Electric cars often lack colour. Not with smart; there are just so many possibilities - which is why one smart EQ fortwo coupé rarely looks quite like another.
Recurrent features such as the dynamic sweep or the honeycomb pattern are typical of smart. Extensive, fabric-upholstered surfaces create an atmosphere in which you can immediately feel at home – and that offers something a bit different to the staid monotony of many other cars.
Shows you the battery charge status at a glance – and whether the vehicle is consuming or recuperating energy.
Provides information about available range and the car's eco score: this is a display that helps you to maintain a consistent and efficient driving style. The instrument cluster takes the form of a 3.5-inch TFT colour display offering a wealth of additional information.
The kinetic energy of the vehicle is used to charge the high-voltage battery via recuperation as soon as you take your foot off the accelerator pedal. The radar-based recuperation goes one step further: a radar sensor monitors the traffic in front of the vehicle and automatically selects the optimum recuperation level. This ensures more ride comfort and optimised use of the kinetic energy.
This enables you to raise or lower the temperature of your smart to a pleasant level before you set off, via smartphone or tablet. This saves energy: as long as your smart is still connected to the mains for charging, climate control takes place without depleting the battery charge – and you benefit from added range.
With enhanced insulation, heated multifunction steering wheel and heated seats for driver and front passenger, this package provides for a pleasant interior climate. In this way you can reduce the heating output for the benefit of added range – without getting cold.
With the 22kW on-board charger you don't have to worry about long charging times.
Keep your eye on important information at all times – wherever your smart happens to be. Charge level, current range or the end of your parking time, for example. smart control also provides a convenient means of controlling vehicle functions such as pre-entry climate control.
You can use smart control on your smartphone or tablet. For this purpose you need to carry out a one-off registration of your vehicle online. Following activation, you have access to a broad range of vehicle functions and information from anywhere, at any time.
With 7-inch multi-touch display, intuitive to operate and offering a wide spectrum of features. Important functions such as navigation or telephony can be operated via voice control, while USB, AUX and SD card sockets allow you to play music, pictures and films. You can use Bluetooth® to make telephone calls without taking your hands away from the wheel, or to stream music.
The optional smart Media-System offers you information on your smart EQ's energy flow, indicating whether your vehicle is consuming or recuperating energy, for example.
The positioning of the high-voltage battery in a robust frame set into the vehicle underbody offers the best possible protection from deformation in the event of a collision. To ensure that occupants never come into contact with high voltage, all connectors are shock-proof. All the battery's safety functions are additionally subject to ongoing monitoring. And should it ever actually come to a crash, the high-voltage elements switch themselves off.
Much in the same way as a nut is protected by its hard shell, the tridion safety cell made of 75 percent high-strength steel keeps its contents safe from harm. In conjunction with further components such as crash boxes and deformation elements, the tridion safety cell ensures maximum safety in a minimum of space.
As well as airbags for the driver and front passenger, the smart EQ fortwo and forfour models come with a kneebag for the driver, two pelvis/thorax bags in the backrests of the driver's and front passenger seats and windowbags, which deploy over the windows on the side of the vehicle affected by the impact.
Electric driving is surprisingly quiet. To avoid you surprising other road users, the optional acoustic presence indicator takes effect at speeds below 17 mph. A discreet sound appropriate to the given driving situation ensures a better awareness of your vehicle's presence and improves safety for all road users.
This system scans the traffic in front of you and alerts you to an impending risk of collision with visual and audible warnings. It will actively intervene to brake the vehicle at speeds over 30 km/h in emergencies.
