While I look forward to seeing their results from the two AZ cars, we've had a number of them on Texas roads for a bit over a year now and there's been no noticeable range loss so far. So far, so good!
The 2015 Smart ED is unchanged from 2014.
See this post for an example of MB battery test results on customer car showing 2.6% potential loss of range in one year.

Personally, my Smart ED is perfect, not a hint of any issues in 1.5 years, and there's no way to know if I've lost range, as I always recharge to 100% nightly, and have never run out no noticed any reduction that can't be explained by weather or my heavy right foot.
