Every Model Smart Car Will Offer An Electric Drive Option In 2017 - Gas 2.0

The electric cars will be outfitted with an all new Smart Electric Drive system, built by Mercedes-Benz in partnership with Renault-Nissan. Its specifications make it seem like an ideal choice for most urban commuters. It has a Euro-cycle range of 99 miles (more like 75 miles in EPA testing). It uses a 17.6 kWH battery that can be recharged in just 2.5 hours using standard household current. (Note: household current in Europe is 220 volts. Figure 5 hours for charging in the US on 110 volts.) Best of all, the battery is large enough to qualify for the full federal electric car tax credit of $7,500. A smartphone app allows owners to adjust charging and climate control settings remotely.
