The new generation smart is one thing above all: authentically electric.
The brand returns to its origins with the systematic switch to emission-free, battery-electric powertrains.
In combination with progressive design and intelligent connectivity, smart already offers a sustainable and comprehensive concept for urban mobility today.
Since then, Mercedes-Benz has worked on a concept of a purely urban vehicle whose powertrain needs to be not only electric, but also a solution for future urban mobility challenges.
The smart with environment-friendly electric powertrain finally became a reality in 2007 with the concept of visionary Nicolas Hayek.
Since then, smart has offered an all-electric option in every generation.
With the new fortwo and forfour models, the time has finally come: smart is switching to emission-free, battery-electric powertrain technology across the board.
A smart makes life in the city easier.
With its radical concept and new ideas, smart has always offered the right solutions for urban daily life.
At the same time, it is always easy to use and intuitive to understand.
Trimmed down to the essentials, a smart gives you more time, more energy and, above all, more freedom.
With the systematic switch to battery-electric powertrain technology, smart is now driving back to the future.
The brand does not need to reinvent itself at all to do so, it merely has to rediscover itself.
Because electric power was always meant to be at the heart of the smart.
To express this, the designers drew inspiration from the iconic details of the first generations and interpreted them for the new era of electric mobility.
As a result, an original becomes what it has always been: an electric original.
