Pro-Net, a subsidiary of Proton, has officially launched the smart #1 which comes in three different variants; the Pro, Premium and the top-of-the-line Brabus. Now, smart Malaysia has been teasing us with previews and test drives without revealing the price since July and finally, the wait ends.
The Pro variant is priced at RM189,000, the Premium at RM219,000 and the Brabus at RM249,000! Well, it is at the price range that we anticipated it to be due to how interactive and powerful this car is. Not to mention the safety features that come with it.
The Pro variant, with a smaller 49kWh LFP battery, provides a WLTP-rated range of 315km on a single charge. In contrast, the Premium variant is equipped with a larger 66kWh battery, offering a WLTP-rated range of 440km. Both variants utilize the same 268hp, 343Nm electric motor, taking 6.7 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100km/h, and are configured with a rear-wheel-drive (RWD) setup.
Inside, the Pro variant exhibits a few feature reductions, such as leatherette seats and the absence of ventilated seats for the front occupants. Moreover, the 10-inch head-up display is replaced by a more basic 5-speaker audio system instead of the 13-speaker Beats Audio System.
The third variant, the Brabus variant, offers all the features present in the other variants and an additional option which is the ability to switch from RWD to all-wheel-drive (AWD). This variant prioritises high performance, boasting a rapid 0-100km/h acceleration time of 3.9 seconds. It features a Dual-motor All-Wheel-Drive powertrain with 422hp and 543Nm of torque, providing excellent handling and traction, and a practical WLTP range of 400km.
