The 2-seat EQ fortwo is available only with electric drive. The solid-roof coupe is available in pure, passion and prime trims, while the part-convertible cabrio model is only available in passion. Prices include the $750 factory destination fee. It still qualifies for up to $7,500 in federal tax credits.
The base pure ($23,800) trim comes standard with 15-in steel wheels, a rearview camera, cruise control, power locks and windows, automatic climate control, a flat-folding passenger seat, cloth upholstery, Bluetooth, a USB port, a CD player, an auxiliary audio jack and a 2-speaker sound system. Simulated leather upholstery is an option.
The passion ($26,140 coupe; $28,850 cabrio) adds alloy wheels, a height-adjustable driver's seat, heated power mirrors, upgraded interior trim and a cargo cover. These items are available on the pure as stand-alone options. The cabrio passion has a power-retractable soft-top roof. This trim level also opens the door to additional color options.
The prime ($27,490 ) adds a panoramic sunroof, automatic headlights and wipers, fog lamps, leather upholstery and heated front seats. These items are available as stand-alone options on the passion. Options for the prime include a JBL sound system and a Sport package (16-in wheels, a lowered suspension, a chrome exhaust tip and shift paddles for the obligatory auto-manual transmission).

2019 Fiat 500e -- It's been a while since it's undergone a redesign, but the 500e offers city-friendly proportions, more interior space than the smart and a quirky retro character. It can also go considerably further on a charge. Its main drawback is that it's only available in California and Oregon.
2019 Hyundai Ioniq Electric -- Yes, the Ioniq has a higher base price, but it's not that much higher and you get way more car for the money. It's also surprisingly spacious and fun to drive. One of the better electric choices.
Used Chevrolet Spark -- Want an inexpensive electric car? Consider a used or certified pre-owned (CPO) Chevrolet Spark. It's considerably more spacious than the smart and goes 30 extra miles on a charge. Oh, and since we're talking used Sparks, expect pricing to be about $10,000 less than a smart fortwo electric.
