With the smart forstars, smart is continuing its series of concept vehicles and also offering a glimpse of the brand’s future design idiom.
smart’s presentation in Paris is focussing on the world premiere of the electrically driven two-seater that features an integrated video projector. Further new products that smart is presenting at the Mondial de l’Automobile are the special model smart fortwo edition iceshine and the dynamic smart BRABUS electric drive.
With the concept vehicle smart forstars the urban global brand hopes to be hitting the nerve of a target group that is at home in the cities of the world. The electrically driven smart forstars is an SUC (Sports Utility Coupé) with room for two people and plenty of stowage space.
Its name is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the glass dome above the passengers that gives a clear view of the starry sky. At the same time it hints at the idea of integrating a video projector in the front bonnet.
The latest smart fortwo special model is the “edition iceshine”, a vehicle combining “a fresh and sassy look” with chic equipment details. The vehicles in this limited series are available in exclusive azure blue or in white and will be rolled out to dealers in October 2012. The smart fortwo edition iceshine is available as a coupé or a cabrio, with a 52 kW mhd petrol engine or a 62 kW petrol engine.
The smart BRABUS electric drive proves that cutting-edge urban mobility can be combined with lively agility and a sporty look. The electric motor is based on the state-of-the-art drive technology of the new smart fortwo electric drive and has an output of 60 kW. It delivers maximum torque of 135 Nm, which means that the smart BRABUS electric drive almost always wins when pulling away at traffic lights. It has a top speed of 135 km/h.
