Smart EQ Fortwo Cabrio Home Charging Guide

The Smart EQ Fortwo Cabrio is essentially the iconic ForTwo city car but with the addition of a fold-down roof, making it one of the very few fully electric convertibles that you can buy. As you might expect with the small form factor, the Smart EQ Fortwo Cabrio is equipped with a rather small 17.2kWh battery which provides around 81 miles of range. With that in mind, you might not be doing any road trips around the country in this vehicle but it will definitely help you get around a city like London congestion charge-free if you don't fancy taking the tube.

Charging the Smart EQ Fortwo Cabrio from zero to full takes just under three hours using a dedicated 7.4kW home charger like the ones below. No rapid charging option is available on the Fortwo Cabrio however if you choose to have the optional 22kW on-board charger fitted, you can expect a full charge in under an hour when using a 22kW charge point.
