Video: Smart For Two Electric Drive Takes On Olympic Sprinter and Sports Car
Smart Canada decided to rent out a scenic downtown Toronto rooftop parking structure to demonstrate something most electric vehicle owners already know.
Thanks to instant torque, electric cars have a lot of quickness of the line and can surprise aggressive traffic light competition – no racing prowess needed.
In the above video the smart ForTwo Electric Drive takes on a “Olympic sprinter and a sports car” over what seems to be about about 150 feet of pavement.
Surprisingly (or not), the 63 mile, 2 seat plug-in from smart-Daimler, with 96 lb-ft of torque finishes
dead last just ahead of both the runner and the Porsche Boxster.
