Smart EQ Forfour is no longer produced

The Smart EQ Forfour, a four-door model with a longer wheelbase, ceased production in December. This sister model of the Renault Twingo was produced in a factory in Novo Mesto.

Of course, you can still buy the remaining copies from stock, as well as the Smart EQ ForTwo that remains in production, including the convertible version.

The first generation Smart Forfour was current from 2004 to 2006 and was based on the Mitsubishi Colt. It was the first smart four-door model.

After a long break, in 2014, smart introduced the second generation of the Forfour model, which became a longer derivative of the popular Smart Fortwo.

Fully electric versions followed in 2017, and in 2019 smart became an all-electric brand with the introduction of the redesigned EQ Fortwo and Forfour. SUS engines have been completely discontinued.

The EQ Forfour was one of the most affordable electric models on the European market, but its powertrain was obsolete (compared to the latest electric models), especially the 17.6 kWh lithium-ion battery, which gave it a limited range of 145 to 159 kilometers. .

Just like in the Renault Twingo E-Tech, the rear-mounted electric motor produced 82 hp and 160 Nm of torque, allowing acceleration from 0-100 km / h in 12.7 seconds and top speed limited to 130 km / h (81 mph).

In any case, fans of the Smart brand will not be disappointed with the successor. Of course, it will be a fully electric crossover, developed in collaboration with Geeli. To remind, Daimler retains a 50% stake in Smart in this acquisition, and Geeli took over the other 50% in 2019.
