The 2017 smart EV launches today!

Now, dealers are waiting for vehicles to arrive. Hopefully they arrive early enough today and not at the end of the day. We will likely need at least another day or two to get at least a few of them through their pre-delivery inspections so we can begin truly offering them for lease, sale, test drives, etc,. Heck, we'll need some time to charge batteries too.

I probably spoke a bit too soon. Not 1 vehicle has arrived at any dealership in the country, which means it'll probably be a "drop off 1 or 2 cars at the local smart center 5 minutes before they close" kind of launch. Then we'll need a few days.

If we're lucky, I suggest at least giving us until Friday before coming in...

Just received our first shipment an hour ago. We'll have 'em ready by Friday. Super busy day getting things prepped, but just wanted to get the word out...

They won't be available for display until Friday...

$23,800 base msrp + $750 destination. Equipment, options is extra.

OH. Looks like the official EPA Rating dropped from 68 prior generation to 58 current generation. Not sure if this will materialize in the real-world driving situations yet, but I plan on logging some miles to try it out. This car is certainly best as a city dweller.

Thanks for the pricing information.

EPA range going backwards with a "next generation" EV is a really big OH!

Perhaps the "whispers" of that reality is weighing on the decisions of some smart Centers to move forward with the brand?

Will be interesting to see how the press and blogasphere play their "all new" reviews?

This is not very smart. The new GM/Chinese venture EV gets better range at 96.

Must be the 10 airbags weighing the car down.
