Fortwo Electric Drive
An electric version of the face-lifted 2013 Smart Fortwo will be made available in late 2012/early 2013. Using a 17.6-kWh lithium-ion battery sourced in-house, the Fortwo electric drive is said to have a range of 100 miles. When the car is plugged into a 240-volt outlet, an 80-per- cent charge is attainable in 3.5 hours; 100 percent in seven hours. The electric motor is rated at 96 lb.-ft. of torque.
An all-new, next-generation Fortwo should arrive sometime in 2014.
