We take the USbound Smart Electric Drive for a test drive video

The eponymous “Smart car” has been buzzing around city streets in the US for over five years now. It’s actually called the Fortwo, thanks to its limited seating capacity, and while it didn’t prove to be an immediate hit, sales have been steadily increasing. An electric version of the car has been available in limited numbers overseas for years now, but finally this year it’s coming to the US. And this is it. We got a chance to drive a green vinyl-wrapped Smart Electric Drive around some city streets ahead of the opening of the New York International Auto Show and came away reasonably impressed by this $25,000 EV — the cheapest on the market. Join us after the break for our impressions.
