The Smart car company was founded in 1993 by two Swatch employees, Nicolas Hayek and Jean-Claude Biver. The company’s first model, the City Coupe, was released in 1998. The car was designed as an urban commuter vehicle, with a small footprint and efficient engine. The company’s second model, the Forfour, was released in 2004. The Forfour is a four-seater that is larger than the City Coupe. The third model, the Fortwo, was released in 2007. The Fortwo is a two-seater that is smaller than the Forfour. All three models are available as hatchbacks or convertibles.
The Smart car company has been a leader in automotive innovation. In 2008, the company introduced the world’s first electric convertible Smart car. In 2009, the company introduced the world’s first smartphone-controlled car. And in 2010, the company introduced the world’s first self-parking car.
Due to its small footprint, the boot space is limited, but this is also its biggest advantage. This makes it easy to park in tight spaces. Another benefit is its fuel efficiency. A Smart car can get up to 55 miles per gallon of gasoline. This makes it an economical choice for city driving.
