Smart has announced pricing for the 2017 Fortwo Electric Drive Coupe and Cabrio. The Coupe will set you back $24,550 and the Cabrio is slightly higher at $28,750. Prices include destination and delivery charges. Compared to the outgoing Electric Drive, the new model is $1,200 less.

A full charge is said to take about three hours when plugged into a 240V charger.
