Electric Range

Why does smart advertise 160 km (100 miles) of range on electricity, but when I google the range it says 58 miles?

Where does it say 100 miles? Even the window stickers show much less, i.e. around 60 to 70 depending on what model you're looking at. I typically get up to 80 in the summer and 65 or so in the winter.

Your links go to the smart worldwide site (smart.com) The US site, smartusa.com, lists the range as 58 miles or 93.3 Km. Europe and the US use different methods to calculate range, I believe.

And both seem to be somewhat off in opposite directions from the real-world average range.

We really need a sticky forum for range reports...

Living in the Pacific Northwest and driving a 453 ED we are getting 76 mile range
right now where the temperature in the low 30s at night and high in the upper 40s
during the day.
During the summer the range increases into the mid 90 mile range.
In the US the range is determined by the EPA...

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.
