$139 a month for 36 months with $1,433 due at signing. The Smart ForTwo Electric Drive is both the cheapest full electric vehicle to lease, and it’s practically the cheapest model of all to lease when you consider the low down-payment. It’s best for urbanites who have access to a charging station, drive sparingly, and need nothing more than two seats and a tiny cargo hold. Those in warmer climates may want to consider the open-air Cabrio version that’s leasing for $199 a month.
