    Well, it can't affect their sales very much.

    They would've come in handy when I used to drive into Manhattan all the time. ;)

    yes, probably a good city car, but a leaf/bolt etc. would probably be just as good.

    Even worse than the Gen1 leaf . . . epa of only 63 miles.
    ie; 15 miles less, and no room for "3+" passengers / luggage.

    80 miles in the spring

    60 miles in winter...?

    How far do typical Smart car drivers need to travel in a day anyway?

    In the winter? Better be less than 22 miles one way.

    There's a guy that shows up with one at the plug-in gatherings, but that's about it.

    The smart ED is cheap in comparison, and will be even cheaper with the optional battery lease.
    The new 75 mile EPA is still too short for me. Shame, half a car space in the garage is more doable.
