I am negotiating to buy a demo smart for four 2,950 miles.

I am completely new to ev.

I could tell roughly the condition of a used petrol car by jacking it up for inspection.

BUT with evs what should I look for in, batteries, el.motors etc.

Can you advise me on how people go about when buying a used ev & what questions to ask?

Would the ev Smart for four do a round trip of 90 miles without recharging?, are there trick to do to strech consumption? ..........thanx ................nick

It's range from WLTP is 81 miles, so doing 90 miles on one charge would be tricky. Have a look here, it'll give you an idea of real world range for different driving conditions:

90 miles without recharging I would say a flat no. -maybe- in the summer with no passengers or cargo on a hot but not roasting day, with no wind and all done at below 60mph, but in the real world? No.
