Is this Alpine head unit REALLY compatible with the 2018 Fortwo 453 EV?

I’ve been searching for a CarPlay-compatible head unit for my 2018 Smart Cabrio (non-factory -navigation, non JBL system) and there is an Alpine unit that keeps appearing, however it appears to only be sold in Europe. Was browsing Amazon and rain into this Alpine with similar model number. Amazon says it’s compatible, but do I dare believe it? Anyone try this unit or want to hazard a guess? Thanks!

^Puma that's a 451. OP is asking for a 453, of which there is only 2 known working stereos, both of which have specific model numbers.
You could get one of these. These are all single Din radios with Carplay. You can then get a single Din surround as stated in the Evilution guide listed above. Don't get a CarPlay adapter. There are lots of bad reviews on those and I'm guessing you want more than just audio.
