CO2 emission is a very serious problem in our days. This is why the car makers are making the impossible to make their cars less danger for the environment. But how about a zero emission town and city car? The idea comes from Smart with the unveiling of their fortwo electric drive (ed), a model powered not buy an engine, but by a 41 bhp magnetic motor.
Smart find a solution of traveling 15.000 kilometers with only 15 refuels. This is possible with the new ForTwo CDi unveiled today. It has a fuel consumption of just 3.3 liters per 100 kilometers (NEDC) and emissions of 88 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer; this is why the new ForTwo CDi is the most economical production car worldwide. If you want to travel from central Berlin to Paris without refueling, the new ForTwo is the answer. A full tank of fuel costs around 38.00 euro and 33 liters of fuel will take the 45 bhp two-door car approximately 1,000 kilometers.
