>> my 2nd smart arriving.

Well the fun and the passion mixed with high enthusiasm has started again

I currently own a 08 smart Fortwo Cabrio with 93K. I love it still rate it a 9 out of 10. (Once Boosted with Turbo 10/10)

I am now already seeking to pick up the 13 smart Fortwo Coupe ELECTRIC DRIVE once release in spring.

I then will have 2 smarts. Best of both worlds gas fun with turbo fun potential and gas saving electric smart.

Im so excited its like im getting a new addition to the family.

electric drive coupe cant wait but its going to be cool having a cabrio for the beach days and and panoramic view of the coupe for inner city driving. .....fun fun fun.....my prius is up for sell to make way for the new little guy...smart ED :-D

You can go to Macy's, Walgreens, Kohl's, Best Buy, Target. While you shop, you can get your car charged. One stop. Tesla is add more charging stations too. Walgreens is adding over 300 of them across the country.

I hope you will report on it, the actual range versus nominal, the good, the bad. This will be really helpful to the members here!

Yes u will report actual mileage for all the members. No problem. I can't find anyone with a waiting list. The dealer here just took my name and number but would not let me give a deposit.
Ohhhh I can't wait either....what color u guys think I should get?

white with green tridion of course


I've felt there needs to be a way to hook the gas smart and the EV smart together. Like a short train. Once hooked up, there should be software that runs the two like a hybrid, determining how much electric power and how much gas power to run moment by moment. Then you'd have a four seat hybrid that breaks down into components. You can leave home the gas part or the EV part. Drive pure or drive hybrid.

The smart have always seemed like the perfect non-hybrid. Just the simplest gas car without the extra weight and drawback of a hybrid, and the same for the EV. But for situations where the hybrid is an advantage, how cool to connect them.

Of course, once you've hooked a couple smarts together why stop at two. Imagine a smart train.

I'd love to also have the electric smart but unfortunately my 2nd car has to be a gear and people hauler. I bought my gas smart even though I really wanted to wait for the electric smart. I will be very tempted to trade in my 2011 Pure but financially it will make no sense as I got my car super cheap.
