Now that the first dealers are allowing test drives, I would like to gather some of your experiences. I would be interested to know what you liked and what you didn't. And of course how the test drive influenced your decision to buy or not to buy.
I'll start, I was allowed to go to smart in December and drive it:
The smart #1 is already very mature almost 3 months before the delivery of the first vehicles and drives very well. The media system is really fluid and nicely laid out. With a 66 kWh battery, CCS 150 kW and 22 kW via type 2, it is also extremely suitable for long distances. With our combination of overland, highway, standing around a bit on the dirt road to take photos and a lot of driving fun, we had a consumption of 17.5 kWh per 100 km. Which gives it a realistic 370km range. We couldn't test the charging curve, but I've already seen it and it's pretty tight. The smart #1 can easily do 10-80% in under 30 minutes.
Together with the base price of 41,490 € and a great equipment across the board, the smart #1 is well on the way to becoming a bestseller. I'm really looking forward to it a lot.
