New Smart Electric Vehicle

 

The Smart EV is designed to bring a breath of fresh air to the streets.  Itís the natural product of smartís unswerving commitment to the environment and innovation and not to mention fun.  It isnít available to buy just yet, but it isnít a million miles off.

Think of a fortwo. Then think of an electric socket concealed behind what used to be the fuel cap. Picture the complete absence of exhaust fumes, so no CO2 emissions from the rear.  Close your eyes and hearÖ no sound at all coming from the engine. Imagine no engine oil, no road tax, and no London congestion charge and youíll start to get a sense of what really makes the new smart ev tick.



Powered solely by electricity, the smart ev can achieve the equivalent of 300 mpg Ė that amounts to a saving of up to 80% in fuel costs over the already highly economical smart fortwo. The ev can travel up to 71 miles between charges, which typically take around 5 hours, ideal for charging at work between your morning and evening commutes.

The first 200 smart evís are being leased exclusively to blue chip companies who are happy to meet smart's requirements to power the cars using only renewable energy sources.

Whatís more, the ev hasnít had to sacrifice any of the fortwoís performance or class-leading equipment: expect the full complement of Mercedes-Benz safety features and a top speed of 70 mph courtesy of a powerful Zytek electric motor. Once itís up to speed (0-30mph in an impressive 6.5 seconds) the ev uses its tiny weight gain to deliver an exciting and stable drive.

So there you have it: a zero emission vehicle that is 100% smart; a car that will save money and the environment.  Although the smart ev wonít be available to the public just yet, itís definitely something smart are working on.
