We’ll be during a Detroit Auto Show subsequent month to constraint all 11.6 feet of it. Until then, we can review about it in a press recover after a burst as well as have a demeanour during sketches in a high-res art studio of images.
Stuttgart – December 07, 2011. intelligent is branch a automotive universe upside down once again as well as severe ideas about what an civic pickup should demeanour like.

Thanks to a state-of-the-art electric expostulate with a55 kW magneto-electric engine a zero-emission intelligent for-us is flexible as well as sharp-witted to drive. It will applaud a universe premiere during a North American International Auto Show in Detroit (14 – twenty-two Jan 2012).
smart CEO Dr. Annette Winkler says “We during intelligent adore pick-ups – if they have been tiny upon a outside, vast upon a inside, really protected as well as intensely comfortable. With a intelligent for-us a engine fuel hire is no longer required!”

The design: smart-alecky as well as strong with intensely reduced overhangs
Compared with a series-produced fortwo a intelligent for-us creates a absolute matter as well as a coming plays with a armed forces picture of required mega-pickups. Nevertheless, it greets a spectator with a accessible nonetheless noisy face. It facilities convex as well as sensuously made physique surfaces. The vast code button is proudly sported upon a grille, as well as a front has a conspicuous three-dimensional pattern with an underride ensure finishing off a reduce partial of a front end.
The longer wheelbase (2480 mm/plus 613 mm) as well as a lane that has been widened by 50 mm upon any side additionally emphasize a strong demeanour of a study. At a same time a intensely reduced overhangs during a front as well as back have it awfully compact.
The tailboard during a back of a intelligent for-us is electrically driven. When it opens initial of all a load building together with tailboard retracts by 280 mm, afterwards a tailgate slides down in a together position. The load upon a 900 mm load area is afterwards intensely easy to access.

Stylish, uncomplicated, rarely organic as well as easy to particularise – a dual seats in a judgment automobile have been typically smart. The chair shells, that have been open in a middle, have been lonesome with a soothing yellow fabric chuck giving them a hammock-like seating feel.
Electric expostulate – zero-local-emission pushing fun
The electric expostulate of a intelligent for-us is formed upon a innovative expostulate judgment of a intelligent fortwo electric drive, that will be launched in a open of 2012. Thanks to a 55 kW magneto-electric engine a intelligent for-us is flexible as well as sharp-witted to drive. With 130 Newton metres of hanging ornament it boasts powerful, lag-free increase in speed as well as it can pass alternative vehicles with a biggest of ease. The limit speed exceeds 120 km/h. The lithium-ion battery has genius of 17.6 kWh.
