Help! I'm looking for information on the gasoline-powered smart Fortwo with an internal combustion engine. Where can I get a gasoline smart Fortwo?

    As of 2017, new gasoline powered smart Fortwo vehicles are no longer imported into the United States. We encourage you to give the electric smart a try or reach out to us about pre-owned gasoline models not listed online. 


How Far Does A smart EQ Fortwo Go On a Charge?

To find out how EV-range responds to your driving style, please take a no-obligation extended test drive and experience the smart Fortwo Electric Drive for yourself. Current owners report ranges of 70-80 miles. We'd love to hear your feedback after your drives. 

Like gas mileage, electric car driving range will depend on a variety of factors like personal driving style, weather, road conditions and other factors.  Maximum EPA recorded range is 40% higher than the listed figures. The EPA's official window-sticker range of the smart EQ Fortwo Coupe is 63 city miles, 50 highway miles, and 58 miles when driving 45% highway speeds and 55% city speeds.

The smart EQ Fortwo was tested by the EPA and was recorded as having a maximum range of 105.9 city miles or 84.4 highway miles under ideal conditions. This led the EPA to estimate 96.3 miles of 45% highway driving and 55% city driving. Turning on ECO-mode could further increase these distances. These ideal EPA results were reduced by 40% to get the official window sticker ranges listed above. The official EPA ranges include the 40% reduction which is meant to take into account different driving styles, weather, road conditions, and other factors that will decrease range. We encourage you to experience the smart EQ Fortwo for yourself and see how your driving style affects the range.

How Long Does The smart EQ Fortwo Take To Charge?

The smart EQ Fortwo can charge at a typical 120V household outlet or at an optional  240V Level 2 charging station. 

The smart EQ Fortwo can recharge fully in as little as 3 hours on a 240V 30A outlet. The battery can be "topped off" at any point so it is unlikely an owner would drain the battery to empty and need a full 3 hours to ever recharge. 

A 120V outlet can also be used to fully recharge the vehicle in 16.5-21 hours depending on the Amps used. The battery can be "topped off" at any point so it is unlikely an owner would drain the battery to empty and need a full recharge. Similar to a smartphone, the smart car can be plugged in while the driver is sleeping or at work to recharge when the car is not in use.
