The 55kW powered Smart ED can be ordered now. Price start with less then €19.000 plus monthly fee of €70 for battery lease or less then €24.000 including the battery pack.
With a 22kW 3-phase onboard-charger, the 17.6kWh battery can be charged within 1 hour.
of what I understand on the site from smart, they work together with SPX

Has anyone got or seen one of their Power Xpress chargers? The idea of a J1772 with 12 - 32A adjustment is quite interesting.
A 3Phase charger. Really?! Who would have thought this could be possible even in a low volume, (relatively) low price BEV ... /sacasm
maybe with the daimler-tesla connection, this charger is already meant to be in the Model S!
The model S has 2 chargeports! Maybé 1 tesla-supercharger, and 1 3-phase on the other side of the car!
Well, it turns the Model S probably isn't going to work for us as the primary "family" car or whatever you want to call it, but I do still have an itch to experience life with an EV, which I'm quite convinced is the future of cars. So now I'm thinking of getting a small commuter EV for my own use during the week. This is probably a smarter way for me to get a taste of EV ownership without too many compromises.
Does anyone have any experience or thoughts on the Smart Electric? It seems to have a low CG, no tranny, more than enough range for my needs. I'd appreciate any insight anyone has on this car.
