  1. “Dynamic Over-Air Software Updates”
    Wow, dynamic updates! All attention.
    Well, the concept looks really good. Now you should take it quickly at a reasonable price. A small overpriced car does not bring much.

  2. A car that is as wide as the S-Class and higher than an Audi E-TRON 55, to call compact, is just absurd. If Smart stands as a brand for something, then the smart, compact vehicles with consistent design and good room use are. The Machwerk here is the opposite of it.

    The design is also exactly the opposite of Smart. It is unclee, anachronistic, unoriginal – and untypical for the brand. You have already seen something like that. But not with smart. According to the design, it could be good the study of a SUV of the MINI brand.
