Back in June of 2010, Smart showed off the second-generation Fortwo Electric Drive (ED) model. At that time, the automaker revealed that 250 EDs would ship stateside, with the first deliveries scheduled for that October. The asking price to lease Smart's battery-powered Fortwo was listed at $599 a month for 48 months (plus $2,500 due at signing, for a total of $31,252 before taxes or any potential government rebates).
A Smart spokesman has now revealed that the automaker is close to announcing the customer delivery schedule for its ED in the U.S. Smart told Green Car Advisor that a notification will come "in very short order." The automaker continued, stating "Some of the 250 (EDs) that will be available for lease have not been spoken for, so folks that are interested are encouraged to sign up now." If becoming a Fortwo ED lessee sounds tempting, then hit up Smart's Team 250 site for a chance to get in on the battery-powered action.
