Smart Fortwo Electric Drive - Drive Cult


At a manufacturer test event, we got to have a go in the Smart fourtwo electric drive EV!

Warning, this video may contain traces of Radio 2...

This video is their our impressions. We only had one camera running, and this is what we got.

This was filmed at a closed, private test track. On the road, please drive carefully.

too bad they didnt know how to use the paddles...

My wife and I have had 2 Smart Cars for five years, but have just traded both of them in for ED, Electric Drives. Great fun (even if the range is short). Is there anyone else out there with EDs? We are about to install a Type 2 EVSE (charger) on our driveway (we have no garage) and would love some advice: How do we protect it from the elements? has anyone mounted their EVSE in a box or bollard? How much did you spend to install it?
I am looking forward to joining the conversation...

Most of them are weather-proof and can be mounted outdoors without concern. I know the Clipper Creek one I got is.

Enough with the ignorance...

"Don't need central locking" because it automatically locks and it went right over their heads...

"Not sure what the paddles actually do" because you engaged them while you were stopped. Yes, they handle regen and the passenger mentioned it as a possibility but again it went over their heads...

Never seen a car with more ignorant opinions!
