Here's a crazy fact, based on a 2013 survey by Consumers Union and UCS: according to stats related to charger installation capabilities, family size and driving habits, 42% of U.S. households could use an electric drive vehicle! And if everyone who could use an EV had one, we could potentially save 350 million barrels of oil per year. Yup, that's right.So charge on you EV pioneers and let's spread the electric drive gospel.

tridion safety cell Saves Georgia smart Owner

smart's tridion safety cell strikes again! Georgia newspapers are singing the praises of "a Nascar roll cage" (read: our safety cell) that saved a resident's life when his smart was flipped. “Without the strength of that framing, the car flipping would have collapsed in on itself and killed that gentleman," said the local police. "It's that framing that saved his life.” More

Posted on July 10, 2014 at 2:33pm 1 Comment

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…

The Scoop: smart cities project

Posted on May 2, 2014 at 10:00am 5 Comments

Hi smartsters,

I’m Julia Knittel, and over the past year I have been working on a new project called “smart cities,” which tests out some new things for smart in various cities around the world.

First of all, what is the smart cities project? The Head of smart global, Dr. Annette Winkler, was inspired when she noticed that certain cities around the world (think of Paris and Rome, for example) had overwhelmingly adopted smart into their culture, to the extent that she often saw…

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
