We’ve had our 2015 for over two years but now have a question. Is this car capable of having an aluminum ramp attached to back to carry a 330 lb motorized wheelchair? It would have to have a trailer hitch receiver installed, but don’t know if that is possible or if the Smart could carry the weight, help

Hanging 330+ pounds on the back of the car may cause problems with handling and steering; perhaps somebody who has tried it can weigh in....
Welcome to SCoA!

With a Cargo Capacity of only 340 pounds you could have problems with the CG moving rearward such that the front wheels may have very little weight on them (under steer?)??

Add to that nighttime driving where your headlights will be blinding oncoming drivers while lighting the tops of the trees???
