ANSWERS TO THE 3 MOST POPULAR QUESTIONS: 

How Far Does A smart Fortwo Electric Drive Go?

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 Fortwo Electric Drive Coupe is 63 city miles, 50 highway miles, and 58 miles when driving 45% highway speeds and 55% city speeds.

The smart Fortwo ED 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 Fortwo Electric Drive for yourself and see how your driving style affects the range.
