      You should really drive a 2014+ Smart 451 (gas) for comparison's sake. I'm a long time Smart owner and huge fan. They are quirky in every way and absolutely the most fun I have had in a "commuter car". My gas burner achieved 41mpg highway and 45-52mpg city. Never had a single problem with it. Regret selling it every day. Do a side-by-side of the two and you'll get a real appreciation for each model.

      I bought a used 2015 Smart Fortwo ED recently. It’s so fun and it puts a fun/healthy smile on my face every day!

      How much ? Monthly or cash all at once?

      80 h.p. But your not sure? Why wouldn’t you know this when doing a road test? So we get to watch you get giddy over doing donuts in a car.😳🙄. Tell us about charge rate, price, amenities, ride . Not much of a road test to me.
