How long does it take to charge?

Smart offers a 22kW on-board charge facility to make battery replenishment even easier. Whether this is standard-fit for British models is to be confirmed, but with it installed recharging at a public rapid charge facility will take an EQ model from 10%-80% in less than 40 minutes.

Recharge rates for the 17.6kWh battery on a domestic wallbox have yet to be confirmed, but under the outgoing NEDC efficiency tests Smart claims a range of 70 miles for the Fortwo Coupe based on the realistic WLTP testing measures.
