Smart EQ ForFour
Prime Premium 22kW

Overview

An immaculate Smart ForFour EQ 5-door hatchback electric car. This car has just turned two years old, with the remainder of the manufacturer's warranty and has only done 2,300 miles. It is the 22kW charging model and also has the optional £500 winter pack which adds heated steering wheel, heated rear seats and enhanced insulation to help retain the heat in the cold weather. These have heated front seats as standard. These cars have a high amount of equipment for a small hatchback, including full glass panoramic roof, radar assisted recuperation, emergency breaking, faux leather seats, Android Auto, DAB radio, sat nav, rear parking sensors and more. Study the manufacturer brochure below for the full details.

Don't confuse the 22kW charger with the battery size! All Smart EQ models have a 17.6kWh traction battery, but have either a 7kW or 22kW AC on-board charger. They are a great alternative to a Renault Zoe (22kWh battery version).

For further information, refer to the Smart EQ brochure below.

Range

The range of a vehicle is dictated by the battery capacity, driving style and temperature. Just like a petrol or diesel vehicle, range is reduced is you drive fast or uneconomically. For further details, see Range Explained.

The official range (using the NEDC test cycle) is 93-96 miles. However in the real world, it is around 75 miles in the summer. Range is always less in the winter due to colder temperatures and heating use and will be around 50-60 miles.

Charging

The charge port is on the offside rear wing and is a type2 AC socket. This ForFour has the upgraded 22kW AC charging (standard is 7kW).

Charging on a public 3-phase 22kW AC charger, it will charge at a rate of around 65 miles per hour of charging. 22kW charging times are:

  • 10-80% in 40 mins

  • 0-100% in 1 hour

When using a single phase 7kW AC charger, typically at home, workplace, car parks etc, it will charge at a rate of around 21 miles per hour of charging. 7kW charging times are:

  • 10-80% in 2.5 hours

  • 0-100% in 3 hours

When using the portable charger (granny cable) on a normal mains socket, it charges at 2.3kW as it draws only 10A and adds about 7 miles per hour of charging. The charge times are:

  • 10-80% in 6 hours

  • 0-100% in 8.5 hours

In the meantime, you can try Car Loan Warehouse.
