2016 smart fortwo electric drive Buyer's Guide
The first of the contemporary mainstream micro cars to find widespread acceptance, the 2016 Smart Fortwo Electric Drive is also the only offering of its type in the teeny car space. It’s also all new for the 2016 model year (save the powertrain, which carries over from the 2015 model). Designed specifically for urban environments, the Smart Fortwo is quite possibly the finest city car ever offered. Of course, this does mean the diminutive two-seater is rather narrowly focused. It also means some wonderful developments to make it great at its mission—including a smartphone application designed to guide you to Smart car parking spaces in several major cities.

As we mentioned previously, the 2016 Smart Fortwo Electric Drive's propulsion system is carried over from the 2015 model. Thus, it uses a 55kw electric motor, fed by a 17.6kWh lithium-ion battery pack. The motor delivers up to 74 horsepower in short bursts, but produces 47 horsepower in steady state operation. Range is rated at 68 miles, and a full recharge takes six hours from a 240v source.
