Is Smart Fortwo a Mercedes?
The Smart Fortwo (stylized as “smart fortwo”) is a rear-engine, rear-wheel-drive, 2-passenger city car manufactured and marketed by the Smart division of the German multinational Mercedes-Benz Group. Introduced in 1998, it is now in its third generation.
Why was the Smart Fortwo discontinued?
A spokesperson for Mercedes-Benz said in a statement that the high cost of homologating the Fortwo for the U.S., combined with slow sales, led to the decision.
How fast can a Smart Fortwo go?
A Smart Car ForTwo can reach a top speed of 96 miles per hour. That’s the top speed of the traditional gas-powered Smart Car. The top speed of the all-electric Smart Car dips to 78 miles per hour—still more than adequate for city driving.
