Smart for 5

Anybody thinking this will go over well in the US? I saw the pic of it and it looks a little squishy. I think it was just the prototype. Is there any word on the fuel economy for it yet? I will probably check it out because I am a supporter of the brand. What does everybody else think?

It can't hurt the dealers. Biggest hurdle for sales even if the dealer gets folks in the doors is passenger anxiety. 2 seats makes folks more anxious than the range of under 100 miles on an electric car.

I think the prototype looks terrible. Hoping they will actually come up with something good.

it should be called the "smart forUS" since it's US only.
