Toronto, Ontario – Smart Canada has established a pre-ordering program for the upcoming 2013 Smart Fortwo Electric Drive.
Interesting consumers can visit a Smart dealer to put down a deposit, guaranteeing delivery as soon as the first production units start to arrive in Canada later this year.
The Fortwo Electric Drive uses a 55 kW magneto-electric motor that provides 96 lb-ft of torque, propelling the vehicle from zero to 60 km/h in six seconds. The lithium-ion battery gives a range of over 140 kilometres on a single charge, and the car has a top speed of over 120 km/h. The model coming to Canada is the third generation of the electric Smart.
