I like it with the little suicide doors instead of 4 full normal doors. I've always liked the smart cars, but for the price and size I just always thought they'd get like 70 MPG and they get just over 40. Jeez, I can buy an 15 year old civic and get 40 MPG. Or if they cost about half of what they do. Again for perspective, I can buy an entry level Corolla or Civic for about the same as a smart, maybe just slightly more.

I actually like that last one. It would look better if the entire bottom half were red and the pillars & roof were black.

These things are to Europeans as SUV's are (were?) to Americans.

lol TATA is an Indian (i think) car company that makes cheap, slow cars and trucks. When I was deployed in Africa saw a lot of these, especially the trucks.

:chuckles: I can't exactly do that.

You thinking about selling the Prius for a Smart?
I've had the car itch for a while now. And I'm out of all my warranties now except the hybrid warranty. Almost bought a G37S a few days ago.

I would buy one of these electric-mostly cars that are coming out soon. Since my commute is only 9 miles each way, I could easily stay on battery almost all the time. I would have to buy one that has a regular engine though in case I go on a longer trip. Electric only wouldn't work, but something like the Volt or Leaf definitely could.

I'm still mad at Smart for making a car the size of a sardine can that doesn't get 40 MPG and needs premium gas. Come on, my 1990 Civic got 42 MPG on cheap gas.

:werd: With something the size of the Smart you would have at least expected something in the order of 50 mpg.
