Nice owner-experience write up on a 2013 electric drive cabriolet:
love the owner’s passion to keep the smart rolling as long as it is willing and able.
Noticed recently on my 2014 smart ED that my battery coolant level is just above the min. line on the tank and I was wondering what type of coolant I should be using to top it off. Anyone had experience with that?
Smart For Two Electric Drive 120V Charger
Fits in the trunk storage area, however, I always kept mine in my garage.
It is a level 1 portable charger with a standard J1772 vehicle plug
This will charge any EV sold in the USA (Tesla's would require the J1772 adapter that came with your car)...
Hey there fellow smarty-pantses! I recently undertook the installation of a pair of Hella Sharptones into my 2017 ED and thought I'd share a couple of things that might be helpful if anyone else wants to do it. I didn't really take pics as I went but I'll try to illustrate.

Just started driving a new 2015 SMART ED this week. It has been great so far and enjoy playing with the regeneration paddle on this car.
by the way, any SMART ED drivers out there thinking of using a Nissan Leaf level 1 OEM charger instead of the SMART OEM level 1 charger?
Hello Everyone, I love my new smart Electric Drive! Three questions for anyone who might know OR who might know where I might find out the answers:
1) Twice during medium to moderate acceleration I have heard a brief "thud" and the car stopped gliding forward for a fraction of a second, then...
Started in anticipation of May 1st (or 3rd) deliveries. :)
