Lower running costs.

Because the smart EQ fortwo and forfour produce zero driving emissions*, you’re doing your bit for the environment and making cities a cleaner, more pleasant place to be.

But you’re also doing yourself a favour by reducing running costs. All smart EQ fortwo and forfour models are in Vehicle Excise Duty Band A, so you’ll pay no road tax. You’ll also qualify for the Office of Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) car grant[2], offering up to £3,500 off the cost of the car. And you may benefit from other savings such as free or subsidised parking.

You’ll even be exempt from the London Congestion Charge.

3. Continuing your journey.

To end the charging process, first open the vehicle. You can then unlock the charge socket - disconnect the charging cable first of all from the vehicle and then from the mains. Now you can continue your journey.

4. Domestic power socket.

You can also charge your smart at almost any standard domestic power socket . All you need for this purpose is a special charging cable which is available for the smart EQ fortwo and forfour models.

You can also charge your smart using any domestic power socket from 20-100% in around 6 hours.
