Here's a little car that's not short on electric range.
The Smart Electric Drive is available in both coupe and convertible form.
The Euro NEDC range of the pair is estimated at 99 miles for the coupe and 96 miles for the convertible.
We're still waiting on US figures, which will be given out closer to launch.
Its single electric motor puts out just 80 horsepower and 118 pound-feet of torque.
Its top speed is limited to 81 mph, in part to maximize range.
The battery is a lithium ion affair, with a capacity of 17.6 kWh.
Smart claims it can charge the battery in as little as 2.5 hours, although it didn't specify the kind of charger required for this speed.
The Smart Fortwo Electric Drive launches in the US in spring 2017, with the cabriolet to follow in the summer.
Pricing is not yet determined.
