Merc wants the electric smart to perform badly, to have a short range and little power, so that it dosent eat up other products in the lineup. It is probably possible to make a 20k electric smart that outperforms most other cars on the road in everything except range and top speed. Competition is going to force them to produce a comfortable, usable, extended range EV for that price, and I will just have to wait.
