What should I be paying?

Not so much should, as will. Smart is moving to a haggle-free list price system with its dealers, selling direct to customers, so £35,950 is what you will pay for the base Pro+ version. In common with all #1s that comes with a five star  Euro NCAP rating, a three-year unlimited mileage warranty and an eight-year/125,000 mile battery warranty.

An extra £3,000 gets you into the Premium, and whether you should do that or not depends on how much you value matrix LED lights and the uprated Beats sound system. Those are the only two options you’ll really want. The Brabus is good value for the performance it offers, but it’s another £4,500 you could save. Smart will also have its own lease deals, starting at around £450 per month.

Smart wants its buying experience to be modern and it thought about going fully online, so you will be able to buy a #1 from your sofa in as little as 15 minutes. If you do want to dip into the physical retailer model and test drive a car though, you will still be able to at any point during the online buying process. Mercedes will still handle all aftersales for Smart in Europe.
