Smart ED could be first battery lease in US; electric bike under discussion, too


Smart made a splash fall with the announcement the base price of the all-electric Electric Drive would be making it the cheapest EV in the US. After a lot of attention with that Smart has been communicating potential customers to make that the launch this (no date has yet been set) be exactly what people Smart USA General Manager Matura is certainly planning for

Matura recently told that initial response to the announcement was all very positive . 2,500 people have so far, with around 40 making a reservation with local dealer and 60 percent asking for more information. heard anecdotally that are very pleased that will be a cabriolet version as she said.

The trick, of course, is out how best to sell and lease a car the Fortwo ED. While no lease has yet been announced, Matura did say USA might soon be the only in the US to offer an electric vehicle a battery lease program. option is available for Fortwo EDs EVs like the Renault Twizy ) in We haven’t ruled it out, she

I don’t know that it has to be the way they do it in Europe, but there be some reason to bring similar to customers here. part of the reason I’m some of those questions of the who are interested. I want to understand why buying the vehicle, why they’re the vehicle.

You can’t do that by at what the Prius did or what did, because the Smart is different.

Mercedes-Benz has never had an introducing a new concept. Smart doesn’t.

Mercedes-Benz has never had an introducing a new concept. Smart doesn’t, she added. Still, leasing isn’t just a of figuring out the right price. full of legal challenges.

In Europe, every country different, but if you’re in the European they all kind of operate the Matura said. Not so in the United So there are just a lot of little to look at.

What I never to do is launch something that has intentions but because of some that are outside of our control it not be how we envisioned it and might not be a positive for our

When you talk to Americans, they think that is boring. It doesn’t have to be.

As we in our First Drive, the Smart ED makes the two-seater the car it should have been. Matura to a point. The car you see out there [indicating the concept ] is an electric car, and you know it unless we tell you inside.

To be green, or whatever your is for driving new technologies, doesn’t to be boring. When you talk to sometimes they think What Smart brings to the is that it can be anything you want it to be, like the gasoline version.

In the US, the Fortwo will be available the bespoke Tailor Made by program. Smart USA can also your new Fortwo for more Matura said even you get to Tailor Made, there are combinations of colors in the standard so that whole anything you line isn’t just

Well, unless, of course, you four seats. While the brand did sell a ForFour in between 2004 and 2006, it did so in the US. An updated version is coming to the but Matura wouldn’t say if it’s on the for the US. As far as the four-seater, I know it’s in for the US, but I don’t have an answer on yet, she said. I would to see it, but the interesting thing is we’ve had so success here this [2012] without it, that not necessary.

Smart sold 10,009 in the US last year, up from in 2011.

We do know that an Fortwo will be available in I’ve gotten a glimpse of it, said, Not to say it won’t change, but it true to its Smart roots some very clever and updates. It will look but the passion is still there.

I people would scratch head if electric drive here.

Ahh, passion. not just a trim line for the line. It’s something wanted to tap into when took the brand back in the US in 2011. When we took we saw such passion in the customers we had that we knew there had to be of that out there.

So, building awareness of the Smart itself was the first step, and we did successfully. I think the electric is the next step in the evolution of I think it will be very for Smart in the United States, but I more so because now we have awareness built up and people ‘That makes sense.

I what Smart is and it’s a that they have new technology.’ I think people scratch their head if it here.

We’re playing to see if the electric bike makes for the United States. They’re about the electric scooter, and if you at how cities are evolving these Smart will just to grow and it’s going to in that electric role. I it’s the perfect brand to do it.

The brand, maybe, but Matura was that she doesn’t think one can promote electric vehicles on its even if it does have a few color choices. I think the industry and the government has to do a better job of why driving an electric car might be the thing, whether you consider to be green or not, she said. I there’s this attitude only early adopters or who believe we should never another plastic container in our are the only ones interested in and I don’t think that’s
