Smart Fortwo Electric Drive Seeks Sales Redemption

The inception of the Smart Fortwo Electric Drive is promising to its frustrated German parent Daimler AG. The gasoline-powered coupe dropped by 66% in sales in 2009 after an awesome debut in 2008. Its lowest point came this January after selling a dismal 278 units.

Its electric version may have a positive change in sales by using its green appeal. The latest e-microcar produced by the German automaker has good optional features for the US market such as surround-sound audio system, GPS navigation, its Kinetic Green appearance, and cruise control package that ranges from $1600 to $225.

The e-version of Smart Fortwo claims to run up to 90 miles at full charge and can be charged from zero to 100% in only 6 hours.
