Based on the iconic smart fortwo, and available in coupe and cabriolet body styles, the 2014 smart fortwo electric drive has the smallest footprint of any car on U.S. roads and represents a key step in sustainable transportation.
The 2014 smart fortwo electric drive is powered by a magneto-electric motor that's installed between the rear wheels in place of the conventional engine. Because electric motors create instant high torque, the car uses a single gear instead of a multiple-gear transmission. As a result, there's no need for shifting -- a major advantage especially in dense city traffic. To back up, the electric motor is simply run in the opposite direction.
In the new generation of the smart fortwo electric drive, an EM-motive (joint venture between Bosch and Daimler) 55-kilowatt electric motor provides 35 kilowatts of continuous power that translates to 96 lb.-ft. of torque. In its kickdown mode, the motor can generate peak power of 55 kilowatts for about two minutes. This power provides acceleration from zero to 60 mph in less than 12 seconds, and a top speed of more than 78 mph.
Neatly hidden under the floor, the lithium-ion battery from the Daimler subsidiary Deutsche ACCUmotive in the smart fortwo electric drive provides 17.6 kilowatt-hours of electrical power, with an efficiency of 110 watt hours per kilogram.
The all-new smart electric drive achieves 122 city MPGe, or miles per gallon gasoline equivalent.
A stylish car that clearly stands out from the crowd, its small size makes for nimble movement and easy parking, especially for people who commute through or live in congested areas.
Mercedes-Benz safety experts designed the smart fortwo to excel in collisions with larger vehicles. It has endured extensive crash testing and meets all U.S. motor vehicle safety standards.
