Why Lease a Smart EQ ForFour?
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
It will surprise no one to learn that the Smart EQ ForFour isn’t exactly the most spacious of city cars – and that goes for occupants and storage. More so the latter, as the cabin is cleverly laid out to accommodate drivers and passengers in relative comfort, at the expense of boot space. A Mercedes S-Class it isn’t – the car measures just under 3.5 metres in length – however, it does seat 4, and that’s the big difference between it and sister car the Smart ForTwo. If it’s just you and 1 other, the seats fold down for a good bit more cargo capacity. Either way, this car is designed to be small and you’ll be happy enough zooming around town in it.
When a tiny car meets electric power, running costs become almost non-existent. Depending on where you charge, costs are negligible – a full charge of the battery should cost around £2.50 at home, which can be done overnight on a 3-pin plug. That’s enough for 78 miles of motoring – at least officially. If statistics can be believed, that’ll do you for a whole week in the city. The Smart EQ ForFour will cost you very little day-to-day elsewhere, with zero-rated tax, minimal servicing and low insurance. The list price might make you baulk a little, but there are some excellent leasing deals available that make the ForFour a bargain.
Smart EQ ForFour vs Competitors
It’s a good car when doing the very specific things it’s good at, and it does those things better than anything else. In other scenarios (anywhere outside of city driving, basically) it’s not so strong – but can still cope.
Yes, all Smart models are electric now, with a 17.2kWh battery pack and an 80hp electric motor.
Being all-electric, there’s a reduction in complication. The platform has also been around long enough for the kinks to be ironed out. So we’d say, yes, it probably is quite reliable.
You can plug the Smart EQ ForFour into a rapid charger and suck power out at 22kW. That’s ‘quite quick’ rather than rapid – but the smallish battery capacity means you’ll be on your way again in around 40 minutes.
Sort of. The brand started life as a project by Swatch, the Swiss watch brand, before being purchased by Daimler, the owners of Mercedes. The first car launched into Europe in 1998, with the brand continuing to be run by Mercedes. The latest models are built in a partnership with Renault, bringing some French flair.
