The smart #1 EV has finally been launched in Malaysia, and we now know how much the electric crossover costs on our shores. Surprise surprise, the price range of the EV is slightly lower than the company’s original estimate of RM200,000 to RM250,000.
So what are the prices? Well, the base Pro model costs RM189,000, while the mid-tier Premium variant goes for RM219,000. As for the most powerful Brabus model, it is priced at RM249,000. After driving the smart #1 Brabus for quite a bit, it’s definitely the model to get if you want the best performance for the money.
Aside from that, a slew of launch packages were also announced, including a complimentary home charger worth RM3,200, an accessories package, and even a V2L adapter.
Both the Pro and Premium models of the smart #1 feature a single 200kW motor driving the rear wheels that outputs 272PS and 343Nm of torque, allowing the EV to go from 0-100kmph in only 6.7 seconds with a top speed of 180kmph. However, the Pro model has a smaller 49kWh battery with up to 315km of range (WLTP), while the Premium model has a 66kWh battery with up to 440km of range (WLTP).
As for the more powerful smart #1 Brabus pictured here, it comes with another electric motor at the front – making it all-wheel drive – for a very respectable total output of 428PS and 543Nm of torque. How fast can it complete the century sprint with this kind of setup? A mere 3.9 seconds; very impressive.
The Brabus variant also has the same 66kWh battery as the Premium model, but given that it’s a higher-powered model, it has a lower range of up to 400km (WLTP).
To recap, the smart #1 retails from RM189,000 for the base Pro model, going up to RM219,000 and RM249,000 for the Premium and Brabus versions respectively. If you’d like to learn more about the electric crossover, check out our driving impressions of the Brabus model.
