New model Smart EQ4, but so far only in the picture

Earlier, we already wrote that the question of the future of the brand of Smart Smart sitikars is a big question. Things are not going well for the company and the Daimler concern needs to work hard to change the situation.

It is likely that the Smart brand will soon be closed, but there is no official information about this. Now the concern Daimler AG is looking for various ways to further develop compact sitikar. It is possible that the format of the car will be seriously revised, and the brand will start producing competitors MINI, but this is not accurate. Apparently, the electrification of the classic Smart ForTwo and ForFour models did not give a tangible result and is not worth talking about any significant profitability.

Independent designer Robert Hahn presented his own vision of the company’s future. In his opinion, the lineup should include a modern electric car with fairly compact dimensions, but using advanced technologies that can accommodate up to 5 people with luggage, as well as having a cruising range of up to 500 km.

In addition, Robert told about his own presentation – he also presented his own vision of a particular model, tentatively naming it Smart EQ4. Of course, the picture shows only the concept of the car, but there is something in it.

It is assumed that a sufficiently powerful electric motor will be used, capable of accelerating a compact coupe-shaped car to 100 kmh in 3.9 seconds. And the cost should remain at the level of Tesla Model 3.
