Battery and Charging

The battery of the Smart EQ fortwo cabrio has a total capacity of 17.6 kWh. The usable capacity is 16.7 kWh (estimate). A range of about 55 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.

For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 40 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 90 mi.

Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 7 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 3 hours. An optional on-board charger with a maximum power of 22.0 kW is available. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 55 minutes.

The combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Smart EQ fortwo cabrio is about 300 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 133 mpg in a traditional petrol car.

The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 415 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 185 Wh per mile.

CO2 Emission

The Smart EQ fortwo cabrio emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
