About smart fortwo electric drive

The all-new 2016 Smart Fortwo has matured into the car it always should have been. Always fascinating because of its size and proportions, only now does it feel like it's making good on its promise. With a new automatic transmission, an additional 3.8 inches of width, and a slew of new standard features like Bluetooth and automatic climate control, the new Smart Fortwo feels more like a modern car. Of course, it's still very much a niche vehicle. If you need a rear seat, take longer road trips, want 40-plus mpg, or just don't want to burn premium fuel, then the Smart Fortwo isn't for you. With an electric version coming sometime in 2017, the 2016 Smart Fortwo remains singularly purposed urban transportation.

Everything is new about the 2016 Smart Fortwo. It's wider, has a much better automatic transmission, offers better sound-deadening on the highway, has a new 3-cylinder engine, lots of new standard equipment, and it's all wrapped in new styling as well. Virtually nothing carries over but the name.

Pros: "great price, fun to drive"

Cons: "short range only, hours to recharge"

"I leased this car 2 years ago in Boston. I have only about 9000 miles total so far, but I love the car. The range is too short, but only for long trips. This car is great for everything shorter than 70 miles round-trip. No back seat so you can't take small kids, but for one or two adults, and a bunch of groceries or whatever in the back it is perfect. Range drops off at highway speeds, and in very cold weather. The car has lots of pep, low center of gravity takes corners very well, is fun to drive, and you can park on a postage stamp."

Pros: "Fun to drive- great acceleration. Park anywhere!"

Cons: "220V dedicated charger to fully charge overnight"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I have a daily commute of about 52 miles, round trip. At first, I was very nervous about the range, because the "Wall Wart" that charges it from a 110 outlet only passes about 1kW (to a 17 kW-hr battery). Got the 220V dedicated charger, and now range is not an issue. Typically 7 miles every 10%. Acceleration is amazing- the Conventional Smart totally pales in comparison (as do a number of conventionally powered cars). It is very comfortable, VERY quiet, and confident driving down the DC beltway at 70 MPH. Highly recommended for Commuters! Park Anywhere!"
