car2go Expands To China

car2go has announced plans to expand its service to Southwest China's Chongqing Municipality. The expansion marks the first Asian market ever to be broached by car2go. Car sharing will help to limit the number of cars on the road, easing traffic congestion and giving drivers a new option in light of recent vehicle purchase limits enacted by the government. What's more, fewer cars on the road means better air quality for all. We're excited for car2go to make its mark across the world! More

Happy Birthday Moscot! Here's Your smart

Luxury eye wear brand Moscot is celebrating its 100th birthday — not with cake or champagne, but their own custom smart car. The car will be revealed on February 28th in Milan and was done as a collaboration with smart's international headquarters. While the juicy details can't be shared until then, Moscot's fortwo will be a cabrio with a black exterior and yellow interior — colors that reflect the brand's signature look. Now, these are people who really know how to party! More

The Scoop - Further C453 Updates

Posted on January 27, 2015 at 6:00pm 0 Comments

Hello Insiders!

It's been a while since we've updated you on a few key product launches. The most anticipated one is undoubtedly the C453. Originally, we reported that the C453 would be making its US debut in January at the Detroit Auto Show. Since then, the premiere has shifted to the New York Auto Show in April. We're excited to bring the newest generation of our vehicle to New York coinciding with this week's retail launch of the 453 in Europe.…

Automatic Windshield Wipers Settings

Posted on December 10, 2014 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

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…


The Scoop - C453 Updates

Posted on November 19, 2014 at 11:00am 3 Comments

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
