"Apples and oranges, guys.  The smart is a true EV, the Volt is a hybrid (even though Chevy won't admit it.)  If it has to stop at a gas station it's not an EV.  Compared to EVs other than the $100K Tesla, the 451 smart…"

" This is hilarious bad messaging given the gas tank problems the new Smart is having. Yes I am tired of gas refills. I have to make them every 5 gallons instead of the 8.7 claimed by Smart."

" Hmmm, my top has had the same cracking/checking. Better yet, it is now flaking off. 2008 Passion. I figured it was out of warranty and I was out of luck! Smart/MB will replace the POS plastic roof? "

One of our favorite bloggers, ElectraGirl, is back with more insights on her smart electric drive. This time, she has created a list of 5 little-known facts about the vehicle. Some of her facts are more general characteristics that could be applicable to all of our models. However, these three points do a great job of illustrating features strictly associated with our electric drive:

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
