Daimler Confirms C453 electric

Daimler announced their intentions to offer an electric version of the C453, set to hit European markets in 2016. The confirmation came shortly after it was reported that the company had invested an additional 1.7 million dollars towards the purchase of lithium-ion batteries for their eco-friendly models. Would any of you smartsters consider going electric for the C453? http://smart.cr/16w5oCESee More

car2go Solves Brooklyn's Parking Problem

car2go launched in Brooklyn a few short months ago and the city is already reeling from the thrill of having a fleet of ready-to-roll cars right around the corner. Since its premiere, car2go Brooklyn members have driven over 55,000 miles! Commuters have been using the cars to close the transportation gap between subway lines during daily trips. Local business owners have also taken to using the cars for bigger deliveries that require one way transportation and minimal parking time. Even more common are the regular New Yorkers who occasionally need a car, but don't have the funds or desire to own one. Read more about how car2go is revolutionizing the way Brooklynites park: http://smart.cr/1zn5ffi Also, in case you have forgotten - all smart owners get complimentary car2go membership, in both Brooklyn and beyond!…See More

Automatic Windshield Wipers Settings

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 position "1" on your wiper switch. To deactivate the automatic wiper setting, you must switch your wiper position back to "0," otherwise known as the "Off" setting. When in the rain-light sensor mode, the frequency of the wiper trigger is determined by the speed of the vehicle and amount of moisture detected on the windshield. Another helpful wiper-related reminder: in the car wash, it's important to make sure your rain-light sensor is off. The wipers can be damaged cutting through high-powered water jets.See More

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.

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
