I attached a story that FOX news did on the smart electric.But before I spend $45,000 on a car that is all electric and only a range of 82 miles I would buy a Chevy Volt and when the electric runs out the gas takes over but for now its my gas smart and I Love it.

I was invited to view the electric smart and it was a last minute idea to grab my still and video camera. I did not know at the time my video camera's battery was almost dead. What you see in the video is EVERYTHING I shot. Plus I never intended to make any kind of information video about the electric smart. What you are watching is only an exercise in creating a video with limited resources. I assumed folks might find it interesting, so I posted it. Thank you for watching.

I'm sorry to say your video about the "Electric Drive" Smart car gave ZERO information about the car, except for a few shots of one driving by. How about some information on the weight, as compared to our gas models, the price of the car, the charge time, 110 or 220 volt charging systems, battery life, battery replacement cost, miles between charging, center of gravity, when exactly, are they scheduled to be available for sale in the U.S.A.? Also, there will be many other electrics for sale in the U.S. very soon, both foreign and domestic, How will the Smart compare? I saw a full sized Toyota four door sedan hybrid that gets the same mileage as the "half the size" Smart car. For such a tiny car the mileage should be MUCH greater! I think the "Smart" car engineers have fallen asleep at the switch, and will lose the mileage battle, and consequently will lose sales in large numbers. If it was possible to get 60 or 70 MPG in Europe, with diesels, their most important job would have been to do whatever was necessary to modify those engines to work in THIS country. As tiny as the Smart car is, it should easily be the highest mileage car anywhere in the world. The Smart is cute, but cute may not be enough in the very competitive next few years. That's my view, and the view of several other Smart owners I've talked with. Regards, Evans Bletsas, Roseville, Michigan, U.S.A.

still I liked the guy's explanation on the diesel, i had heard most of it but he tied it all together better than anyone else.

Would have liked to see more of the ED, plus would have liked to hear what the Smart Alecs members thought about it after driving it.
