Leasing a Smart ForTwo Electric Coupe
There have been six generations of the Smart ForTwo which launched in 1998 - well before electric cars were considered a practical reality. Fast-forward a couple of decades and the ForTwo Coupe is just one bodystyle model in the all-electric Smart car family, including the Fortwo Electric Cabrio. Owned by the Daimler-Benz Group, who manufacture Mercedes-Benz, Smart cars have a great pedigree. The Smart ForTwo Electric Coupe might be one of the smallest cars on the market, but there’s still around 260-litres of boot space which is enough for your weekly shop or a night or two away. You could also consider the Coupe’s sibling for Cabrio lease deals.
All Smart cars, including the ForTwo Electric Coupe, come with a 60kW, 82bhp electric motor which is more than quick enough for urban driving. You’ll get up to 82 miles on a full charge and go from 0-62mph in 11.6 seconds with a top speed of 81mph. You can recharge the battery to 80% capacity in less than 40 minutes if you’re using a commercial 22kW wallbox. The same charge from a home-based wallbox will take a little over three hours, or you can use a regular three-pin plug and charge your ForTwo Electric Coupe overnight. As a fully electric vehicle, there are no CO2 emissions.
Choose from four trim levels: Passion Advanced, the Pulse Premium, the Prime Exclusive, and the Edition One. The Edition One is only available in the coupe and ForTwo Cabrio styling. Although the Passion Advanced is the entry-level spec, there’s enough inside to keep the driver and passenger happy with a height-adjustable steering wheel, armrest and no-fuss upholstery. If you prefer a sportier edge, the Prime Exclusive and the Edition One trim levels provide more intricately designed alloy wheels, ambient lighting and an automatic interior dimming mirror. Only the Edition One comes with leather seats as standard. Special editions include the Prime Premium and Nightsky.
For a small car, there are lots of clever safety features including Smart’s Crosswind Assist technology which provides stability even on blustery days. There’s also active brake assist and front, side and knee airbags. A deactivation system means occupants won’t come into contact with the high-voltage battery either. A high-res 8-inch touchscreen will give you access to the Smart Connect Media System with Bluetooth, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
All Smart cars come with a 36-month warranty and no mileage restrictions. Your Smart car’s lithium-ion battery is also under warranty for eight years or 62,000 miles - whichever comes first. For more information and advice on service options, head to the Smart website.
If you’re after a like-for-like comparison, there isn’t a huge choice of alternatives, which reinforces the Smart ForTwo Coupe’s image as a unique and distinctive vehicle. However, close alternatives worth considering include these Seat MII electric and Renault ZOE Electric. Other options include these Hyundai Ioniq, and Mini electric.
