Disclaimer:

I go not own a Smart Electric Drive or other Smart Car. I do not work for Mercedes Benz, Smart, or any other related entity.

I admit to being interested in the Smart Electric Drive, but have yet to so much as test drive one. I have no interest in a petrel fueled Smart. The Smart ED has no transmission, high torque, lower center of gravity (due to battery placement). At 100+ mpge, and small nimble size it appears to be the perfect urban commuter car.
