Smart Electric Drive production launched

The production of the Smart car in its fully electric version has started in the existing Smart plant of Hambach, a city located in the East of France, close to the German border.

Two versions will be available from the start : Coupe & Convertible

Good news: High prices announced for Germany during my test drive in Sept 2010 (30-35 KEUR!) are way reduced and, that's a good thing, are starting around 19 KEUR:
- Smart ED: 18,910 EUR + 65 EUR/month
- Smart ED Cabrio: 22,000 EUR + 65 EUR/month

You can also purchase the battery pack for 4,770 EUR, which brings the total prices to:
- Smart ED: 23,680 EUR
- Smart ED Cabrio: 26,770 EUR

In France we should have the prices - with or without battery pack purchase - and we will be able to deduct the government 5,000 EUR (limited to 20% of the price) super bonus incentive for fully electric cars, which brings the entry model down to 15,128 EUR
This price is above, but close to the Mia Electric prices
