First Fully Electric Smart Delivered to Coventry City Council


smart_ed_first_fully_electric The car is the first of 100 cars to be delivered as part of a UK-based market trial for the introduction of a fully electric version of the two-seater (smart ed).

The car will be made available on a lease arrangement to selected UK corporate customers. It has 30kW output and a top speed of 60 mph. It offers nippy in-town performance with 0-30 mph in 6.5 seconds. With a range of up to 70 miles, the smart ed is exempt from vehicle excise duty and congestion charge.

To make its running costs even greener, the electricity used to recharge the car is from renewable resources. The smart ed emits no carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, unburned hydrocarbons, particulate matter or any harmful substance – in fact it emits nothing at all. It retains all the safety equipment you would find on a regular smart, so unlike other electric cars, a smart ed has ESP, ABS brakes two airbags and seatbelt pre-tensioners.

In terms of practicality, the car has its own charger on board, which means it can be plugged directly into any UK mains 3 pin plug socket to recharge. A meter on the dash swivels through 90 degrees so it is possible to see the state of battery charge. The drive train for the smart ed is produced in the UK by technology partner, Zytek Group, who undertake final assembly of the smart ed in Fradley, near Lichfield.
