smart unveiling electric forease show car at Paris show

smart will mark its 20th anniversary at the Paris Motor Show in October with the smart forease electric show car. The smart forease is distinguished by the absence of a roof and a shorter windshields. The vehicle is uncompromisingly open.


The smart forease is based on the standard-production smart EQ fortwo cabrio and can therefore be driven. It is a tribute to the two earlier concept vehicles crossblade (2001) and forspeed (2011).

It also affords a preview of the electric future of the smart brand. smart is the first automotive brand with its sights set on a systematic switch from the combustion engine to the electric drive: since 2017, smart has been selling only electric vehicles in the USA, Canada and Norway.

From 2020, it will be marketing only battery-electric cars in Europe, too. The rest of the world is due to follow soon after.
