Smart puts electric mobility in the spotlight in Geneva



Battery-electric models from Smart are the first series-produced
vehicles of the Mercedes-Benz Cars EQ family. And Smart is simplifying
access to electric mobility: the new Smart EQ control app is the digital
extension of the Smart EQ fortwo, smart EQ fortwo cabrio and smart EQ

This app combines numerous items of car-related information, such as the current charge level, the control of vehicle functions such as pre-entry climate control and charge management, and displays the corresponding information in personalised form. Another new feature is the 22 kW on"‘board charger with fast charging function.

"Smart is electric, innovative, intelligent and totally unique, or in three words each: "˜Smart EQ fortwo' and "˜Smart EQ forfour'," says CEO of Smart Dr. Annette Winkler. "With the Smart EQ fortwo/forfour, we are putting the first products from the Mercedes-Benz Cars EQ family on urban roads and showing how much fun electric mobility can be."

The beginning of the Smart EQ era will be celebrated with the special models Smart EQ fortwo nightsky edition, Smart EQ fortwo cabrio nightsky edition and Smart EQ forfour nightsky edition. Defining features of the vehicles in black paintwork are accent trim parts in the signature blue colour of the EQ technology and product brand.

Smart EQ control app: The perfect digital companion

The new Smart EQ control app, which will probably be available from mid-2018, is simple, straightforward and entertaining in typical Smart style. With the personalised app, customers can always keep their eye on the current status of their vehicle and control the pre-entry climate control from their smartphone. In addition, intelligent push notifications inform the driver about important events around their electric Smart. The built-in charging service now also makes it even easier to find the nearest charging station and to make the payment.

New 22 kW on-board charger with fast charging function

Zero-emissions driving is also made easier by the new 22 kW fast charger. This on-board charger permits three-phase charging at public charging stations or at a wallbox; the high-voltage battery is charged from 10 to 80 percent in under 40 minutes. It will be available from May and will cost 840 euros as an option[1].

Official launch of Smart "ready to share"

Following successful beta testing in Stuttgart, Hamburg, Berlin, Cologne/Bonn, Munich and Frankfurt, Smart is now officially launching private car sharing by app. The "ready to" package, which is required as hardware for the service, is now optionally available for the Smart fortwo and Smart forfour in combination with combustion engine and electric drive in Germany, Italy and France. The first Smart vehicles to be fitted with this equipment will reach the showrooms in June. Smart has drawn on the feedback from the community in its further development of Smart "ready to" and will continue to do so for future updates.
