To go along with yesterday’s announcement that the second-generation smart ed will go into production in November, Daimler has released a bunch of new pics of the all-electric city car. Of particular interest are the reworked center-mounted dials, one of which now shows the battery state of charge in analog fashion and the other which shows the battery amps and the coiled charging cord. Everything else looks pretty much as it does in a standard fortwo.
The smart ed should have a range of just over 70 using its 14 kWh lithium-ion battery and a 30 kW electric. For more details on the smart ed and how it’ll make it into customer hands, check out this post.
