Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Smart #1 Brabus. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 32h45m 6 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 20h30m 10 mph
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x32A 7.4 kW 10h15m 20 mph
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 400V / 3x16A 11 kW 7 hours 30 mph
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 400V / 3x32A 22 kW † 3h30m 60 mph

† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.

Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)

Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the Smart #1 Brabus.

  • Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
  • Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2)
Charging Point Max. Power Avg. Power Time Rate
CCS (50 kW DC) 50 kW 45 kW † 63 min 140 mph
CCS (100 kW DC) 100 kW 80 kW † 35 min 250 mph
CCS (150 kW DC) 150 kW 100 kW † 28 min 310 mph

† = Limited by charging capabilities of vehicle

Actual charging rates may differ from data shown due to factors like outside temperature, state of the battery and driving style.

All about the Smart #1 Brabus

Pricing

The Smart #1 Brabus has an estimated On The Road Price (OTR) of £42,000. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery.

Drivetrain and Performance

The Smart #1 Brabus is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Smart #1 Brabus is 315 kW (422 hp). The maximum torque is 401 lb-ft. The Smart #1 Brabus is all wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 3.9 seconds. The top speed is 112 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the Smart #1 Brabus has a total capacity of 66 kWh. The usable capacity is 64 kWh (estimate). An estimated range of about 210 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 145 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 310 mi.

Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 22 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 3 hours 30 minutes. However, a 3-phase grid connection is needed to achieve this. The majority of homes and charge points currently do not have this connection. In most cases the maximum charging power will be 7.4 kW, allowing for a charge time of 10 hours 15 minutes and a charge rate of 21 mph. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 32 hours 45 minutes.

Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection. The maximum rapid charge power is 150 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 100 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 30 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 145 miles of range.

Energy Consumption

The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Smart #1 Brabus is about 305 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 441 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 206 Wh per mile.

CO2 Emission

The Smart #1 Brabus 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.
