smart ED review

Nice review.  Seemed to be totally honest about the good and the not so good.

I like my 450 and the Smart ED seems like a cool car, but for https://www.autotrader.ca/a/smart/fortwo electric drive/newmarket/ontario/5_49364892_on20080219170250766/?showcpo=ShowCpo&ncse=no&orup=1_4_4&pc=N3C 1A1&sprx=100 - it's still a bit steep.

 

Any idea who built the drivetrain for these?

 

I loved my 450 and never liked the gas 451 transmission or engine. The 451 ED changed all that. Loved my 451 ED, just wish it had a bit more range.

 

The drivetrain on this generation was 100% Daimler-Benz, if I'm not mistaken. Earlier iterations had been co-developed with Tesla, but the final ED was all Benz.

Good to know. I still think I like the i3 better because of the optional gas and having four seats, but it remains to be seen how these things all age.
