The new Smart is an electric SUV that is truly beautiful


It is true that Smart describes its new car as an SUV, but closer to a crossover. But let’s leave this topic for another discussion, because Smart # 1 is very good.

Fashion for the modern

What should a car look like to keep up with current trends? First of all, it must be a hybrid plug, and preferably an electrician – after all, we feel more eco when we do not emit exhaust fumes into the country. Secondly, it should be an SUV or a crossover – it seems that most people prefer to sit on top. It meets both of these characteristics Smart #1The brand’s first electric SUV.

As I mentioned at the beginning, we are dealing with a very interesting car. He’s certainly not the best looking electrician, but there’s no denying his charm. I especially like the interior, which is minimalist, elegant and also modern. I wouldn’t mind walking the next few kilometers in such interior.

It is worth noting that Smart # 1 feels larger than previous models from this manufacturer. However, this should not be a big surprise – cars in all areas are only growing. The length of the new model is 4,270 mm and the wheelbase is 2,750 mm – very good. Added to this are optional, very large, 19-inch rims.

The driver has a 9.2-inch digital instrument cluster, along with a 12.8-inch main screen for the infotainment system, as well as a 10-inch Head-Up display. Most of the tasks are run from the central screen, which is due to the limited number of buttons. In addition, among the most interesting functions is the OTA update system, so we will download and install the latest software without visiting the website.

Smart #1 is also a good performance

Smart Smart should turn into a real city rocket. This is due to the high power of the electric motor, which provides maximum torque almost immediately.

The manufacturer relied on the electric motor at the back, which produces 272 hp and a torque of 343 Nm, and the maximum speed is 180 km / h. It is worth adding that all power is transferred to the rear wheels.

There is still a not too small battery on board. It has a capacity of 66 kWh, which, according to the WLTP, should translate to 420-440 kilometers. So there will be no problem in long trips outside the city. In the case of a fast charger with a power of 150 kW, we will charge the battery from 10 to 80% in a good 30 minutes.

There were many safety and driver assistance systems. It was not confirmed in the press release, but the service Android Auto and Apple CarPlay he is almost certain. Unfortunately, the release date in Europe as well as the price have not been revealed.
