Used electric smarts are a great buy.
April 29, 2019
Second generation electric smarts are slower & smaller than the latest version. The ones coming off a 3 year lease are dirt cheep to buy & run. Mileage on them generally is low, because they are typically used as a second car. For around town, grabbing a few sacks of groceries what could be better? The utilitarian ability of the little car is really surprising. The front passenger seat folds almost flat, allowing space for long stuff. It is quick enough off the line and even has a little glass roof that allows you get some sun while you are zipping around town. I average 90 miles on a charge and just plug it into the 110 volt outlet in my garage. For the cost of a 5 year old crappy Yaris, you can have a 3 year old smart EV and reduce your carbon footprint.
