At the 2014 Portland International Auto Show smart will have an electric answer for both automotive and cycling enthusiasts interested in cutting edge transportation. The 2014 smart electric drive and ebike are a match made in heaven for the Portland commuter.
Emission-free motoring with an extra dose of driving pleasure – this can only be the smart electric drive. And it’s all down to its powerful drive technology: thanks to the 55 kW electric motor, delivering 96 ft-lbs of torque, the car is impressively quick off the lights and goes from 0 to 60 mph in 11.5 seconds. Plus, with a top speed of 78 mph, the two-seater doesn’t have to shy away from urban expressways. A lithium-ion battery with 17.6 kWh provides enough energy to cover a range of 190 miles.
The smart ebike is no slouch either. Once you’ve parked your smart Electric Drive you are free to zip about the city without the need to find a parking space.
The smart ebike created by the smart designers boasts a clear design idiom and an independent appearance. Depending on the power level selected and the manner of cycling a battery charge can last for more than 60 miles. We listened to what people wanted from a perfect city bike and then came up with some clever solutions such as the integrated USB port for smartphones or energy recuperation during braking.”
Come see both of these next generation vehicles on display in our Luxury Lofts this year in the Mercedes and smart booth.
