The new smart experienc-e app takes users on a virtual tour of the smart electric drive model range. A 3D model, range simulator, and explanation of many electric features make this a fun and intuitive experience.

How do you research and prep for an electric test drive? In 2017, interested drivers can get their info from websites, magazines, catalogs – and apps.

smart, the only automotive brand to date to electrify its entire conventionally powered fleet, is also a pioneer in the digital realm. The carmaker’s new smart experience-e app offers a useful virtual, three-dimensional, and extremely detailed guide to the electric smart fortwo electric drive, smart forfour electric drive, and smart cabrio electric drive models.

A 3D model of the smart electric drive provides users with a welcome initial overview of all key electric components and features. These features – like the car’s charging port or wall box – can be selected by touch to provide further explanations of all major details and technical data.

Range simulator and component scanner

Inside the cockpit of a smart electric drive model, app users can access information on further features and panels. The app’s component scanner automatically recognizes these via the smartphone camera and presents all relevant related information, e. g. on the charge meter, which replaces the rev counter in electric vehicles.

Finally, a range simulator can calculate the car’s individual, realistic range based on a range of variables like speed, temperature, and interior air conditioning. Even wheel rim-size can factor into the equation since the difference between 15-inch and 16-inch wheels can also affect the car’s overall electric range.
