Engadget Review

A utilitarian EV that’s fun to drive around with the top down as long as you’re cool with a rough ride and infotainment system that’s lacking.

Score Breakdown

Kelley Blue Book
The 2018 Smart Fortwo is a 2-seat electric commuter car big on style and maneuverability, but short on range and accommodations.

The Car Connection
The 2018 Smart ForTwo, now sold only as an electric vehicle, remains the easiest car in the U.S. to park on crowded streets—and low battery range will keep it mostly urban anyway.

Car and Driver
Even Smart’s fashionable urban audience demands a certain level of practicality. In many areas, the Electric Drive cabriolet might not meet that threshold, even if it is a good EV.

If you want a new EV convertible, the Smart Fortwo ... Cabrio isn't perfect, but it's your only choice.

CNET
The 2018 Smart Fortwo is an interesting, but ultimately very niche electric car. However, it's the high price and relatively low cruising range that stay our recommendation.
