If you’re an environmentally friendly city slicker, look no further than the Smart Fortwo Electric Drive. This subcompact EV can fit in almost any parking spot, making it the ideal vehicle for people who have difficulty finding parking on city streets.

Smart has dropped the gasoline-powered version of the Fortwo, only producing the Fortwo Electric Drive in either a coupe or convertible format. Coupe models get 124 MPGe in the city and 94 on the highway. Opting for the convertible drops those numbers to 112 city and 91 highway.

The Fortwo has a smaller electric range than most models. It is only capable of traveling 58 miles before having to be recharged. The subcompact EV needs three hours at a 240-volt charger for a full charge.
