100% Electric

Smart is one of the few automotive manufacturers currently producing only fully electric vehicles. The new smart #1 model continues the strong legacy of practical and flexible urban motoring.

Compared to other smart models, the new EV eases the stress on range. Built using an advanced Geely’s SEA platform, it provides up to 273 miles with zero emissions driving (WLTP-combined). This range makes it suitable for long-distance travel as well.

The new EV comes with a 22kW on-board charger. The battery can be charged with the DC Charging from 10-80% in a mere 30 minutes, providing enough time for a cup of tea. With smart, you will also get access to one of Europe’s largest charging networks, ensuring you don’t have to worry about the range.

Safety Ensured

The new model has been awarded the highest five-star rating in the Euro NCAP tests. The smart #1 was praised for its good scores in all main safety categories such as Adult Occupant, Child Occupant and Safety Assist.

The model has also been awarded the prestigious What Car? Safety award, marking it as one of the safest cars in the UK.

Steve Huntingford, Editor of What Car?, commented on smart #1:

“The smart #1 demonstrates that it's possible to make an affordable small electric car that is also safer than many larger models. This is a significant achievement; small cars have to work harder than larger ones to get top safety scores because they’re lighter and there’s less metal to absorb an impact.”

“And the #1 also does well in Euro NCAP's Safety Assist tests, with an 88% score, meaning it reduces the chances of you being involved in a collision in the first place.”

The driver assistance features have been a high priority with the latest smart model, demonstrating the manufacturer’s commitment to safety. The numerous systems include front and rear parking sensors, automatic Front Collision Mitigation and Lane Keeping Assist.


Transformative Technology

You can find a range of smart technologies within the latest EV. In addition to the advanced driver assistance systems, you will also get intelligent voice assistance as well as a premium sound system by Beats.

The new model is also designed to create an immersive driving experience through connectivity services. With collaboration with ECARX, an expert in software integration, the smart has created a great human-technology balance. Communication and integration of information has never been easier than with the new smart #1.
