Thinking about buying an electric car is an unequivocal symptom of facing a high outlay that is not suitable for all audiences, especially when we talk about electric cars of great size and autonomy. However, and as long as there are no more fast chargers on the road, where do these types of cars make the most sense in the city. And that is why we get a Smart ForTwo EQ for less than 19,000 euros It is extremely tempting, but does this offer have a trick? Let’s find out.

And yes, there are two tricks in the offer of the German utility. The first of them is none other than the financing required by Smart to be able to enjoy said price, and the second is that we need to apply the maximum help of the MOVES III Plan to be able to enjoy the electric ForTwo for 18,017 euros, even when we decide not to opt for the financing of the brand.

This is the electric Smart ForTwo that can be ours for just over 18,000 euros

But before talking about numbers, it is necessary to clarify that the Smart ForTwo that we can take home for just 18,000 euros is associated with a specific configuration. In this way, we must take advantage of a unit that has the access equipment level and with the only engine available for the ForTwo EQ, as well as the 4.6 kW charger.

In this way we find a standard equipment made up of 15-inch wheels, electric and heated exterior mirrors, steering wheel and driver’s seat with height adjustment, LED brake light, digital radio and Cool & Audio package with automatic air conditioning among others.

As far as mechanics are concerned, the Smart ForTwo does not seek to deny its clear status as an urban vehicle with an electric motor that delivers 82 hp and 160 Nm of torque. These figures allow the utility to cover 0 to 100 in 11.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 130 km/h. All this is possible thanks to a 17.6 kWh battery that, under the WLTP cycle, declares a range of 132 kilometers. Fair figures but enough to fulfill its mission in the city.

Now, what are Smart’s requirements to end up paying less than 19,000 euros for a ForTwo EQ? In case of opting for financing, we must face an entry of 5,413.35 euros, thus giving us access to 48 installments of 175 euros and a final installment of 10,990.34 euros. To this we must add an annual mileage limited to 10,000 kilometers, as well as an APR at 10.20%, a TIN at 8.75% and an opening commission of 441.46 euros.

In this way we find total interest of 4,625.84 euros, causing the total price in installments to rise to 25,245.15 euros. Although yes, if we achieve the maximum aid of the MOVES III Plan we can benefit from a total of 7,000 euros, lowering the final figure to a less vertiginous 18,245.15 euros.

We would find ourselves in the same scenario if we paid for a Smart ForTwo of the same configuration in cash. Said operation implies a disbursement of 25,017.85 euros. Similarly, if we have access to the maximum support of MOVES for electric cars, the invoice that we will face will be 18,017.85 euros.

The Smart ForTwo in What car do I buy?

Another interesting option would be the Renault Zoe, model that can end up in our garage for 26,730 euros, a figure on which MOVES has not yet been applied. And if we need a little more space we can opt for the Peugeot e-208, that right now is on sale for 24,920 euros.

But if the Smart ForTwo is yes or yes the choice, we must know that there are other ways to save thousands of euros on the purchase. This is possible thanks to the second-hand marketwhere we can find ForTwo of all generations and with different configurations to suit the client.
