Pitching the new Smart ForTwo as the ‘perfect’ car for a concerned parent’s teenager, David Schembri, president of SmartCar USA, noted that since there is no rear seat in the new compact 2-seater, there will be no hanky-panky going on in your kid’s car.
Speaking at the Automotive News World Congress, Schembri said, “After all, what better car to have for your teenager than one without a backseat.”
But don’t get the wrong idea, Schembri wasn’t talking about what usually goes down in the back of your teenager’s car. Schembri was referring to the problem of young drivers getting distracted by those bored and wild kids sitting in the back.
The Smart ForTwo officially went on sale in the U.S. on January 18th. The U.S. distributor for the car said that they have already received 30,000 orders for the small car.
