New entry-level Smart #1 brings £4k saving

Priced from £31,950, the #1 Pro joins the Pro+ (£35,950), Premium (£38,950) and performance Brabus (£43,450) variants launched in April 2023 and provides a more affordable way into the range.

As with the Pro+, it uses a single-motor, rear-wheel drive format, featuring a 268hp motor mounted on the rear axle but with a smaller 49kWh battery. This delivers an official 193-mile capability compared to the 260 miles from the 62kWh pack in the Pro+.

Performance remains at 0-62mph in 6.7 seconds, while DC charging capability drops slightly to 130kW, enabling a 10-80% top-up in less than 30 minutes.
