Smart bringing a zero-emissions mobility package to Frankfurt with the Smart ForTwo EV and its accompanying ebike.
Smart has unveiled the upcoming 2012 ForTwo Electric Drive along with its new ebike.
The ForTwo Electric Drive in its third generation comes with a 55 kW (75 PS / 74 bhp) electric motor which enables the urban minicar to hit for the first time a top speed of 120 km/h (75 mph) and do the 0 to 100 km/h sprint in 'under 13 seconds'. The 17.6 kWh battery pack supplied by Deutsche Accumotive on the ForTwo Electric Drive is good for a range of up to 140 km (87 miles) in city traffic.
The Smart EV will make its public debut at the Frankfurt motor show next month and goes on sale in Europe next spring.
Also coming to Frankfurt is the Smart ebike, which will go on sale in the spring of 2012 too. The ebike features a 250 watt electric motor mounted on the rear wheel hub with a 400 watt battery for storing energy housed in the the center of the bikes frame.
The electric bicycle also has a USB port for charging a smart phone and can be mounted on the rear of the Smart ForTwo Electric Drive (via a bike rack) for total zero-emissions mobility.
The ebike is priced at just under €2,900 in Germany.
