01-ED3 General

  • The third generation smart electric drive is a very robust car. As you can read here, smart did not pay attention to the cost of the electric drive version. So good that the high-voltage components will outlast the mechanics and have been driving our ED3 for over 200,000km without any problems. They only used the best parts by Bosch, EM-motive and Accumotive. The smart ED3 is the only car from the 2010s, which has got battery cells made in Germany.

    From experience, I would give the smart ED3 a realistic range of about 110km (68 Miles).

    In depth details:

    The 2nd and 3rd generation are often confused, so here is a direct comparison. The most obvious is that the 3rd generation has the facelift front end from the 451 series, while the 2nd generation is still based on the pre-facelift. In addition, the 3rd generation has the upgraded on-board computer as standard, while the 2nd generation always had the small on-board computer from the pre-facelift. Also, the green tridion cell, if the vehicle has it, is a bit lighter and metallic on the 3rd generation, while it was a bit darker and matte on the 2nd generation.
