We all know that it’s smart to switch to electric drive, but how smart are smart customers in the US?
According to data gathered by InsideEVs, it seems that about 20-25% of all smart fortwos sold in the past 27 months were smart fortwo electric drive.
In 2013, it was 10% (923 units), but in 2014 that figure rose to nearly 25% (2,594 units). This year begins from 21.3% (326 units in three months).
The record stands at 41.3% in June 2014.
