Well, the Smart ForTwo ED is very hard to beat. It is a reference benchmark for all the others to follow.

1-) Perfect size to fit anywhere
2-) FWY driving is very acceptable
3-) Street driving is better than anything that I have driven
4-) 68 miles range it's more than enough for me (Never goes lower than 60% before I recharge it again)
5-) The best thing about all is that this car pays me to drive it.

Very strange how they measure the size of this Motiv-e car on milimeters. Can't they express it on centimeters or just say meter and 1/2 or so?

I guess that if they price it right for the average minimun wage salary Joe they will have lots of sales. Perhaps, $5,000 ~ $7,000 for a street driving only EV car.

funny, they give a top speed in KPH but yet the range is in 'real world miles'

105 kph is like around 65 mph..

A lot of people on blogs are saying that this is better than the smart in terms of looks/ range/speed.

I'd agree looks are subjective.
But for range and speed, there seems to be a consensus that more is better. This thing will have lower range and speed. Speed they admit to in the specs, range follows the tiny battery, unless they forgot to mention the perpetual motion machine...
