Fresh and innovative is how you describe the smart. The company already knew they would develop electric drive from the same platform as the gasoline vehicle so no compromises with space or design were made. The 16.5 kWh lithium-ion battery sits under the seats where the gas tank was and the 30 kW electric motor along with the charging unit, single shift gearbox and drivetrain cooling unit are packaged in the rear of the vehicle.
