smart electric drive cabrio, fortwo and forfour
Smart recently introduced the new generation of its electric cars.
As part of the process, the Daimler brand became the first and only carmaker who electrified whole lineup (of two) making cars available in both gasoline and all-electric versions.
In some markets - specifically North America (this Fall) and EV-hungry Norway - Smart goes even further by not selling the gasoline versions at all.
Globally, the Smart lineup consist of the Fortwo (in two versions) and the Forfour:
- smart fortwo electric drive
- smart fortwo cabrio electric drive
- smart forfour electric drive

Dr. Annette Winkler, Head of smart said:
"The smart is the perfect city car, and with electric drive it becomes a little bit more perfect. This is why we will soon be offering our entire range – smart fortwo, forfour and even our smart cabrio – as all-electric versions. Together with lots of smart fans and enthusiastic drivers of the three predecessor generations, we are looking forward to the unique driving fun offered by the new smart electric drive. And at very attractive prices, especially in countries where there is a buyer's premium".
