I have factory trained technicians who work on cars daily for a living, including electrical work. When dealing the smart EV (and any other electric vehicle for that matter), the voltages can get high enough to kill somebody. So please be sure you know what you're doing if tapping into any wiring, and I can say from my own personal training that if there are any wires wrapped in orange --- DEFINITELY leave those alone. Those are high voltage lines.
For certain jobs they let the car sit and place cones around the vehicle as a warning for any curious george's to stay away from the vehicle as the HV battery may be removed, or exposed, or other components.
