Getting back to the EV: as we know, a number of European countries are mulling over the idea of banning cars fueled by petrol or diesel by 2025 because of the negative effect on nature. The manufacturer of microcars and subcompacts Smart took care of the possible changes in the auto industry beforehand. Hence it came to Paris with the all-electric vehicles. The range is still the same - Fortwo, Forfour and the natty Cabrio – and that makes Smart the first carmaker all models of which run on electricity alone.

These superminis are so lovely to look at! Despite the small dimensions of the two-seater and his brother convertible, they are able to transport people plus a few bags in the trunk, whereas the Forfour can house a whole suitcase (and two more full-size adults). The interior and exterior features are standard across the range. The green tinted lines on the flanks and the rear underline the eco-friendly feelings. Yet we see that the Cabrio’s coloring has been reworked a bit to make it stand out.

The EVs proved the point of «being built for the cities» but «being perfect for escaping it» is arguable. You can coax around 100 miles from the Smarts equipped with 17.6kW electric motor delivering 81bhp. Then they are to relax for at least 2.5 hours and recharge the batteries. The average acceleration time of 11.8 seconds and the top speed of 80mph don’t favor the long trips as well.

Such a compact and maneuverable car is excellent for the city dwellers to cruise around and get through a traffic jam. Don’t you want this cute four-wheeled friend?
