Electric Smart being tested in Canada?
Note that this lithium-powered pack has nothing to see with the current EV conversions offered in countries like the UK (where 100 of them are running on a special lease), where they are equipped with more conventional Sodium-Nickel-Chloride batteries that only add 60 kg (130 pounds) of weight to the gasoline counterparts. With this latter configuration, the EV Smart range lowers to 110 km (70 miles).
(If you wondered about the pic. Yes, I drove a Smart CDI on a gravel road, it served as a rural car for a few days).
