The new second-gen 2017 Smart Fortwo Cabriolet Electric Drive happens to complete a trio of electric vehicles from Mercedes-Benz’s EV city vehicle sub-brand.
With a range of approximately 96 miles, you certainly can’t count on extended journeys and once-a-week recharging. Fortunately, it’s compensated by its amazing performance and striking maneuverability in dense city streets.
Power is derived from a rear-mounted electric motor manufactured by Mercedes-Benz alliance partner Renault. The given powerplant is also employed in the Zoe.
In the 2017 Smart Fortwo Cabriolet Electric Drive, the three-phase synchronous unit is capable of delivers up to 81bhp and 118lb ft of torque. Compared to the Bosch powerplant employed by the old Fortwo Cabriolet ED this motor offers 22lb ft and 5bhp.
The newly-introduced motor chimes in with an updated version of the lithium ion battery utilized by the first-gen Fortwo Cabriolet ED.
