Exciting news: the US is finally getting its first widely available 100% electric vehicle from smart. And you can be one of the first to test drive the zippy new model before it hits the market when the smart funtestdrive rolls into San Francisco on May 11. Sign up for a first-look test drive here. Then head to the Ferry Building to enjoy local food and music while you explore both the new smart electric drive and the original smart fortwo. And as if more incentive is needed—every attendee will have a chance to win a two-year lease.*
The smart electric drive is the lowest-priced fully electric vehicle available. Offering 122 city MPGe in a compact, customizable thrill ride, we'd say there's no other choice for fuel efficiency. Learn more and register for the funtestdrive, this way. >>
