"Bumblebee" Smart Car by aglennc

"Bumblebee" Smart Car

Bright yellow and black -- bumblebee colors!!

Interesting story!! The brand name smart derives from its early cooperative studies with Swatch Watch Company and Mercedes Benz -- "Swatch Mercedes ART". (smART) In its corporate branding, the company uses a lowercase logotype (i.e., smart) and a logo incorporating the letter "c" for "compact". Smart now operates under the Mercedes-Benz Cars division of Daimler AG.

This Smart Fortwo Cabrio model is a rear-engine, rear-wheel-drive, 2-seater, 2-door hatchback city car manufactured and marketed by the Smart division of Daimler AG and introduced in 1998, now in its third generation. Marketed in 46 countries—in Asia, North and South America, Africa, Australia and Europe—production of the Fortwo had surpassed 1.7 million units by early 2015.

I can’t imagine driving this little car on our local southern California freeways!

I agree... interesting! I've always thought smart cars were so cute.

So cute. I appreciate the information, Anita. We seem to have quite a few SMART cars around here. Sometime I might give one a try, but I would NEVER dream of getting one on a freeway.

Very cute car - great for inner city driving - you can park it almost anywhere. Not so great for highways.

Cute looking car. I cannot think that this is a vehicle for the open road but it should be great for inner city conditions.

Very cute, but I wouldn't want to drive it on the freeways either. It's no match for all the SUVs out there!

Often wondered wherethe word Smart came from, I thought it was to do with being smart over petrol consumption, emmisions. A nice little car for around town use only
