To support the transition from fossil fuel powered cars to more sustainable electric alternatives, smart's EQ range is growing consistently year on year.
The smart fortwo and forfour are compact city cars that feature the latest EQ technology, giving them excellent range and quick charging times. The smart EQ fortwo and forfour product range makes the most of this revolutionary technology to bring you an improved driving experience, saving you money in the long-term.
How investing in a smart EQ fortwo or forfour benefits you and makes a difference.
Road tax is zero
Nobody is a fan of paying road tax. Thankfully, being an electric vehicle, the smart EQ fortwo and forfour product range sits in the lowest tax band, meaning you pay zero road tax.
Zero emissions emitted
One of the biggest issues with fossil fuelled cars is how much carbon dioxide (amongst other harmful gasses) they produce. The smart EQ fortwo and forfour product range emit zero emissions, meaning you are doing your bit to save the environment.
Lower running costs
Although the potential to travel up to 70 miles on one charge may not sound like a lot compared to a fossil fuelled alternative, it only costs a few pounds to fully charge a smart EQ fortwo and forfour. With free road tax on top, you can see the attraction.
Because the smart EQ fortwo and forfour product range emits zero emissions, businesses benefit from lower Company Car tax and 100% first-year capital allowances.
Buying a smart EQ fortwo and forfour product range means you qualify for the Office of Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) car grant, offering up to £3,500 off the cost of the car. Other benefits include not having to pay the congestion charge in London and free parking in a number of major cities.
