smart's electric drive To Be Sold Alongside C453

Autoblog recently published an interview with Mark Webster that zeroed in on the fact that the gas-powered C453 will be released prior to its electric counterpart. The electric version of the new model will not hit the US market for at least another year, which means that the older electric drive fortwo will occupy the same lot as the C453 for quite some time. Even though the electric drive's look will temporarily remain the same, the model was only released this past May, making its presence on the market still fairly fresh. Despite the later premiere, the new electric drive model will feature a similar set of customization options as its predecessor. And smart electric drive sales are climbing, which means the demand for and excitement surrounding electric vehicles will sustain itself well into the future. In 2014 alone, smart succeeded its electric drive sales goals by 118 percent, selling a total of 2,200 cars nationwide! We love that so many people have decided to make the switch…See More

Have you gone through the process of winterizing your smart yet? If you haven't already, get on it! Winter is in full swing... Thankfully, our owner's manual (page 143) gives a handy rundown of everything you need to know to master the art of the smart. Here are a couple key tips:

Automatic Windshield Wipers Settings

Posted on December 10, 2014 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

Winter weather is upon us, and with it comes the chance to put your smart's automatic windshield wipers to work! We learned via Reddit that some of you were asking about the right way to adjust rain-light sensor-controlled wiper settings. For 2014 smarts that have a rain-light sensor, the feature is activated when the wiper settings are set to "intermittent wiping" or…


The Scoop - C453 Updates

Posted on November 19, 2014 at 11:00am 3 Comments

Greetings Insiders!

With the recent world premiere of the C453, we wanted to make sure that we took a moment to personally share some of the car's highlights and hopefully answer a few questions along the way. We are planning on premiering the C453 at the Detroit Auto Show this January however actual USA-based sales will not begin until late next year. Until then, let us walk you through what this much-anticipated smart will entail.

Missed the Paris Motor Show? No worries, sUSAi member jwight has your back. Not only did he get to see smart's 453 display, he also got to look under the hood and sit inside! Flipping through his photos is getting us even more excited for the US premiere of the 453 at the New York Auto Show. Check out these awesome snaps: …

Let me second Robert's comment.  Not sure what happened but smart USA appears to be totally disconnected from the smart owner community. Yes, there's Farcebook (pun intended) but that's pretty much generic comments without much substance.  Bring back the un-group in anticipation of the 2015 intro of the next generation smarts!

I have a comment about seeing the un-group revitalized here. Eric Angeloro did a fantastic job of organizing the un-group and without his input the group has struggled on Google Hangout. It has now become apparent that the group can no longer continue without the input from smartUSA. There is still a lot of passion and enthusiasm amongst smart owners and to have the involvement of smartUSA to communicate with a group of committed owners seems like a plus for promoting the brand. Hopefully, Eric or someone else in corporate will take up the challenge to bring the un-group back to life and instill a continued enthusiasm for the brand, amongst it's owners.

Funny, funny, Charlotte!  Before we got our little Munchkin, Ann and I lived on the Bolivar Peninsula, a ferry ride from Galveston, Texas, until we were moved away by hurricane Ike.  Cars going onto the ferry had a TSA-like inspection before boarding.  "Pop the hood, pop the trunk and pop the glove box."  We may drive all the way back down there just to have an experience like yours.  We are all primed to respond, "Sorry, we don't have the first two, but we can open the glove box for you."

On the other hand, the third member of the inspection team used a long-handled mirror to inspect the bottom of cars.  I guess it would not be so funny if we were instructed to remove Munchkin's under tray.  :)

Hello sUSAi:

Yes, I am interested in sharing my photos as well as my little story.  I can't tell you how much attention my SmartCar got.  It was especially funny when the security detail searching vehicles and their contents asked me to "Pop the trunk."  After the look on my face, they just laughed.  You certainly can fit a lot of stuff in this car!  How do I get to you my photos?  Charlotte Rios
