Road Trippin' With Range

Another electric drive owner has put their range to the road trip test. Blogger ElectraGirl had a free weekend to leisurely explore, so she decided to see how far a single charge could take her. And her smart literally went beyond her expectations, traversing mountains, rivers and state lines before capping out at 110 miles. Read more about her adventure here: http://smart.cr/1GFCHjUSee More

C453 Dealer Ordering Guide Preview - Safety

Posted on May 29, 2015 at 11:00am 0 Comments

smart has never skimped on safety standards and our C453 is no exception. In this final installment of our dealer ordering guide walk-through, we'll take a look at what makes the C453 one of the safest smarts to date.

Of course, we have to start with our tridion safety cell. Thanks to a higher proportion of ultra-high strength, hot-formed steels and maximum-strength, multiphase steel, our tridion is the strongest its ever been. As a compliment to the C453's external ridgity, doors are…

It's time to revisit the C453's dealer ordering guide to see our latest smart's interior specs. Jump inside and we'll take you for a tour.



Storage was top of mind when we designed our twin-section tailgate. The trunk opens from both the top and bottom to facilitate easy loading and unloading. Furthermore, the backrest of the passenger seat can now be folded…

C453's Dealer Ordering Guide Preview - Dimensions

Posted on May 27, 2015 at 12:12pm 0 Comments

On Tuesday, we talked about our C453's optional packages. Today, let's turn to the car's new look and feel. There are a couple of dimensions that have remained the same, despite body alterations. The C453 is 8'8" long, just like its predecessor. That means you can expect parking to be just as easy. At 22'8", our turning circle is the best in the industry. In terms of body changes, the C453's width has been modified slightly (+4 inches) in order to maximize interior space and enhance…

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!

At 12:11pm on January 7, 2014, Robert Ricewasser said…

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
