The Smart Forfour has undoubted plus points. For a start it's one of the least expensive electric cars on sale to buy outright, undercutting both the Renault Zoe (if you don’t lease the battery) and the VW e-Up. It's also zippy and easy to drive in town, thanks in part to its super-tight turning circle, and it's pretty well equipped, too. However, it's not all rosey. The ride and handling aren't very good, the boot is tiny, there's not a vast amount of space inside, but worst of all for an electric car, the range is very poor next to its best rivals. Unless you literally need an electric car solely for town, the range issue is the biggest reason that we’d suggest going for the Renault Zoe instead.
