Who needs petrol stations when you have one of these? A full charge will
give you up to an 85 mile range for as little as 50 pence, here in the UK.
Charging is simple and can be done from a normal domestic mains socket. It
has a top speed of almost 70mph and, as with a standard Smart Car, it
exceeds crash test requirements. It's a baby Merc after all
This car is under trial at the moment, but when the production cars become
available soon, that 85 mile range is expected to be increased even

2015 Smart ForTwo action & beauty showcased
The revolution enters the next round -- the smart fortwo has undergone
improvements in virtually all areas and is markedly more comfortable. The
hallmark smart rear engine concept is being offered for the first time in
the four-seater smart forfour as well. Drive power is supplied by
state-of-the-art three-cylinder engines rated at 45 kW/60 hp, 52 kW/71 hp
and 66 kW/90 hp, while power transmission is performed by a five-speed
manual transmission or the twinamic automatic dual clutch transmission. A
host of innovative details guarantee even more fun in the city. The new
smart generation will be launched onto the market in Europe in November.
The price for the smart fortwo with 52 kW engine will be under 11,000
euros, while the smart forfour will cost only around 600 euros more with
the same engine.
"As Europe's youngest car brand, smart enjoys global success today. No-one
combines functionality and emotion as well as we do, as the inventors of
individual urban mobility. The new smart fortwo and forfour adopt the
proven concept while offering more of just about everything -- more space,
more colour, more equipment ... and even more fun in the city! Only the
vehicle length remains as unique as ever, at 2.69 metres," says smart boss
Annette Winkler. "Our idea based on a total rethink of urban mobility has
"In the planning phase we were clear that we wanted to retain the rear
engine for the new smart, so as to continue to exploit the vehicles'
strengths to the full in the city," explains Jörg Prigl, head of the
product group Compact Cars at Mercedes-Benz. "On this basis, we then
developed the new fortwo and forfour together with our partner, Renault."
"Despite increased safety requirements, we have managed to retain the smart
fortwo's unique length of just 2.69 metres," adds Markus Riedel, head of
development at smart. "It shares its architecture with the new forfour. We
have tailored both of the vehicles to the needs of modern-day city traffic.
My team is particularly proud of the turning circle, which sets a brand new
benchmark at just 6.95 metres for the fortwo."
The brand appeals equally to both the heart and the mind. An expressive
design idiom and colouring embody pure joie de vivre. The compact
proportions and clever details attest to unique functionality. The new
smart fortwo and the new smart forfour are clearly recognisable as members
of the same family. Many design features such as the headlamps, the cooling
air grille in the front and the iconic tridion safety cell are identical,
for example. And both vehicles are fitted with rear engines, making them
particularly agile in urban traffic.
"smart stands for FUN.ctional design, as the brand is defined by two poles
-- the heart and mind. The design idiom is clear, purist and trendy, and
the hallmark smart attributes are being adopted into a new era. These
attributes include the characteristic silhouette with the ultra-short
overhangs, the clear lines and forms, the tridion cell and the updated
smart face," notes Gorden Wagener, Head of Design at Daimler AG.
