World premiere of smart #3 at Auto Shanghai 2023

SHANGHAI: In a world premiere at Auto Shanghai 2023, the Mercedes-Benz global design team unveiled the smart #3, the iconic brand’s first-ever sports utility coupé.

The smart #3 has a premium and sporty look, as it shares the same design philosophy as the smart #1.

The first model in the new product range, the smart #1, has made its European market debut and is set to arrive in Britain in summer this year.

"As an all-electric pioneer, smart is committed to uncompromising quality of experience and interactions. Therefore, smart will keep on expanding its product family to offer a variety of cars that optimally suit different customer groups and lifestyles,” said Dirk Adelmann, CEO of smart Europe.

At the front, the smart #3 has slimmed down CyberSparks LED headlights that are paired with a distinctive “shark nose” and A-shape wide grill.

On the sides, the prominent two-tone roof meets the smooth, continuous e-line that connects the A-pillar and C-pillar, creating an elegant sporty silhouette.

In the interior, the sculpted dashboard flows seamlessly into a high console, housing the central cockpit, a 12.8-inch elevated central screen.
Thanks to a longer wheelbase, the smart #3 offers an even more spacious interior.

Integrated headrests additionally increase the driving comfort, and the infotainment system has a 13-speaker Beats sound system.

The smart #3 will come in new colours, including a vibrant Photon Orange Metallic and a futuristic Electric Blue Matte exterior as well as a new Vibrant Brown interior variant.

The smart #3 will be presented to the European audience at IAA Mobility 2023 Munich, Germany in September 2023, before launching in the respective European markets early next year.
