Oh...I'm confusigated. I thought all the smarts in Europe were diesel

Euro smarts are either gas or diesel. Diesel acceptance has been much greater in Europe than the USA due to a significant price difference between the two fuels. Lower diesel tax is the reason over there.

Problem with the diesel smart here was emissions and low-sulfer fuel availability. They got diesels in Canada up through the 450 models, now only gas versions are available there with the advent of the 451.

An electric smart is being sold on for around $30,000. I'll use my savings on the gas version at the fuel pump, thank you.
