“Smart is reaching for the stars,” that’s what the brand says in its recent statement for a new concept vehicle that will make its debut at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.
Known as the Smart ForStars, the concept hints at an electrically driven SUC – or Sports Utility Coupe. That’s right, this is a sports utility with room for two people and plenty of storage for the ‘active lifestyle’.
“The smart is Europe’s most inexpensive series-produced electric car,” said smart boss Dr Annette Winkler. “Not only is it emission-free and fast, it is also possible to conveniently set the perfect interior temperature in advance with a smartphone, and it is simple to charge at a domestic socket. What’s more, with its powerful battery and integrated projector the smart forstars can transform any grey backyard into an animated open-air cinema.”
Power for the Smart ForStars is based on the same concept of the Smart ForTwo Brabus electric drive. Output of the magneto-electric motor has been increased to 60 kW (80-hp). Top speed comes in at 80 mph.
