smart ForTwo Electric Test Drive Review
What you see behind me is probably the car that most American’s would not want to be seen driving. But then again there are those who care about the environment, those who want to save money by cutting out gasoline entirely, and those who just want a good deal. The SMART ForTwo Electric Drive lease fits into all of those categories.
Most American males would probably rather drive Pontiac Aztec, or a Mitsubishi MiEV, or something hideous around town rather than to be seen in a smart car. Why? Because we are brainwashed into thinking a car is an extension of our masculinity. But over in Europe cars are just a form of transportation so a vehicle like the smart car with its excellent gas mileage, low cost, and small size is perfect. Now I am secure enough in my manhood (I think) to roll this car around for a bit. Really I look good no matter what I drive. I mean I grew this Hollywood beard to take some of the focus off the car.
Now there are actually a couple of reasons why this car should be on your radar. If you are looking at the subcompact market, you need a city car to fit into tight parking spots, or if you are a tight wad penny pincher just looking for a green ev. Think about this fact too. Most Americans commute to work by themselves, and in California we have this cool HOV lane for carpoolers. Most the time it’s empty. Well with a Smart fortwo electric you can get one of those cool white stickers to allow you access to the carpool lane without getting hassled by the fuzz. There is no better feeling then zipping by gridlocked traffic with nothing but an empty lane ahead of you.1) The biggest thing this smart car has going for it has to do with is evident by this little decal. It’s a plug if you are wondering. This is the smart fortwo electric drive. That’s right pure electricity…ouch it’s shocking! Think about it…..if you have something like solar panels you could charge this car for free every day. Even without panels you would be paying $1 or $2 per charge.2) The price – at $25k the smart electric drive isn’t very cheap considering what new cars can cost now a days. But in the world of electric cars where the Honda Fit EV tops $36k or the FIAT 500e goes for $31k, the Smart fortwo electric seems like a bargain at $25k. Its closest rival is the Spark EV which is only a grand more. So yes that seems like a lot of scribble for a car that can only go 70 miles or so at a time. But when you tack on the $7500 federal tax credit and you state EV rebate, this can chop a big portion of the price down. Then there is the Battery Assurance Plan which costs $80 per month but knocks $5k off the price of the car (not sure how that works?) Or you can lease the car and apply the rebates to your lease amount resulting in a monthly payment of less than $150 bucks per month.

Smart says “ride the lighting” “feel the power” “taste the electricity” “shockingly fun to drive” I don’t know about all that but we will soon find out Where the regular smart car has a puny 1.0 liter engine that make 70 horsepower and is slow, the SMART electric is still slow rated for 74 HP and 96 lb-ft. of torque which is a lot for a 2200 lb car. That amount of power is only available when you hit the “go/fun pedal hard” (we are not dealing with a gas pedal here since this car does not take gas. 0-60 MPH times are in the mid 11’s but when you are commuting to work that cares. The cool thing about EVs is you have all the torque available the minute you hit the gas. The smart ev also have its battery pack mounted low in the chassis so the center of gravity is lowered making it more nimble. The range of the smart ev is 122 city and 93 highway MPGe with a combined rating of 107. Total charge time with a totally depleted battery to a full charge is said to be 6 hours on a 240V outlet. But that total is cut in half if you still have some juice left when recharging.You can monitor your charge through a webpage via the smart phone which is neat.

The one maybe misplaced downside about the smart car is that it’s not safe. I mean look at it. I wouldn’t want to get into an accident with a golf cart let alone a big honkey tonk truck. But in reality the smart car is one tough cookie. Mercedes-Benz is responsible for the safety structure and the smart comes with a crash management system and 8 airbags. Now the IIHS gave this car “good” ratings for side, roof, and moderate overlap test results. But then I found something from the IIHS where they crashed a smart fortwo into a Mercedes c-class and yikes. I guess it’s safer than a motorcycle.
