The 2013 Smart ForTwo ED is a significant upgrade over the previous models. The first upgrade is its improved battery, which now has an average life span of 10 years. The ForTwo ED also received a massive power upgrade. This 3rd generation EV has a constant cruising output of 47 hp and a maximum output of 74 hp. The ForTwo ED's acceleration from 0 to 60 mph is now a respectable 11 seconds, less than half that of its predecessor. Top speed is now 75 mph, which make freeway driving much more practical the the 65 mph limit of the previous edition.
Most welcome to fans of the tiny city car will be the elimination of the clunky gearbox found in gas versions. The ED accelerates smoothly from 0-75 without changing gears.
