electric drive Wish List

There has been a lot of buzz recently on forums about fast-charge options for our electric drive. We are well aware of those DC beauties with the advanced J1772 combo plugs that give you an 80% boost in 30 minutes. But as we've seen, charger capability isn't just a manufacturer's issue. Public policy and station roll out are also involved. And though we're eager to speed up the charging process, we realize that it might take some extra time. That's why we're hoping you'll weigh in and tell us what else you want to see in the next electric drive.A forum thread created by…See More

"Thanks!!  Really very interesting conversion.  In Florida, it would be registered as a motorcycle because it has less than four wheels."

"I would love to have some infor on the white cabby in the left lane about half way over the bridge.  It appears to have a front engine with a single front wheel.  Was it converted into a trike?"

Bash On The Bridge Rewind

Jimmy Redmond and the Sin City smarts are at it again! This time, the group assembled 73 smart cars from Arizona, California and Nevada to take on Lake Havasu's London Bridge. The cars were parked on the bridge for 15 minutes and caused quite a stir with locals who happened upon the sight. Even better, one of the attendees, Jerry Crocker, was kind enough to share footage he took of the event with his drone. That's right - we've got a bird's eye view of the smarts parading across the bridge! ...How majestic. We cried a small tear when we saw it and think you will too. Did any of you attend the event?See More

Behind The Scenes of Yo!

Ever wondered what it's like to set up a one-day-only, guerrilla-style test drive? Lucky for you, we managed to snap a couple of pictures while prepping our Yo campaign in San Francisco. From outfitting each smart with special Go Pro cameras to assembling pop up stops in Mission and SoMa, it was a crazy day! But totally worth it. We'll do whatever it takes to get more and more people to experience the electric drive firsthand. Seriously — there's nothing like the feeling you get zipping around in a smart. You have to live it to love it.…See 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
