smart will build scooters?!

If it were April, I'd be really skeptical. Perhaps they're envisioning something like the Honda city car concept with the built-in electric unicycle?

We Hear: Smart to Build a Scooter?

Well that is interesting,
The question is, will it be designed to be able to fit inside the smart? Drive to town, Park, scooter to destination.

Here's that Honda I was thinking of... It "integrates the miniscule U3-X electric transporter directly into its passenger door frame". But, that's not really a "scooter", so we'll have to see what they've got up their sleeve.

Thanks for the link! So, Daimler's been working on it for a little while, but recently assigned the new product to the smart brand perhaps. It would certainly be one way to attract more people with the right kind of mindset into smart showrooms.

There are several articles in the EU presses... search for "Daimler scooter"

Typical comments...

Hmmm...I bet it could probably fit into the rear cargo area?

I don't like scooters.

Too dangerous. I don't think a smart scooter strengthens the brand.

I'd expect any scooter built by smart to be as unconventional as the car.
