July 10, 2024 Andrew Cheng

The smart #3 has just been launched in Malaysia! Compared to the smart #1, the electric SUV coupe has a sportier appeal, and it is a slightly faster EV too with an impressive 0-100kmph time of only 3.7 seconds.

There are three variants of the smart #3. There’s the base Pro model (RM175,000), mid-tier Premium (RM215,000), and range-topping Brabus variant for a cool RM255,000. Standard warranty for the EV include an 8-year/200,000km high-voltage battery warranty, 8-year/150,000km high-voltage component warranty, as well as a 4-year unlimited mileage vehicle warranty.

Of the three models, the smart #3 Brabus is naturally the fastest version with the aforementioned 0-100kmph time of 3.7 seconds. This is thanks to its dual motor setup that outputs a total of 428PS and 543Nm of torque; exact same figures as the smart #1 Brabus. In terms of range, the #3 Brabus can go up to 415km (WLTP) on a single charge from its 66kWh battery.

As for the base Pro and mid-tier Premium trims of the smart #3, both models feature a single electric motor driving the rear wheels that outputs 272PS and 343Nm of torque for a 0-100kmph time of 5.8 seconds. Range wise, the Pro’s 49kWh battery offers up to 325km of WLTP range, while the Premium’s larger 66kWh cell (same capacity as the Brabus model) can deliver up to 455km WLTP range.

Charging wise, the Brabus and Premium variants of the smart #3 support 22kW AC charging, which can charge up the battery from 10% to 80% in under three hours. smart Malaysia didn’t detail the Pro model’s AC charging speed, so we suspect it is the same 7.2kW onboard charger found on the equivalent smart #1 Pro.

When it comes to DC charging, the smart #3 can pull 150kW of power for a 10%-80% charging time of under 30 minutes.

Those who register their very own smart #3 by 31 July this month will also receive a number of freebies, including a 22kW smartCharge home charger and a 6-item accessories package. A smart Tour Brand Roadshow will also be held at several locations throughout Malaysia, where both the smart #3 and smart #1 will be showcased to customers.

The first stop of the tour is in Pavilion Bukit Jalil (11 – 14 July) before moving on to Setia Alam Convention Centre (20 – 21 July); Gurney Plaza, Penang (4 – 8 September); and Mid Valley South Key, Johor Bahru (19 – 22 September).
