All-Electric smart ED to Go on Sale for €18,910 in Germany
The car is powered by a 30 kW (55 kW in peak) electric motor which draws juice from a 17.6kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which at first was developed by Tesla for Daimler, Smart’s parent company. The car has a top speed of 125 km/h (78 mph) and it reaches 60 km/h (37.5 mph) in 4.8 seconds after setting off, giving it decent poke - more than adequate for town driving. If driven carefully, the car’s theoretical maximum range is 145 km (90.6 miles).
It will be available as both a coupe and cabrio, with the topless variant costing €22,000 ($27,500). This price does not include the monthly €60 ($75) battery lease, however, the car can be ‘completely bought’, if the customer so requests, but prices are considerably higher, with the coupe ending up costing €23,770 ($29,600) and the cabrio model costing €26,770 ($33,500).
