The smart #3 SUV coupe is due to be revealed at Auto Shanghai 2023 on 18 April. Unlike the smart fortwo, the smart #3 is expected to be a similar size to the Volkswagen ID.4 – in other words it has grown, to be much bigger than the original smart fortwo.
Few details about the #3 have been released so far, apart from sketches. However its likely to be available with either one or two electric motors, the latter providing all-wheel drive.
The smart #1 is set to arrive in the UK in summer this year. With a 66kWh battery it has an electric range of up to 273 miles and it can be rapid charged from 10% to 80% in 30 minutes at a 150kW rapid charger. Smart has partnered with Digital Charging Solutions (DCS) to give access to more than 360,000 chargers across Europe. The smart #1 has three trim levels: Premium, Pro+ and Brabus.
smart was established as a global joint venture between Mercedes-Benz AG and the Chinese brand Geely on 8 January 2020.
