Smart ForTwo And ForFour Nightsky Editions Join Merc’s EQ Brand

MercedesEQ subrand will be in full force in Geneva with Smart joining the family with two electric versions of the ForTwo and ForFour.

Offered in the Nightsky Edition, the battery-powered EQ ForTwo Coupe and Cabrio are the first to go on sale this spring, from €28,255 ($34,800) and €31,515 ($38,816), respectively, in Germany, tax included.

They will be followed by the EQ ForFour Nightsky Edition in the third quarter of the year, whose pricing will be announced close to its launch. Both of them feature a fast-charging function.

All Smart vehicles with electric drive come with a 4.6 kW on-board charger as standard. This provides for fast recharging of a drained battery – in less than 3.5 hours at a wallbox or in under six hours at a domestic wall socket (10-80 percent in each case)

However, before arriving in showrooms, the two cars will be brought to the Geneva Motor Show, where the Daimler-owned brand will highlight some of their strong points.

Get ready to hear the word ‘Brabus’ a lot, as the tuner was responsible for adding the standard Exterior Style Package. It comprises of a high-gloss deep black-finished front spoiler and side skirts, with contrasting Pacific Blue elements, and roof-mounted spoiler, on the EQ ForTwo Coupe, with the EQ ForTwo Cabrio adding a black soft top.

The side mirror caps sport a Pacific Blue color as well, and the 16-inch alloy wheels, with a black look, wear Brabus‘ signature all over them. Rounding up the list of updates on the outside are the EQ and Nightsky logos.

Inside, the three-door EVs have a two-tone look, with more Pacific Blue accents, Brabus sports pedals, door sills, ‘Smart EQ ForTwo’ shift lever knob, and ‘tailor made’ handbrake lever. Standard features include the Comfort Package, Stowage Space Package, and others.

In the case of the new Smart EQ ForFour Nightsky Edition, this one shares some exterior detachable parts with the ForFour CrossTown. Pacific Blue accents are found on the front spoiler, side skirts, and rear underride guard.

The interior is in the same vein as the EQ ForTwo Nightsky, with a dual-tone look, more Pacific Blue parts, and special EQ and Nightsky logos, in addition to the Brabus add-ons.
