How far can it go on single charge? What is the real-world range?

Real-world range of the Smart EQ fortwo cabrio is 64–78 miles (ranked №636 out of 647 electric vehicles) — depending on several factors, including:

  • Speed: Higher speeds deplete the battery faster.
  • Temperature: Extreme cold and hot weather impacts range.
  • Terrain: Hilly or mountainous terrain reduces range.
  • Driving style: Aggressive driving with frequent acceleration and braking consumes more energy.
  • Use of features: Features like climate control and media system also affect range.

It's important to remember that these are just estimates, and your actual range may vary. It's always best to factor in these various factors when planning your trip and be prepared for potential charging stops.

What charging options are available? How long does it take to charge it?

The Smart EQ fortwo cabrio in the USA comes with a Type 1 (J1772) charging port. It can be charged at home using a standard domestic socket or at any public AC charging station with the compatible cable. It's important to note that the car's on-board charger (inverter) limits the maximum AC charging rate to 4.6 kW, resulting in approximately 18 miles of range added per hour of charging.

For significantly faster charging, public DC fast-charging stations are available. Although the car can achieve a maximum DC charging rate of 22 kW, factors such as battery temperature and charge level may affect the actual charging speed.
