Inside an e-mini car
This graphic shows the internal components that make up the Smart ForTwo Electric Drive. It's the same car as the gasoline version but uses an electric powertrain. An electric motor replaces the gasoline engine and a 16.5 kilowatt-hour battery system, made by Tesla Motors, is in the mid-section of the car. The electric version, at about 1,100 pounds, is about 300 pounds heavier than the gasoline one.
