Pure Highlights

Purposeful and beautiful, all in one.

The electric drive pure features the iconic smart body style, with a wide, athletic stance that provides ample space inside and excellent on-road performance. The two-tone color palette and LED daytime running lights are the icing on the cake.

Performance that pulls no punches.

It may be small, but it's got plenty of oomph. The lightweight frame and 60 kW motor result in 80 horsepower and 118 lb-ft of torque. Plus, its electric configuration provides that torque instantly to get you moving with purpose.

On the inside? Everything you need.

The interior features a 3.5" instrument cluster with all your electric stats, black fabric upholstery, Bluetooth connectivity, and a three-spoke multifunction steering wheel, all while efficiently maintaining a surprising level of spaciousness.

You can't be smart without being safe.

The smart fortwo electric drive pure 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, it's equipped with Crosswind Assist to detect strong gusts of wind and anti-lock brakes to give you maximum control, while the positioning of the battery in the vehicle's underbody offers increased protection if a collision occurs.

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 124 city MPGe and 108 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, 7.2 kw 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.
