smart Malaysia has officially started accepting bookings for the smart #1 in conjunction with the signing of an enhanced Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) between smart and Proton that took place in Nanning, China, yesterday. Prospective owners may now reserve the smart #1 with a refundable booking fee of RM1,000 through the smart Hello app.
smart Malaysia mentioned that it will begin delivering the vehicle to customers in Q4 this year, with nine dealerships gearing up to welcome them. The company also announced its #1 Early Bird benefit program, which will reward customers who grab this opportunity to be among the first owners of the smart #1.
By taking advantage of this offer, they not only secure a place to be among the first recipients of the exciting new EV, but for the first 501 pre-order customers, they will also unlock exclusive #1 Early-Bird perks comprised of RM1,001 in charging credits directly via the Hello smart App.
These charging credits, to be credited to their account upon delivery of their smart #1, empower the owners to enjoy a seamless charging experience through the app and its ground breaking feature integrating more than 70% of public charging locations available.
The smart #1 will be available in Pro, Premium, and Brabus versions that have been specifically tailored for the Malaysian market. While the Pro and Premium variants boast a chic design and offer an exhilarating driving experience as intelligent electric vehicles, the smart #1 Brabus model is a high-performance EV featuring a striking exterior design and a bright, elevated interior.
