I sent that news story to the local center manager this morning – she's probably known for awhile, but must be elated nonetheless. More smart sales; gas this time.

Garage
The question is, where do all those EDs go, and how can I snag one? ;)

In a previous San Diego C2G ED firesale they were sent to a dismantler.

Perhaps because of the weak resale value of the "sled" they pull the high value battery pack to avoid potential warranty claims on a rental that may have been abused?

And "a ton" of them carry salvage titles for obvious reasons...

Please note that this thread WAS about the C2G EV (not gas) Fleet, all M-B owned smart ED's?

Gasp! An SCoA thread hijack??

The thread was (originally) about Car2Go switching from electric to gas smarts in San Diego... because my city failed to develop sufficient infrastructure to support Car2Go EVs. But what the heck, let's meander the topic awhile – as with all threads! ;)

I apologize if I upset the thread. I was mainly making a point of the irony of Car2Go killing their electric fleet for gas when, for some reason, there is a "fleet" of low/no mileage gas cars already in the auction yard.

Don't apologize – I was just joking around, in reply to MB DNA, because every one of us hijacks topics! Threads on this forum have a mind of their own – often the twists and turns can be more fun than the topic.
