Zero gas. Unlimited potential.

The smart fortwo electric drive prime cabrio is unlike any other electric car. Stylish and chic, it features unique amenities like the smart Lighting Package, black leather seats, and 15-inch wheels, all of which combine to make it the premier electric car on the road.

Prime Cabrio Highlights

electric prime cabrio headlights

Ready for the bright lights.

In the front, the prime cabrio features powerful fog lamps with cornering function so you can get a glimpse of the curvy roads ahead. In the back, honeycomb taillights for extra style. And on the inside, ambient lighting to set the mood.

The smart Media-System.

The smart Media-System makes it easy to view your charge level and energy flow.It also provides real-time traffic, voice control, and Android Auto smartphone integration.And when you stop on a dime, and throw it in reverse, the rearview camera has you covered.

Cool black leather interior.

The seats of the prime cabrio are coated in a lush black leather with white top-stitching. This gives it a refined visual look while adding to the overall comfort of the cabin.

prime cabrio soft top

Open or closed in 12 seconds flat.

The smart soft top fully converts with the flick of a switch. It's operational at any speed, with multiple settings for different levels of shade, and removable roof bars that fit neatly into a compartment in the rear for a true open-top driving experience.

Plus, it faces the same durability tests as Mercedes-Benz cabriolet tops. It's able to endure repeated exposure to automatic car washes, and multiple layers of fabric and a rear-glass window with defroster make this soft top hard to beat.

Take a ride on the sporty side.

Available on the passion and prime coupes, the smart Sport Package comes with knockout black-painted 16" wheels, a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel, and stainless steel pedals with rubber studs, all of which makes it a lean, mean, sporty machine.

You can't be smart without being safe.

The smart fortwo electric drive prime is engineered with Mercedes-Benz, and it's held to those safety standards. The patented Tridion Safety Cell is made of high-strength steel, with an energy-absorbing crumple zone to minimize impact. Plus, the cabrio adds additional reinforcements to the chassis and frame, and a "basket handle" bar for unmatched levels of drop-top safety.

It's also equipped with Crosswind Assist to detect strong gusts of wind, as well as anti-lock brakes and Electronic Stability Control to give you maximum handling, while the positioning of the battery in the vehicle's underbody offers increased protection if a collision occurs.

Electric Standards

Charge on the Go

All across the country, charging stations are popping up, which means less worry about long trips. And with apps like Plugshare and Chargepoint®, it's easier than ever to find them.

Farther for Less

MPGe stands for Miles Per Gallon Equivalent, and the smart fortwo electric drive excels in this area. With 112 city MPGe and 102 combined MPGe[3], it's the most efficient two-seater on sale[5], requiring less electricity to go farther[6], and minimizing your energy bill along the way.

Shorter Charge Times

With a new powerful, onboard charger that comes standard, you can go from 0-100% charge in just 3 hours using a 240-volt Level II charge system. Not only is that twice as fast as the old model, it puts smart among the fastest-charging electric vehicles on the planet. And if you're unsure about the equipment, don't worry, our smart dealers will get you all set up.

More Efficiency

For smart, wastefulness was always the enemy. So, it's no surprise that the electric drive comes with an ECO driving mode, designed to maximize range and turn the vehicle's kinetic energy into electric energy for the road ahead.

Plus, with pre-entry climate control, you can heat or cool your smart while charging, for even more energy efficiency.
