Leasing an Smart ForFour Electric Hatchback
With five doors and room for four, the Smart ForFour is the big brother of the Smart car family. Practical enough for families that pack light or solo drivers with lots of luggage, its appeal also lies in its distinctive appearance. Measuring just shy of 3.5 metres, the Smart ForFour is smaller than a Mini but almost a metre longer than the Smart ForTwocabrio and coupe. Originally produced with a choice of petrol or diesel fuel types, new models are completely electric. Plus, if you didn’t already know, Smart is part of the Daimler-Benz group who also manufacture Mercedes-Benz cars.
The Smart ForFour electric hatchback has a 60 kW/82bhp electric motor, along with a 17.6 kWh lithium-ion battery. Range is up to 81 miles based on international WLTP standards, while its maximum speed is 81 mph.This makes the Smart ForFour hatchback best suited to towns and cities. In terms of charging time, you can go from 10% to 80% charge in just under 40 minutes using a commercial grade (22 kW) wall box while a home wall box will give you the same charge in just over three hours. Alternatively, you can simply leave your Smart ForFour charging overnight using a regular three-pin plug socket to recharge in eight and a half hours.
Choose from three trim levels: the entry level Passion Advanced, the Pulse Premium and the top-end Prime Exclusive which comes with leather seats as standard. All models are conveniently five-doors and have enough gadgets and gizmos such as height adjustable steering wheel and front armrests to keep short urban trips comfortable. The Passion Advanced comes with 15-inch alloys but you’ll get larger wheels with the Prime Exclusive. You can also opt for the two-colour paint finish that make Smart cars so distinctive.
Smart ForFour hatchbacks come with front and side airbags as standard in all trim levels. You can also be rest assured that occupant and pedestrian safety is taken care of with Smart’s active brake assist and collision warning system. There’s also an in-built infotainment system which comes with a 7-inch touchscreen, DAB radio, sat nav and charge point locator. You’ll also benefit from the Smart EQ control app which shows your vehicle status on your smartphone.
