Why Lease A Smart Car?
Despite having just three cars in its line-up, smart has built a reputation as the go-to manufacturer for small yet perfectly proportioned vehicles. All models are now fully electric, with the Mercedes-Geely merger paving the way for the development of new electric vehicles.
If you’re looking for a small, quiet and clean electric runabout for your day-to-day journeys, a smart lease deal could be the perfect, affordable pick for you.
The smart Range At Vanarama
Currently, smart offers three cars – all of which are compact city cars only available in all-electric form.
smart is best known for its entry-level smart EQ fortwo coupe, a two-seat city car. The current third-generation model is only a little bigger than its predecessors and boasts a claimed electric range of 81 miles. Smart also offers a convertible version, called the smart EQ fortwo cabrio, which features a folding electric fabric roof.
The smart EQ forfour is larger four-seat city car at about 800mm longer than the fortwo. It remains the same width, which creates enough room for a second row of seats. Like the fortwo, it is a clean and quiet electric car, and has a claimed range of up to 78 miles.
For those wanting a compact electric car lease, a fortwo or forfour can be an eye-catching and cost-effective choice.
Hybrid And Electric smart Leasing Options
No petrol, diesel or hybrid powertrains are available from smart – so it’s a straightforward choice if you want to lease a small electric car. The cars all use the same 82hp electric motor and battery pack, which offers up a usable 17.6kWh of energy.
All cars accelerate from 0-62mph in just under 12 seconds and can also reach 81mph, so there’s more than enough performance on offer to tackle town driving and short trips. And, like all electric cars, the power delivery of the electric motor makes them feel quick.
All three will take less than 40 minutes to go from a 10-80% charge on a 22kW standalone or home charging point. On a 7kW home wallbox charger, the same state of charge will take less than 3-and-a-half hours to reach. You can even plug a smart into a standard 3-pin socket and it’ll charge the same amount in less than 9 hours.
The smart EQ control app is also available for Apple and Android devices – it lets you schedule charging times, find charging points, check the car’s charge and find out how to drive the car more efficiently. The app also lets you precondition the car’s cabin before departure.
Every new smart EQ comes with an 8-year/62,000-mile battery warranty as well, so you shouldn’t have to worry much about battery failures or problems.
