Smart fortwo electric drive: used car test

The idea is older than the brand itself. Smart inventor Nicolas Hayeck thought of electrified mobility right from the start. However, it was to take until 2012 for the first production model to be powered by electricity. How is the two-seater classic, an electrified smart fortwo, doing? Electric Drive, needed after four and a half years? Our test car comes from the 453 model generation presented in 2014 and was first registered in December 2017. It cost a whopping 22,430 euros new. With only 22,020 km on the clock, it would now be available from Nord-Ostsee Automobile in Hamburg for 11,900 euros. Because of his age Smart no longer eligible.

What is the first impression? Visually, the black small car has mastered the first phase of its life properly. Except for a small dent on the roof pillar and minor paintwork defects on the rear bumper, the two-seater cuts a fine figure all round. The new car customer did without numerous extras, but even with steel rims, simple fabric seats and without a navigation system, you can live well and honestly. After a few meters it is clear: electric drive and Smart fit well together when used.

Smart fortwo electric drive: eight years or 100,000 km guarantee on the battery

A three-phase synchronous motor with a peak output of 82 hp sits under the boot floor in the rear of the ultra-short vehicle. This is supplemented by a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 17.6 kilowatt hours installed in the middle under the vehicle. Last but not least, the power is sufficient for brisk progress in the city due to the constantly applied torque. However, at speeds of 100 km/h and more, for example on overland stages, the indication of range in the small combination display melts dramatically quickly.

After all, a crosswind assistant ensures driving stability. More than 130 km radius of action is more like new car brochure theory. Around 100 to 120 kilometers of urban everyday life can be mastered between charging stops, as long as it is not too cold. And if sufficiently long breaks can be scheduled regularly, because with the factory-installed 4.6 kW charger (optional 22 kW), every charging process is an annoying game of patience. On the other hand, the high-voltage battery risk when buying a used battery is still low: after all, Smart offers a guarantee of eight years or 100,000 kilometers on the energy storage device. Nevertheless, it makes sense for prospective buyers to have various battery parameters read out in the workshop in advance.

The right diagnostic software provides precise information about the condition: In addition to the percentage of capacity still available (SoC value), the battery voltage, the voltage level of the individual cells and the voltage difference between the weakest and strongest cell should be measured. If the battery health is good, this is actually half the battle. But a closer look at the vehicle history can also be worthwhile.

Be careful with pool vehicles

Of the Smart was often used by various car sharing providers as an economical pool vehicle. Such specimens often show above-average wear in terms of mileage and should only be considered with significant price reductions, if at all. who could he electric smart so please?

Everyone who is looking for a vehicle that is as compact as possible or a second car for the way to work or short distances in the city. A sensational turning circle of seven meters ensures enormous maneuverability. Parking spaces that are too small for drivers of current four-meter small cars are unexpectedly easy to use. Of the for two fits in with the times as an electric variant – despite its old-fashioned charging technology. And as long as the battery doesn’t weaken, the smart one belongs Electric Drivevariant of the cars that are cheapest to maintain.
