Smart Forstars: view at the Paris Motor Show concept electric

Already many new and interesting to the 2012 edition of the International Motor Show in Paris can be summed the presence of a new concept: the Smart Forstars. This two-seater coupé was presented recently at the event in Paris and has generated considerable interest among the world press for an unusual line of the sloping roof.

It will be powered by the same engine as the Brabus Smart electric drive: a 60 kW electric motor located in the rear and with its mix of city cars, SUVs, and this new coupe concept car anticipates the forms of future generations to ForTwo and ForFour that are being development in collaboration with Renault and whose arrival is expected between 2013 and 2014.

The Smart Forstars takes its name from the original two characteristics: first, from the panoramic roof that allows you to look at the starry sky and the stars of the film, as this concept is equipped with a video projector placed under the front bonnet that allows just show movies.

Now let s look in more detail this unusual and futuristic concept of Smart.

futuristic lines

The Smart Concept Forstars you immediately recognize the special body color called Alubeam Rouge which creates a nice contrast with the Tridion safety cell which is colored matt titanium (specifically of Matt Titanium Metallic ).

Catches your eye then also the design of the headlights and rear diamond shaped entirely by LED technology and are equipped with external frames just lit with LEDs. According to the designers, the shape of the LED bulbs included in the headlights and lights should remember the drops on the glass of a cabin of an airplane taking off: more or less we have.

The futuristic and aggressive lines of the front, characterized by an unusual grille with small holes and a video projector located in the air intake in the hood, blend well with the sides fluid design and dominated by massive three-spoke wheels for 21 inch diameter, mounted on wheels 245/35 Michelin. The aesthetic impact they offer is truly remarkable!

In the rear view we find an elusive tail with broad shoulders and a spoiler on top of the rear window that give sportiness to the clean lines but decided to create a sloping tailgate and a curved bumper.

The new Smart Forstars Concept features a nice and pleasant look that will be taken up by all the new creations Smart. We can then forget the current course of the ForTwo style and get used to this, which combines sporty traits from coupe to those of an SUV but with the dimensions of a city car (the dimensions are in fact of 3,550 mm in length and width to 1,170 of 1505 high).

The manufacturer of the Group Dailmer defines the acronym SUC, which stands for Sports Utility Coupe, has a setting to high car. Thanks to the step of almost two and a half meters (more precisely 2.470 mm), the wide track (1,475 mm for both axes) and the shape of the roof is obtained a load compartment far greater than that of the Smart ForTwo.

Technologically curious

The curious tail lights are made in such a way that they can be opened: inside the lighthouse on the right side is the charging socket of the high-voltage battery, while on the left there is a convenient cup holders.

The more detail and original that attracts more attention, however, is definitely the projector located inside the air intake on the hood that can also be operated by iPhone. In front grille consists of small holes is placed the logo Smart large to emphasize the three-dimensional design of the curved front.

Another very curious thing stands out to the eye when looking the mirror center that is not there! In its place there is a stand where you can enter a smartphone (it s appropriate to call it that) that will allow you to view images from the rear camera integrated help maneuvering and allows the driver to have a clear view in the rear of the car.

The smartphone is also the media center of the car and allow you to control the projector and the audio system of the car which, thanks to the presence of high-quality speakers and amplifiers inside of the doors, will contribute to an excellent acoustic performance while watching the movies or listening to music.

innovative interior

Entering inside the spacious (for just two people) interior of Forstars you can not help but notice the remarkable solutions futuristic but functional at the same time characterized by a dash lines dictated by aerodynamics for ventilation.

As for the Smart forvision to which this concept is inspired, we find a dashboard design very pleasant that is used as a system of circulation of the air inside the passenger compartment by means of small holes distributed over the entire surface.

The smooth and pleasant to touch are two-tone, pearl white to match a shade Alubeam Rouge also link up well with the brushed aluminum inserts.

After looking at the dashboard and doors (also color), we put our attention on bucket seats with center opening: they are covered with a special fabric designed to remember the comfort offered by a hammock.

All coatings of the interior are easily removable, or to be cleaned or to change them with others of a different color.

The main material that dominates the interior is white skin: very soft and perforated on the steering wheel and seats.

Looking up at the top instead we see the glass roof of the convex profile that gives a lot of light passenger and joins seamlessly to the door of the cargo.

The loading door on the tail has electronic opening, the platform moves back instead of 280 mm at the same time the door while the tailgate flows down: so the operations of loading and unloading are made easier. Are also present inside the compartments to the left and right of the loading compartment which has aluminum bars.


The electric motor that propels the car is placed under the rear deck, supported by a 17.6 kWh battery pack, a power output of 60 kW (corresponding to 82 hp) and 135 Nm of torque. Allows you to push the car to a top speed of 130 km per hour acceleration has not yet been officially declared but must be quite low due to the characteristics of the car.

The Smart Forstars Concept is longer than 30% of the current generation ForTwo, wider, lower and wider with a step of 24%. Thus increasing the driving pleasure and the size of the passenger compartment. For more information and details we just have to wait for the Paris Motor Show 2012 (scheduled from September 27 to October 14).
