New Smart electric drive range priced from £16,420

Smart has revealed the prices for its electric drive range, which is now on sale, starting from £16,420.

The Smart fortwo electric drive has a list price of £20,920, meaning the car cost just £16,420 with the £4,500 OLEV grant.

The forfour electric drive costs £16,915 with the grant.

There is also a fortwo cabriolet costing £18,650 (£23,060 excluding grant).

The Smart electric drive features an 81PS electric motor powering the rear wheels via a single-speed gearbox. The electric drive has a range of up to 100 miles, while its maximum speed is electronically limited to 80MPH to maximise the range.

A 7kW on-board charger means the smart electric drive can be charged in 2.5 hours using a 16A charger or in six hours via a standard three-pin household socket.

Specification includes heated front seats, cruise control, leather upholstery and 15-inch alloy wheels. Every electric drive model also comes with charging cables for both domestic sockets and public charging stations; rear parking sensors; smart media system with satellite navigation; and an acoustic ambient sound generator.

For £595 customers can add the premium plus equipment line, which includes ambient lighting; centre armrest; LED headlights and tail lights; front fog lamps; automatic lights and wipers; and rear view camera.

The electric drive design package is available from £595 and adds a tridion cell and mirror caps in electric green; body panels in either black or white with matching grille; 16-inch alloys; and ‘ED’ decals in grey.

A heated steering wheel, heated rear seats (forfour only) and additional door and cockpit insulation are part of the winter package, which costs £295 on fortwo models and £495 on the forfour.

Customers can also access the smart control app, which allows the user to view the vehicle’s charging status, and pre-set the climate control via a smartphone.

    I hope it will be available from all Smart dealers, not just a select few.
