US EPA range is officially 58 miles per one charge but the EPA got a maximum distance of 104.x miles in their lab tests under ideal conditions with ECO mode OFF, so they could have done more with ECO on. (My personal best was about 112-114 in summer with city driving, no A/C, lots of regen braking. Day to day range is ~80 in summer, ~55 in winter for me in Boston)
NEDC (new European Driving Cycle) lists it as 160km/100 mi but that test is known for being very optimistic.
I'm very curious what a smart EQ Fortwo would do for range in a place like Chicago today with in -30F weather. I messaged the smart brand manager in Chicago to see if they're willing to test it out. no reply yet.
