LiFePO4 battery – 48V – 180 Ah – 8,6 kWh – Riker s.r.l.
Many models of Smart have already been converted to electric traction by using the kit developed by Riker, which makes this small car a very economical and eco-friendly vehicle, perfectly suited for urban usage.
Initially the conversion kit used traditional lead batteries, which gave the car a 40 km maximum range.
Currently in the same room reserved for the battery they install the energy pack provided by Kaitek, which is composed of thirty 90 Ah lithium cells equipped with BBS. This gives the car a 100 km extended range and reduces the power consumption thanks to the saved weight.
