smart electric SUV all set for April 7 debut

BERLIN: smart will be unveiling the #1, its first all-new production car as a purely electric brand on April 7.

The reveal event takes place in the brand's trademark urban style at STATION-Berlin, a historic landmark and disused train station in the German capital, and builds on last year’s reveal of the dramatic concept #1 showcar.

With the renewal of its brand, product and business model, smart has entered a new era of development, with the expansion of its product portfolio and global reach.

The smart #1, with its elegant and aerodynamic exterior, is the inaugural product of the new joint venture between Mercedes-Benz and Geely Automobile.


The smart #1 had recently completed extensive pre-production testing in northern China, with its battery and technology systems being put to the test in -40°C temperatures.

The smart Europe team is also supporting testing and local homologation through the original smart research and development centre in Renningen, Germany.

The team, led by Tilo Schweers (Vice President of R&D), are putting the smart #1 through its final testing whilst also carefully preparing the showcars for the Berlin reveal event.
