Am I making the right choice?

  1. You can't think of it as an "investment" as you won't get your money back. (Although that could be the wrong word as I'm guessing that English isn't your first language).

  2. Investments are investments in any language πŸ˜‰ I know it's a depreciating asset, but calling it an investment makes me feel better 🀣🀣🀣

  3. I've got a gas powered one and love it. i live in a smaller city (100k pop), and work as a field technician in a much bigger city (600k pop) a half hour drive away by highway near Toronto Canada. i've had mine for about 6 months now and its fantastic. i dont know about europe, but here it draws as much attention as a Ferrari. i see kids pointing, just last week i was at a stop light with the window down and some girls waiting to cross yelled "nice car" at me, sarcastically im sure. i've had people come up to me in parking lots and ask me about it.

  4. I'm 196cm tall myself and I must say I didn't really have that impression when I sat in the one they have on display - then again haven't really driven in on just yet.

  5. I live in a large-ish US city (population = 750K) and I have had the electric Smart (2018) for about nine months now. No longer worried about range, have not yet gotten close to being out of battery, absolutely adore it. Best city car ever, would buy again in a heartbeat.

  6. Glad to hear 😊😊😊 I'm really leaning towards making this big step soon. The city I'm in is about 1.3M, but I see most charging stations are always free.

  7. Per dirti io sono di Roma e giro con una Smart 2008 Diesel, mai dato problemi, solo alla batteria ma con 50€ risolvi. La metto ovunque, sono 1.90 e ci sto molto comodo

  8. Come me 😊 diciamo che io visti i costi della benzina sarei più tentato dall'elettrico, a Milano credo che, come a Roma, sia una delle uniche macchine con le quali si possa trovar parcheggio facilmente.

  9. You didn't mention the model of smart you want to buy. If it's the 451 I would say skip it but if it's the 453 go for it. The 453 has a longer range is a wider more stable car and handles much better than the 451. I can easily go 50 to 80 mi without having to be charged, I have a 2017 453 and a level 2 charger which you can install quite easily in a house can recharge the car in under two and a half hours. But this will be different for Italy. Might be better it might be worse I don't know. Check out the Wikipedia page. But here in the United States the 451 can "brick" the main power pack if the 12 volt battery fails. I don't know whether that's the case where you are or whether you have support that if it does fail it is still under warranty, but the 453 does not have that problem. There is no warranty for a failed main battery pack here in the US , and the cost of a new one is very high, more than the value of the car.

  10. Planning on going with a Smart Fortwo EQ - I just fell in love with it instantly. I still have a bit to go though, as I'm getting my place refurbished at the moment and am also in the process to installing a wall charger with solar panels :)
