Raven Symone Downsizes To A smart

We've seen a ton of celebrity smart owners in our day, but this one might take the cake. Raven Symone, who is best known for her role on "The Cosby Show" and "That's So Raven," recently stated that she had downsized her ample luxury car collection to all but two vehicles: "[I've] sold everything, except the Porsche 911 [and] a smart car. [The smart car] is the best purchase I ever bought. Gas? $20 a week compared to $95 for the Porsche truck." Thanks for showing people how to keep it simple in Hollywood, Symone! http://smart.cr/1nsTd0uSee More

The Scoop: smart’s Logo is Changing

Posted on September 8, 2014 at 2:26pm 0 Comments

Hi smartsters,

As you are already seeing here on sUSAi and across all of our digital platforms, smart’s logo is changing. This is an exciting time for our brand!

The change began on July 1, 2014, and a larger brand campaign will be launched for Europe today. The smart logo or “label” as it’s known, has been updated to be more modern as well as accompany the launch of the all-new smart fortwo (C453). More to follow on the C453 this month as we are all anxious to learn about and…

We are thrilled that so many people have made the switch to electric. With the increasing popularity of electric vehicles comes fresh opportunities to innovate and redefine the rules of the road.

One etiquette inquiry that has popped up on a lot on forums is "charge rage." A member of smart car of America recently wrote, "This week, for the first time, I unplugged…

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
