Looks like Cars2Go is dumping ICE smarts up here now

Was driving by a local used car dealer that had 6 white w/silver tridion smarts on the lot. Stopped and chatted with the owner who said he purchased 13 in total and all were former rental cars. Interesting options, there was no plate on by the mirror indicating model e.g. Passion and all were configured nearly identically, I had actually thought they were Passions but did a vin check and they are Pures. All had stock steel wheels, A/C, leather seats and upgraded JVC radios with satellite antennas on window. Er well it looks like a sat radio puck....

Didn't know this but the VIN tags the cars as Car2Go edition,

Here is just outside of Toronto, dealer was asking $4995 CDN which feels kind of high granted our dollar is still in free fall so when converted to USD it's 3674.32 which still feels high to me. I think if these cars had aluminum wheels instead of steelies I'd be more interested. They do have interesting equipment, though and looking at the vin decode I wonder what this is, K20 SOFTWARE CONTROL CAR2GO.

But that price feels a bit on the high side up here, I thought though looking through Autotrader prices have been actually inching up a bit. Cars were all around 40,000 km or about 25,000 miles. All were white with the silver tridion and all had the Cars2Go stickers removed.
