Downloadable Hello smart app offers helpful info and bookings for smart #1 EVs in Malaysia

Revealed earlier this year, the smart #1 EV will be available for bookings in Malaysia using the new Hello smart app that’s available for free download on the Google PlayStore, Apple App Store and Huawei AppGallery.

For the uninitiated, the smart #1 is a compact electric SUV that hosts a rear-mounted electric motor powered by a lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide (NMC) battery with a 66 kWh capacity that can  take the EV up to 440 km on a single charge while offering up to 272 PS and 343 Nm of torque. If you put the pedal to the metal, the EV can go up to 180 km/h and can go from 0-100km/h in 6.7 seconds.

A higher end Brabus variant adds an additional electric motor to create an all-wheel drive configuration with a total output of 428PS and 543 Nm of torque as well as a nippier 0-100km/h sprint in 3.9 seconds though maximum range goes down to 400 km. 

What is the Hello smart app

The new Hello smart app is identical across all three app stores and acts as both an information nexus for the Smart #1 for Malaysian users and to preorder the compact electric SUV ahead of its slated arrival later this year in Q4 2023.
