From Automotive news...
"The Smart microcar will continue to be a niche product in the U.S. with annual sales of about 10,000.
Management has chosen to sell only one car here -- the miniscule ForTwo and not the four-seat ForFour. There's concern there wouldn't be demand for a tiny four-seater.
ForTwo: The redesigned ForTwo two-door car goes on sale in November. The 106.1-inch length stays the same.
The ForTwo has a turbocharged, three-cylinder 898cc engine with 89 hp mated to either a five-speed manual or a new six-speed dual-clutch transmission.
The new front axle was adapted from the new-generation Mercedes C-class sedan from parent Daimler.
The ForTwo will be freshened in 2018.
A plug-in electric version goes on sale in 2017."
