the scoop

Hello Insiders!

It's been a while since we've updated you on a few key product launches. The most anticipated one is undoubtedly the C453. Originally, we reported that the C453 would be making its US debut in January at the Detroit Auto Show. Since then, the premiere has shifted to the New York Auto Show in April. We're excited to bring the newest generation of our vehicle to New York, coinciding with this week's retail launch of the 453 in Europe.

For those of you who will be attending the Detroit Auto Show, smart will still be in attendance with an all-electric fleet. Make sure you stop on by our booth to say hello and take our interactive quiz to find out if you are electricurious.

2015 is just a few short weeks away. With the new year comes fresh opportunities to innovate and redefine what it means to be a part of the smart community. We can't wait to see where the road takes us next!
