I hope to be in your shoes in a year or two.LOL
Meanwhile my Smart usually shows 78-80 miles but I only use it for short around town trips. I love the fast acceleration and the short turning radius which gives me the ability to park in the smallest places. It is the only car my wife will take to the health club since she can always find a place to park in the very crowded parking structure.

66 miles on the morning after my first all night charge (the next day after picking up the car and charging it all night on 110 house power.) Dealer only charged car to 50% (I waited hours for them to get it to that) AND had to stop and blink charge for an hour on the way home.


66mph as my max range after all night charge? Does that seem low to you guys?

Try resetting the RESET trip odometer, that will clear out the history of the dealer driving the car from the estimate.

My experience is the same. My 2013 will only get about 55 miles of range if the temp outside is below 40..above that the mileage goes up considerably to as much as 75. Also, my battery tops off the same whether ding Level 1 or Level 2, it just takes a lot longer on Level 1. I leave it connected over night.

in warm weather I see 90 miles range after full charge and reset of counters.
In cold weather ( 14 def F) I saw 27 miles range, made it home, could not drive co worker home without serious range anxiety.

LOL, A Tesla will go farther than a Smart???

The estimator range shown (Guess ta mator) is heavily influenced by the way you drove prior to recharging.
I have seen the highest of 83 miles, lowest of 60 miles.

I do believe the Smart was an early rush to get it done and not as efficient as my Chevy Volt.

Smart, 2,000 lbs. 17.6Kwh, range 60+ miles and I drive it like I stole it.

Volt, 4,300 lbs. 18.6Kwh, range 68+ miles on battery alone and I drive it like I stole it on EV only.

Currently 167 MPG on this tank of gas.
I love my Volt, pretty quick too.
Lifetime MPG for the car is currently is 100mpg.
I love the option of being able to carry four people, put the back seats down a carry larger items, travel anywhere, anytime without having to worry OR plan where a recharge station is at. Best of both worlds.

90 miles is the maximum that my 2014 convertible will ever show regardless of how far I have gone on a single charge (which is over 120). I assume it is hard coded in the software that way for some reason.

I wondered what the upper limit number was for the expected range on the cluster. Mine got to 90 once after my previous charge would have ended up being about 90 miles. Never, ever came close to 100 miles let alone 120+.

Okay, tell me how you got over 120 miles on a single charge. You had to have driven that whole charge at 30 mph or from the top of Pike's Peak down.
