Charge time for 120 V is 12.5 hours? I hope that is a mistake and thought it would be less than before. Using 240 and getting it charged in 2.5 hours is great although it hints that it might be different system that what we have now?

Now that heated steering wheel is something to look forward to for us in the Great White and often frozen North.

And Motor Trend sez . . .

The new model features a 17.6-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery and an improved on-board charger that results in faster charging times. When using a Level 2 charger, Smart says the 2017 Fortwo ED should reach full charge in about 2.5 hours, which is a 3-hour improvement over the previous model.

Charge time jumps to an estimated 22 hours when using a 110-volt power source.

Dunno how that could be with the on-board charger rate being doubled?
