When DaimlerChrysler announced a couple years ago that they would start selling the microscopic Smart Car in the USA (you may have seen it on the streets of Europe or Mexico), we kicked our heels for joy. America needs an antidote to the SUV!
Then they said they were developing a special American edition of the Smart - an SUV, in fact. Four doors. High suspension. Lots of room in the trunk. Our hearts sank.
Now PSFK informs us the tiny Euro-edition of the Smart will indeed hit US roads in April '08, priced at $12k. For a limited time, you can even reserve a Smart for just $99 down. Huzzah!
