
Pretty tough to find a number you don't like in there. But here's one more: At $25,000*, the smart electric drive is the most affordable all-electric vehicle in the U.S.‡ Your move, everyone else.
