After seeing the item in Automotive news about the ED's coming as late as 2018 I went to their site and spotted something under the Smarty search. MB US is not going to import the Forfour, only the Fortwo.. To me that makes sense as there are too many small four door cars already and some are way better than others.

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."

Oh wow, I didn't know this wasn't in General. :sorry:

On topic: We're about to reach mid-month. sUSAi's Admins haven't added any additional info. Out of curiosity I called out to my local dealership. They're accepting "reservations" despite not knowing a single thing about the 453.
