So I ordered an electric Smart car yesterday, aka Smart EQ. I’ve gone for all black with the 22kw onboard charger (meaning it will charge at a much faster rate at public charge points if they support that rate).
I got what I considered to be a fairly reasonable deal at a Mercedes ‘VIP’ event.
£3k deposit and then £165 per month over 4 years with the option to purchase for around £5500 at the end. See post 10 for a breakdown.
It’s certainly a lot more expensive than a Twizy, but it basically feels like a more premium and comfortable Twizy. Probably everything a Twizy v2 should be. Its range is quoted as 99 miles and its top speed is 80mph, AND the dealer knew all about it and wanted to sell me one!
It comes with built in TomTom sat nav, radio, air conditioning, heated seats, adjustable seats, glass roof, leather interior, alloy wheels plus a load more stuff.
I only have a month to wait and then I will post some pics!
