Smart Electric Vehicles

Smart Fortwo Electric Drive and Smart Electric Bike, the new electric vehicles that make up the Smart range. All a bet for the environment and sustainable development, ecology and betting on further technological innovations that improve the performance of previous versions, increasing both its speed and autonomy.

The Smart know that all electrically powered and fully sustainable, and without losing the features necessary for the city. Smart improves range of 135 km to the previous generation, a figure which now increases to 145 km with the arrival of the new Smart Fortwo Electric Drive, a power that can be used for both urban and intercity routes.

This new version of the Smart Fortwo Electric Drive is capable of reaching 125 km / h top speed, with acceleration from 0-100 km / h in 11.5 seconds, halving the time it used the previous generation was 26.7 seconds to reach 100 km / h

The bike has a Smart Electric 250 watt electric motor which engages on the rear wheel and fed through a lithium ion battery 400 Wh. The electric motor assists the user while pedaling, ie complements the physical effort of the user who holds the bicycle. It also has 4 different levels of pedal assistance, so that anyone will be able to move in this mode of transport without worrying about their physical condition and will be assisted by the electric motor at all times.

The Ebike has a range of between 30 and 100 miles, something really interesting when move around the city. Another curious fact is that it is not necessary to have a specific permission, because its electric motor switches off automatically when exceeding 25 km / h.
