01-ED4 General

  • The ED4 has now become a real car. The fortwo and the forfour differ technically only in length. Battery, motor and everything else are the same, only the range of the forfour minimally smaller. How it held up the frist 100.000 km can be read in my blog post about it.

    ED or EQ?

    The so-called smart ED4 is based on the smart of the series 453 and was marketed from 2017 until mid-2018 as ED. Since mid-2018 it joined the Daimler's EQ family and is now referred to as smartEQfortwo, or forfour as smartEQforfour. Technically, nothing changed with the name change. So the smart EQ is also an ED4.

    Facelift or no facelift?

    With the facelift, the smartEQfortwo and the smartEQforfour got a new look in early 2020. Particularly striking is the now (visually) larger radiator as well as the new air intakes at the height of the cornering light. Technically, not much has changed, range remains the same. But there are now LED headlights, new designed taillights and an Apple CarPlay radio.

    From experience, I would give the smart ED4 as fortwo a realistic range of about 125 km (77 miles) and as forfour about 110 km (68 miles).
