Vancouver (GVRD) 453's

Any 453 owners from the GVRD on here? The only other 453 I've seen "in the wild" is a White/Black Trid Passion that is sometimes parked in Yaletown in the mornings.

Considering that only about 90 of the 453s have been sold in all of Canada since last year, I would guess that maybe 15 of them are in the Vancouver area. So the pickins are slim at the moment.

Well I've seen one parked in Yaletown, and know a few more have been sold. Also a prime was ordered from the factory for a lady. I think when the cabrio arrives a few enthusiasts will show up. I'm planning on bringing my 453 to next big local car meet this spring as well..

Good idea. Get the car out there, it's more than smart is doing!

If I was running marketing for smart Canada, I would just park them inside the local shopping malls. I see other car manufacturers do this all the time. The 453 is so strange looking that I'm sure it would generate some interest.

Hello, yes I live in Vancouver and have just purchased a 2016 Prime Smart about a month ago. I just love all the new upgrades on it. I had a 2006 Diesel Grand Style for 10 years which I traded in for the new 453.
I love the Brand Smart and will remain loyal for years to come.
Have got lots of comments of the new look of the car . Its super zippy around traffic congested Vancouver, I always find parking and can turn on a dime if there is construction delays ahead.
Mine is metallic yellow and black.
