The Electric Smart convertible of 2013
We would like to present you the brother of the fixed-roof Smart ForTwo the Smart Electric Drive Cabrio, which was launched this year and it is also on market as the common model.
The Smart brand have decided to broaden a range by the electric vehicle to be smooth, quiet and comfortable. Certainly, the Electric convertible model is made just for travelling around the city it is not useful to go long distances but the power of electric motor is the same as in 1gasoline gallon.
The electric motor is located behind a backside of a driver and issues maximum 74 horsepower with the torque of 135.43 Nm.
The Smart Electric Drive Cabrio is not equipped with the steering booster and it “thinks” for a while before acceleration. However, if you just start driving there will not be any lags to accelerate the Smart. Anyway, all owners of Smarts will be agree that this car is better from 0 km/h to 50 km/h than from 50 km/h to 97 km/h. And this “rule” works for both electric and gasoline models. The electric Smart has the “kick-down” system that help a car with additional acceleration, to switch on this system you have to push specially a gas to floor.
In the United States, the hiring price of the Smart electric Coupe is 139 dollars per month and the Cabrio is 199 dollars per month under the stipulation that you pay the deposit of 1,999 dollars and rent the battery separately according to the Battery Assurance program.
