Car2go is a great success here on Calgary! Addition of an electric fleet would be huge! Would be a good idea to partner with the city to help install more L2 charging!

What happens with the old electric Smart? can we buy it?.

ya sure, for twice the price!

In Amsterdam the same happend. Last November and December they swapped the 300 smarts edrive from 2010 for 350 2014 models. No more sweating on the motorway:-) max speed from 60 to 75 mph.

Top speed is 84 in the ED

but that is only in 2014 model, not in 2010 model.

dang they were using the old ones?

The new electric smarts are a hundred times better than the tesla battery pack ones!
