The electric version of the Smart is arguably the best pick of the range, as the characteristics of the zero-emissions powertrain fit the miniscule car really well.
The instant torque combined with the tiny footprint of the two-seater city car make it ideal for dealing with city driving, not to mention really fun.
But seeing an original Smart EV getting driven within an inch of its life and not break a sweat really impressed us. Clearly, there’s more fun to be had with this little nugget of a car than anyone would have thought, as portrayed in the video posted by Kyle Conner on YouTube.
Of course, making the tiny Smart spin its wheels and behave like the world’s smallest rally car on dirt roads must have involved removing a fuse or two, in order to disable the strict and permanent electronic stability control.
It may not be advisable, but by the looks of it, it sure looks like the way to make the Smart behave like a proper hoon mobile.
In addition, the small dimensions and weight allow the electric Smart to take some impressive off-road beating. Having the motor at the rear powering the same axle also makes it almost the same with a Porsche 911, right?
