The ED3 and Me - A/C Pre-charging

“It’s so hot out there.  I wish I could cool-off my car before I get into it.”  If you find yourself saying this a lot then the smart electric drive is for you.  The “Air conditioning before start” feature allows you to cool the interior of the vehicle before driving when it’s connected and charging with  120 or 240-volt connection.  You will also have the ability to set the departure time so your smart knows when to begin cooling-off up to 30-minutes prior to departure and up to 5 minutes…

The ED3 and Me - Regenerative braking/charging

Do you know what regenerative braking is? If so, raise your hand.  My hand is up, but only because I have Engineers I can ask about it.  The simple explanation is that the car uses braking energy to charge the battery. The kinetic energy is transferred into electrical energy and fed back into the high-voltage battery which in turns increases range or the distance you can drive.  

This occurs in three different ways automatically:

1. Releasing your foot from the “gas” pedal…

The ED3 and Me - Sound box

  I think many of us are guilty of thinking only of us and maybe our passengers when talking about the smart or any car for that matter.  How does the car handle? How much stuff can I fit inside? What gas mileage does it get?  But, how often do we think about the pedestrians and the safety aspect around not only keeping the driver and their passengers safe, but those on the outside of the car. This is ESPECIALLY important when talking about an electric car and how insanely quiet they can be…

The ED3 and Me - Charging

  It’s me again!  So, one of the cooler features of the all new smart electric drive is the Plug-in 120-Volt charger that’s stored in the tailgate compartment. This means that most any wall outlet can charge your smart back to full. It’s always with your smart when you need it and as you can see, it’s not bulky or difficult to use. Plug it into the wall. Plug the other end into the smart. Done.  The yellow coil chord does stretch easily and gives you about 15 feet (my estimate) of slack so…

2011 smart

I just stumbled over the smartUSA sight yesterday and I saw the new slightly redesigned 2011 smart. I think the newly redesigned interior keeps its family resemblance but the upgrade looks great and are "smart"ly thought through. They are going to offer a good looking radio with navigation built in ambient lighting. On the outside they have added daytime running lamps (LED) and it has a nice sophisticated look something akin to the Audi. Overall I think the upgrades look great and I look… Continue

There ARE smart video ads out there.

Us poor smarties here in the USA are always griping about the lack of ads on TV in the U.S., and after seeing this I wonder if these ads are playing everywhere in the world but here. At least we can enjoy them on You Tube, but we must seek them out and it won't make a difference to the average American. A old advertising slogan applies here 'A business without a sign, is a sign of no business'.

smart (global) is doing some cool things and is transforming into a… Continue
