About Smart

Smart Automobile produces city cars that you won’t have troubles parking anywhere. Smart Automobile is part of Daimler AG and has headquarters in Boblingen, Germany. Its cars are marketed around the globe, particularly in Europe, Asia, North and South America.

Its cars are available in electric and sport models. Smart means Swatch Mercedes Art, which came from the names of the two companies that founded the brand.

History

Smart Automobile was conceived by Swatch chief executive Nicolas Hayek, who wanted a car that not only carried his company’s name but also its personalization features. The Swiss company contacted German automobile maker Volkswagen for the project.

In 1994, a plant was built in Hambach, France for the new car production. But before the new car model was rolled out, Swatch and Mercedes disagreed on matters like design and performance of the car. So Swatch pulled out of the partnership and Mercedes went on to complete the project.

In 1998, the first Smart car called City Coupe was launched in nine European countries. It was well-received at first. Mercedes then launched two more models five years later, the Roadster and Roadster Coupe. Then it came out with a bigger version of the City Coupe the next year.

Models

There are currently five Smart models out on the market.

The Smart fortwo is what remains of the original City Coupe. The latest reincarnation features a front and back that looks more like a Mercedes-designed with its bulky shape and rhombic lamps. It has a 0.9 liter, three-cylinder engine.

The Smart forfour is a small car with a three cylinder, .9 turbocharged engine. It measures just 137.4 inches long, 65.4 inches wide, and 61 inches tall.

The Smart fortwo Brabus is a much smaller vehicle with a length of 106.1 inches, width of 61.4 inches, and height of 61.2 inches. It can accelerate up to 154 kilometers per hour.

The Smart fortwo Cambrio is powered by a three cylinder engine with 999 cm3 displacement. Lastly, the Smart electric drive is the battery electric vehicle version of the fortwo micro car.

Innovations

Smart cars are not only known for being fuel efficient but also for being fully customizable. In 2013, it allowed fashion designer Jeremy Scott to put a red fiberglass wing on the back side panels. This was not only to make the car look more unique, but also to serve as brake lights.
