Thank-you Micronut!
What a great write-up!
That had facts, figures, numbers, and pictures.
That is the best one yet. I printed it twice, one for my leisurely perusal, and one to send a naysayer.

Smart's 1998 Launch Suspended

What delays are we prepared for?

In 1997 the promotional bombardment of the new Smart was suspended when test drivers tip over several Smart cars during "extreme driving tests," according to Nicolas Hayek, then vice chairman of the Micro Compact Car joint venture between Daimler and Swatch.

In October 1998, following a six-month delay concerning safety, the Smart city coupe went on sale in Europe.
