smartnoob posted a topic in Electric DriveHello community... I hope this community is as awesome as the car is :)... We are about to buy a Smart 2015 ED with 30k km on it, but here is the trick, we are from Costa Rica, and, as a any new buyer of an electric car, I'm afraid that the battery can be dead after a couple of years... (yes, I've read that it support up to 4000 cycles of charge, 8 years warranty (it doesnt apply to me), up to 100k km / 400k in the theory)... Murphy can be around the corner as usual. How easy is buy a replacement battery in a retailer? How much does it cost? Does Mercedez sells it on the site if you have the vehicle registered?. We have Mercedez dealers in CR but they dont sell these cars over here. All info to the newbie electric driver is more than welcome (and comments for the sake of my peace of mind :)) Thanks in advance, Adrian B. -noobsmart
Despite being early in the new year, there are already plans for a number of different smart events in 2015. While many of these events are based in the US, Canadians are more than welcome to attend those as well. There are also a few Canadian events in the planning phases as well, so have a look at those too! Probably the first large event of the year is the Ohio April Fools rally, taking place April 10th-12th, 2015. The rally will be held somewhere around Central Ohio (Location not yet determined), and is being organized by jwight. Last years rally ended with the group touring the Ohio State Reformatory, the filming location of The Shawshank Redemption. For further details on this years event, click through to the SCoA thread HERE The next major event of the year is the Midwest Smart Rallye, "Meet me in St. Louie". This event is taking place in St. Louis, Missouri from June 5th to 7th. This one is shaping up to be a big event, with 20 cars signed up already. For more details on the midwest rally, click HERE Proposed for the same time frame is the Summer Blat, starting in Red Deer, Alberta, and ending in Lake Louise, Alberta. The schedule outlined puts the event as running from June 5th until June 8th. If you are interested in this event, post over in the thread HERE Following up after that is the ever popular "OutSMARTing the Dragon" event. Running from August 20th to August 23rd, this event pits drivers against the twisty-turny Tail of the Dragon, also known as US 129. The Tail of the Dragon is an 11 mile stretch of road through the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, with 318 curves. The event will be based out of the Fontana Village Resort in Fontana Dam, North Carolina. For the full details, follow THIS link. Finally, one event which is still in the "gathering interest" phase, is a 2015 Summer Driver's Training event that Mike T is looking to put together. The event would be at a track (potentially Pitt Meadows or the Mission Raceway) in BC. This event also holds the potential of being another 10th Anniversary of Smart in Canada event. Because this event is just gathering interest, there is no set date. If you are interested in participating in this, or would like to provide some input, look HERE Any events I missed?
