Reduced to the electric drive

"Reduce to the max": the voluntary self-limitation on the really essence of the small Smart came more than 20 years ago a big hit and has set the auto world on its head. Although no other car was reduced as radically as the colorful Bonsai-Benz, but really successful, he was never – and diluted the Swabians have the concept with powerful engines and new models up to four doors also.

However, after Mercedes-Benz has given the sole authority over the city car line and the successor for the year 2022, together with Geely in China, on the other, they return to the finish back straight again to the old consequence. Because if in these days, prices starting from 26'400 Swiss francs for the Fortwo, 27'400 Swiss francs for the Forfour and 30'of 100 francs for the cabriolet is the revised Generation at the Start, then it's less about what is there in future. But interesting what will be in the future is: the petrol engine.

range and speed fit

While the large brands and also the mother of Mercedes, the farewell to the burners, although talk, but one or the other decade of the time want to make the most of the Smart nails with heads and pan as the first and so far the only traditional brand on the electric drive. And of course, the E-drive will fit on the Smart better than many other cars. The Nicolas Hayek knew in 1994 he founded, together with the Stuttgart-based car maker, Micro Compact Car AG in Biel. Because due to the tiny turning circle, you will feel in the Fortwo anyway, as in the bumper cars and the driving, finally, electric.

In the case of Smart to make nails with heads and pan as the first and so far the only traditional brand on the electric drive.

at Least as gratifying as The newly revised Smart with the E-drive finally the annoying Chatter of the three-cylinder engine is a thing of the past. And because the Smart is driven almost exclusively in town, bothers no one in the modest driving performance. Maximum Speed 130? Loose enough for today. From 0 to 100 km/h in just twelve seconds? "Who cares", would say Roger Schawinski, but driving a Tesla.

Important it is for a maximum of 60 kW of power, but the best 160 Nm of torque, with just under 1100 kg easy game and for a spontaneous commencement of the worries are not. The 4.8 seconds from 0 to 60 km/h to hear, and especially feel so much better than the nearly 12 seconds to 100 kph.

Even with the modest range, under these conditions life. After all, who actually moves only in the city, comes with the standard value of 159 kilometers locker about half of the work week. Only the Store itself is annoying because it takes a disproportionately long time: Even with the nearly 1000-Euro 22 kW charger it will take 40 minutes from 10 to 80 percent. As more modern competitors such as the Mini electric or the Opel Corsa-E are much faster on the road.

Ideal Carsharing App

While Smart with the waiver of the burners to keep the changes, otherwise, in narrow limits: From the outside, above all, a retouched front apron with a serious look and a different Design for Two - and four-door models, as well as documenting a lights that make the difference. And inside there is a Update for the Infotainment, but also the promised Smartphone Integration does not change the fact that the analog instruments and slow Navigation act today as of yesterday. Not to mention the Rest of the infotainment completely.

the digitization is the developers, no strangers. However, because Software Changes in the car, lack of money and possibilities, so go wild with the Apps to the vehicle. So you can Charge not only of the Apple Watch from taxes, but can even launch his private car sharing. Because you can open the car with a Code on the Smartphone and start, it can easily be in the circle of friends and family to share. Only the Parking space finder with real-time information from underground garages and probabilities for all the road trains would save Because if there is a car for which you can always find a place, then it is Smart.
