Our drive

Electric or conventional: the powerful engines and motors from smart make driving fun all around the city.

Installing the engine and transmission at the rear makes the extremely compact design of the smart possible.


The engines and motors

smart electric motor

The 60 kW electric motor.

Full torque from the very first turn of the motor – and seamless acceleration right from the off. The electric motor provides for a whole new form of mobility – and plenty of driving fun into the bargain. And all this virtually without a sound.

The 45 kW and 52 kW engine.

The 45 KW engine and the 52 KW engine, each with three cylinders, ensure plenty of fun behind the wheel – and contribute to the low overall weight of the smart. This is because the lightweight design results in lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. And this not only reduces the strain on the environment, but also on your wallet, thanks to lower petrol costs.

The 66 kW turbo engine.
The 66 kW three-cylinder turbo engine guarantees sporty and dynamic driving enjoyment – even on short journeys. And thanks to the efficient acceleration you reach your destination even more quickly.

Automatic start/stop system.
A standard feature: the automatic start/stop system automatically shuts down the engine when the vehicle is stationary – reducing fuel consumption. If desired, the automatic start/stop system can be manually deactivated via a switch.
