Charging guide

Home and Destination Charging (0 → 100%)

Did you know that you have two options to charge your Smart EQ fortwo coupe? You can either use a standard wall socket or a charging station. However, on the road, you can only charge from a public point using a charging station since a wall socket won't suffice. The rate at which your electric vehicle charges depends on the charging station or electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) you use, as well as your EV's maximum charging capacity. Refer to the table below which presents all the available charging alternatives for your Smart EQ fortwo coupe, along with the expected time required to completely charge the battery from zero.


Electric vehicle (EV) charging varies across Europe, with each country utilizing different connections to the grid. While some European countries predominantly rely on 1-phase connections, others use 3-phase connections more frequently. The table below illustrates all the possible ways to charge a Smart EQ fortwo coupe. However, not all charging modes may be available in every country. We recommend that you check with your local electric vehicle charging networks to determine which charging options are accessible to you.

Fast Charging (10 → 80%)

Efficient charging is crucial to extend the range of your drive by adding the ideal amount of charge in the least possible time. As soon as the battery reaches an 80% state-of-charge, the charging power will noticeably decrease. Consequently, a regular fast charge seldom exceeds an 80% SoC. The pace of charging an electric vehicle is determined by the charging station employed, as well as the maximum charging power the EV can support. The table presented below offers a comprehensive summary of quick charging for the Smart EQ fortwo coupe.

  • Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
  • Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
