2011 Smart Forspeed Concept for Geneva Auto Show

Sunday, February 20th 2011. Smart


Smart Forspeed concept refers to the speed in kilometers rather than miles per hour. Forspeed is proud to inform that could reach the equivalent of 37 mph in 5.5 seconds. The performance of this car is powered by electricity were 41 hp motor and while the company did not provide a 0 to seek 60 mph. With only two-seater will accelerate to 75 mph.  This is not impressive by any standard, and we re more than a little surprised that the Smart chose this name “Forspeed” concept, which easily qualifies as the most absurd iteration of the Smart Forwhatever nomenclature, so far.

Here, the final ED in the name, written as ForspeED on the concept itself, is intended to reference the Smart ForTwo Electric Drive; powertrain is similar to the concept, but the ForTwo ED expected second slower to 37-mph mark-difference may be due to additional burden the production car roof. (The press release does not fill us in what is left Forspe part of the name refers.) In defense  Smart Forspeed it, will be felt strongly on the step-off-for-thanks to a few nanoseconds for immediately available torque from the electric motor.

Outside, Smart Forspeed provide fresh interpretations Smart styling language. The body is soft and round, giving an indication of future direction of smart design. Head and rear lights mirror each other, with two large LED ring and rounded, the middle part does not turn white.

There is a teardrop motif to them, which reminds us of the latest generation of Kia Picanto but is actually supposed to evoke raindrops on the windshield of the aircraft.

Smart Forspeed windshield is styled to look like it was in a vintage propeller plane, and gray stripes evoke the characteristic Smart Tridion safety cell forming roll bars behind the seats. A very similar motif is also used on other cars electric concept, Esoro Swiss-engineered from the 1992 E301. Probably just a coincidence.

Electric cars without expanding the reach-generator, of course, will be very limited in urban areas, even though-or rather, because-the fact that 80 percent of the cost only takes 45 minutes, as the press release claims. It s a little more time than rechargeable 80-percent of the gas tank in need. Range Forspeed is claimed to be about 85 miles on a charge 100-percent.

Some solar cells produce electricity as well external help, but only enough to power accessories or call charges.

There is no roof on Smart Forspeed . so that when rain threatens, the interior should be covered with a tonneau cover. To driving alone in bad weather, the passenger side can be closed by itself. There is also no external door handles, you should take the interior door handle to open the car (and prepare to be suspicious and perhaps a question by the authorities).

The interior design was painted white and green with brown skin element, it was clear in 1960 Italy. Two large pods house the speedometer on the left and the iPhone on the right. And the green rack spreads wide dashboard looks were inspired by the 1980 Fiat Panda.

Smart tells us immediately that Forspeed would remain a solitary prototype. We will look at the first and last was at the Geneva auto show next March.
