Why smart e-bikes

sophisticated exercise machine

We have always been smart loyalists since the first time we drove a smart fortwo in 2005. We have owned three (two diesel 450 coupes and one 451 cabriolet). Our company now owns two smart EDs. We park them end-to-end in a single car garage. We love the engineering and style, so getting excited about smart e-bikes was easy.

Stop By - Say Hi - Use Our Charger

A great way to meet other EV drivers

We recommend having a charger installed right at home if you can. We have a Sun Country charger on the outside of the garage. It's registered on the Sun Country website and also on PlugShare. Drivers in the area who need a charge for a bit more range can find us and give us a call to stop by. We've met some interesting people this way and charged a few different cars including this Tesla. It gives us an opportunity to see how other owners adapt to the EV lifestyle and check out other cars close up.
