smart #3 – first images leaked shows larger EV SUV

These photos are our first look at the second model in the refreshed smart line-up. It will be called the smart #3 as evident from the badging on the rear hatch, and looks to be an SUV with a coupe-like roofline larger than the smart #1.

The smart brand today is a joint venture between Mercedes-Benz’s parent company Daimler and Proton’s shareholder Geely. Like the smart #1, the new smart #3 will be built on Geely’s Sustainable Experience Architecture (SEA) electric car platform.

Homologation documents from China reveals that the smart #3 measures 4,440 mm long, 1,800 mm wide and 1,600 mm tall with a wheelbase of 2,785 mm. As a comparison, the smart #1 measures 4,270 mm long, 1,822 mm wide and 1,636 mm tall, with a 2,750 mm wheelbase.

The documentation also refers to two output options, a 268 hp version that’s likely to be the same one used in the non-Brabus smart #1, as well as a baseline 154 hp version for those who don’t have much of a need for speed and prefer a more entry-level price tag.

  • The high powered one had better solve the range issue (with smaller model).

    I always yawn when reading car news nowadays not because the articles are boring but the car itself. It always the so called SUV which in fact is not a real SUV as it is useless when going offroad. Second reason is, electric. Only few articles that excite me and make me go full Owen Wilson’s “WOW”.

    If range is important in ev cars the seal byd which is slated to be produce in Thailand next year if identical to the one in china will have 700 km range in full charge which is amazing and that car is a Tesla competitor , the byd blade battery tech is the best though

    How come the SUV is shorter (height-wise) than the hatchback? This means the #3 is the bigger car with a smaller interior.
