The battery-electric models from smart are the first series-produced vehicles of the Mercedes-Benz Cars EQ family. The new EQ control app smart simplifies access to electric mobility.
The smart EQ fortwo (combined power consumption: 13.1 - 12.9 kWh/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 0 g/km) and smart EQ forfour (combined power consumption: 13.2 – 13.1 kWh/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 0 g/km) are accompanied by the launch of an optimised charging technology as well as a new app around electric mobility.
This app combines numerous items of car-related information, such as the current charge level, the control of vehicle functions such as pre-entry climate control and charge management, and displays the corresponding information in personalised form. Another new feature is the 22 kW on-board charger with fast charging function.
smart EQ control app: The perfect digital companion
The new smart EQ control app, which will probably be available from mid-2018, is simple, straightforward and entertaining in typical smart style. With the personalised app, customers can always keep their eye on the current status of their vehicle and control the pre-entry climate control from their smartphone. In addition, intelligent push notifications inform the driver about important events around their electric smart. The built-in charging service now also makes it even easier to find the nearest charging station and to make the payment.

Zero-emissions driving is also made easier by the new 22 kW fast charger. This on-board charger permits three-phase charging at public charging stations or at a wallbox; the high-voltage battery is charged from 10 to 80 percent in under 40 minutes.
Smart has been selling only electric vehicles in the USA, Canada and Norway since 2017, and from 2020 it will be marketing only electric battery-powered vehicles in Germany and Western Europe, too. The rest of the world will follow suit shortly after.
