I stand corrected. Like a suedo Passion comfort package.

In that case, I'll have to give it a serious look then.

They just had a story on it on CBS4 Denver, 6p newscast.

We've received a good deal of them so far. Should be up to 250 sometime Tuesday.
They are pures, but the car2go package is unique. Power windows, leather seats, their own headunit which includes navigation. But no heated seats oddly enough.

Clint, they will have over 200 car2go smarts in Denver. Could well be one of the first shipments. There short term rentals (35c per minute), so I think the fact that they are Pures will matter too much.

@Ed: Could it be that new delivery of Car2Go smarts today?

Looked to be roughly a dozen. At least MB thought enough to let them ride in the covered carrier

I don't think I'd like the Car2Go's as they all looked to be Pure models. Smart didn't exactly put the window cranks in a comfortable place.

New event for COSMOS!
Sorry for the short notice, but a new smart owner, Tia and I will be at Dave and Busters Westminster tomorrow, at 1:00 PM.  Everyone is invited to join, including you, Eddie!

@toes, exactly the point.  If someone flies into Denver and needs a car for the entire smart car convention, including the scheduled driving events, I don't think car2go will work.  I'm all for the program and am glad to see it expand to more cities but considering the location of the national event and the scheduled drives, it would get costly to have a car2go car for the 5 days.

Car2go will have a presence, and will have cars available at the convention!  smart Center Westminster is expecting to have cars start arriving in the next two weeks.  I'm working with Car2Go to see if we can get some special rates during the convention.  Toes is correct on the concept of Car2Go, and yes, they are the rentals I have been referring to.  To my knowledge, Hertz doesn't rent smart Cars...

@ jwight . Car2Go is meant for short distance urban (one way) trips and perfect for that. As a standard rental car you will certainly be able to get better deals, but they won't be smarts (and I believe you do not pay for gas for the car2go concept - they do charge you an additional 45 cents per mile over 150 miles however). I also don't know whether they will even be "on-line" in Denver for the Nationals. I think Russ is just saying that they will show presence at the event(s).
