I've seen notes on Redflagdeals (a Canadian deals forum) that the Smart ED is no longer available to order based on feedback from the head office in mid-town Toronto.

The details are that the next generation Smart Fortwo (gas) is coming in late 2015 to Canada, with the electric drive one year later (late 2016). :crying:

Hope it's not true, but if it is, then we went out on a high, as Smart Canada sold 133 ED's in August, which is the most pure electric cars sold in a single month ever in Canada! :D

Does anyone have information to the same effect in the US?

I was just at 2 local smart dealers here in PA.

They have like 4 colors available to order (white, black, silver, dark silver I think and NO red). The dealer was complaining that red was one of his best sellers.

I think there was a note in the computer that a yellow would be available after January.

I visited two dealers, they each had two smart cars for sale, only one was electric.

451 ED production is separate from 453 ICE production. There will be more EDs when the next boat arrives in Canada.

It can be hostile at RFD, I don't post much there it's just not worth my sanity. I much prefer dedicated forums like this where we can discuss the virtues of our cars properly without having to defend every attack.

Looks like my family leased 3 of the 133 cars sold in August. Cheers!

I'm actually surprised only 133 was sold, at my local dealer it was a frenzy, but if they had more I'm sure that number would be even higher.

Only one ED ever came into my local store (Columbus Ohio) to date. It was off the lot within 7 days. Last I checked it was a 3-4 month wait to order a new one so I really hope that capability wasn't taken away.

Picked mine up in Burlington (Ontario) mid-august, they had two. Friend liked it so much he and his wife went the following weekend to test drive and the ED was gone. They ended up taking a gas model for a spin and was told that they are pretty much out of luck for an ED, at least locally.
Glad I got mine when I did.
