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 reaching an outlet shouldn’t be difficult.
Any commercial 240V charge station (i.e. chargepoint) can be used as the smart has a standard SAE 1772 charge plug connector. There is also a rapid 240-volt charging solution that we will offer through SPX. That information can now be found here: www.pluginnow.com/go/smart
I have to admit, even working for Daimler, I was skeptical about the purpose and promise of an electric drive car of any kind. I am finding this car to be a stellar product and a real blast to drive. This drive-train really seems to be a perfect fit for the smart.
