The Smart EQ fortwo cabrio is an all-electric city car. It replaced the Smart Electric Drive models. Smart announced in March 2018 that electric versions of the smart fortwo and smart forfour would be rebranded as the smart EQ. Both the coupe and cabrio electric drive models lost the electric drive badges and received smart EQ badges in their place and updated graphics in the optional smart Media-System.
You really must experience for yourself how much fun electric mobility can be. With full torque on tap right from the very first turn of the motor and seamless acceleration, the smart EQ fortwo is more agile than ever – and virtually silent into the bargain.
One gear is all you need. For any speed. This makes a smart even easier to operate as an electric car. The ECO button activates ECO mode, offering a number of energy-saving functions – all in the interest of increased range.
Variety of paint colours. Electric cars often lack colour. Not so with smart: you can always combine two colours. There are just so many possibilities - one electric smart rarely looks quite like another.
Recurrent features such as the dynamic sweep or the honeycomb pattern are smart hallmarks. Generously proportioned fabric-upholstered surfaces create an atmosphere to make you feel at home – and that offers something a bit different to the staid monotony of other electric cars. The dashboard instrument with battery charge status and power indicator displays the data relevant for electric driving to the driver: the recuperated energy and energy currently used, the available power and the battery charge status.
An intelligent system from higher vehicle categories: when you take your foot off the pedal, the electric car goes into recuperation mode, regaining energy in the process. With radar-based recuperation, the traffic situation is additionally monitored using a radar sensor, and the ideal recuperation level to suit the current situation is selected.
Added range at the push of a button: Eco mode activates a number of energy-saving functions on your electric vehicle. Maximum recuperation, reduced cooling/heating output, a reduced top speed and a flatter accelerator curve – all in the interests of increased range.
The smart EQ fortwo is equipped as standard with a powerful 4.6 kW on-board charger. To recharge, simply connect your electric vehicle to a wallbox or a public charging station. You can also use virtually any standard domestic power socket for charging. In addition to charging at a wallbox, the electric smart vehicles equipped with the 22 kW on-board charger with fast-charging function can alternatively be charged at a domestic power socket. The charging time of the fast charger at a domestic power socket is longer, on account of the lower efficiency compared to the standard charger. At public charging stations or a wallbox, your smart EQ fortwo is charged from 10 to 80% in under 3.5 hours. The optionally available 22 kW on-board charger is even faster. With this option, you can charge the battery at a charging station or wallbox from 10 to 80% in less than 45 minutes.
