The next Frankfurt Motor Show, from 15 to 25 September to host the latest in light green ink. One of these 'green' players will be the third-generation Smart ForTwo Electric Drive or, in other words, the electric Smart ForTwo.

According to data announced by the firm of Daimler, this vehicle is capable of reaching a top speed of 120 km / h, accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h below 13 seconds and reach 60 km / h from a standing start within five seconds, data that is not bad for being a largely urban car.

In the previous generation, the time was about eight hours, a figure that should be similar in this third generation. In terms of design, the electric Smart ForTwo is not much different from his brothers Diesel and gasoline.

One of its hallmarks is found in the specific color 'green fresco' on the part of the body, aesthetic resource that anticipates the clear environmental message in this release. Finally, if you are also fond of sports and other healthy activities, Smart did not want to miss the opportunity to present their 'eBike' power, ie, a new electric bicycle.
