In some ways, the ForTwo Electric has come full circle for the company, given that the original Smart concept was for an electric vehicle. At the time, EVs werent yet considered ready for the mainstream by automakers and the concept was changed to gas-powered. Many people already think the conventional Smart ForTwo is an electric car, so its probably a change for the best.
In any event, you can now rent the tiny electric two-seater as an hourly rental under the Connect by Hertz car sharing program. Although it lacks the utility of larger cars such as the Nissan Leaf or Chevy Volt, itll be a boon when fighting for parking in the city or dodging traffic.
The Smart ForTwo Electric can only go about 60-70 miles on a full battery and is limited to a top speed of 60 mphso is best suited for the city.
