Final Chance for Gas Vehicles

As most of you know, the gasoline version of the smart 453 has been discontinued in the United States. The current/future of smart is about 100% electric power.

However. There are still a few gas smarts left in SoCal. Serious folks are welcome to inquire via private message, as most folks seem to believe they are all gone already. Not quite. Almost. But not completely.

It's 2 a.m., and the bartender is making the "last call for gasoline" ...

In 1964 who would have thought - The Times They Are A-Changin' ...

It will be a sad day when the last gas one is gone, but that day is coming soon...

If you live in a "tax upfront" state, then, yeah... I see the issue. California dealers have a contract that pertains to California law, and that alone literally contradicts what other states require in terms of taxes. There may be exceptions to that rule, so I'm dropping hints here. For further Q's, reach me via p.m. and let's see what your proposed scenario is.

Mr Smart LA:

Out of curiosity, do you have a number for how many 2016 and 2017 gasser 453s were imported to the U.S. It would be interesting for 453 .9T owners to know.
