Smart # 1 – 272HP electric crossover


Smart started the electrification of its offer with the premiere of the compact electric crossover Smart # 1, which represents a great deviation of this company from previous products. The model is designed to attract a wide customer base with a soft look, modern technology and fully electric drive.

The car is 4.27 m long, 1.82 m wide and 1.64 m high, and the distance between the axles is 2.75 m. The weight of the car is not small, as is usual for electric models, and it is 1820 kg.

Smart # 1 is equipped with an electric generator of 272 hp (200kW) with a maximum torque of 343Nm, and power is transmitted to the rear wheels. Nickel-cobalt-magnesium battery has a capacity of 66kWh, and the maximum speed is 180km / h.

Charging a battery from 10% to 80% capacity takes about three and a half hours if a 22kW charger is used, and drops to 30 minutes with a 150kW charger. Smart published data that the autonomy is from 420km to 440km according to the WLTP cycle. The built-in technology enables software improvements via the Internet for 75% of the system for regulating engine operation and battery parameters, so the autonomy is expected to increase in the future.

The cabin is technologically very advanced, and the emphasis is on the 3D user interface that can be used with voice commands. Passengers have at their disposal a central screen with a diagonal of 12.8 inches, and in front of the driver is a 9.2-inch digital dashboard.

For now, Smart has not announced the start date of the sale or the starting price, but the crossover is expected to arrive first on the Chinese market, and then in Europe. Smart became a joint German-Chinese company when Mercedes partnered with Geely.
