Encouraging battery news - 451 ED

2013 Smart ForTwo Electric Battery Health Still Strong At 125,000 Miles

Quote:
I’m Moritz Leicht from Germany and would like to tell you about my smart electric drive from 2013 with the standard 3.7 kW charger (in Europe there is also a 22 kW charger available). At the end of 2018, we passed the 200,000 km-mark and are now happy the battery still has 90% of its original capacity left.

Here are a few facts about the car:
– 3rd generation smart electric drive
– battery (17,6kWh) by the German Accumotive (Joinventure Daimler & Bosch)
– a realistic range of 100km
– charges at maximum with a speed of 20km/h
– the smart electric drive has a fluid based battery heater and cooler
– motor by EM-motive, same as the Fiat 500e, but limited to 55kW due to the small battery
– went to every 20.000km inspection and never had anything wrong
– the smart is a car and we use it as we want. For example, we drove a few laps in racing speed at the Hockenheimring in Germany
– the battery still has 90% left
– this car changed our life, originally leased just for two years my dad bought it after the two years
– this car made my family go full electric (I switched from the old ED to the new EQ, my brother got the old ED, my Mum drives a Renault Zoe, my Dad got a used Model S 100D)
– still has its first brake discs and shoes
– only thing that was replaced where the tires and all the lights
– we are never ever going to give this car away

Awesome to hear! I just purchased a 2015 ED with 13,000 miles. I'm looking to own/drive it until it can no longer go forward...then harvest the battery for a project and sell the rest for parts if able. My wife and I love it so far!
