Smart announces the end of its EQ Fortwo

Smart is closing its order books for the EQ Fortwo from April 2023. According to German media outlet Smart Emotion, production will continue until mid-2024 due to long delivery times. But then, the EQ Fortwo will no longer be built.

The reason is simple: the brand is going in a new direction, now building cars as part of a joint venture with Geely. Their first model, the Smart #1, can already be pre-ordered. Apart from the name, the new EV has little in common with the original small cars. It is based on Geely’s SEA platform and is an impressive 4.27 metres long. The electric drive unit has an output of 200 kW, and the 66 kWh battery provides up to 440 kilometres WLTP range.

Smart already took the EQ Fourfour out of its rage at the end of 2021 and stopped making it in early 2022. It was only a matter of time before the Smart EQ Fourtwo met the same fate.

It seems to be a somewhat emotional goodbye. Smart Emotion reports that there is an unofficial „final EDITION“. It is a special initiative by German Smart dealers and limited to 150 vehicles.

It is available as a convertible and as a coupe. The vehicles are regular, fully-equipped Fortwo prime line models with the “exclusive package.” Accordingly, the convertible costs 31,740 euros and the coupe 28,695 euros (before deductions).

    I want a ForTwo as an SUV is too much car for me and I want easy parking. Unfortunately here in New Zealand the only ones available are old petrol models with funny transmission and EVs with 100km highway range that take 6 hours to charge AC only. Even buying those is a gamble as there is no manufacturer support.

    Such a shame. Have the last model EQ sold in U.S. as a cabrio. Bought for TOAD service but actually love driving it as a weekender and always wondered why MB never figured out how to market here in the states, but hey, even the old countries are gonna get axed. Guess I will never be able to get rid of it now… or at least til service and parts become impossible and we all know how ALL of the manufacturers build in planned obsolescence
