Smart For-Us Pickup Heads to Detroit

Smart hasn’t had the most successful run in the U.S., but that hasn’t stopped the company from trying. Knowing Americans love pickups, Smart will unveil its vision of what a truck should be at the Detroit Auto Show in January.

Of course the Smart For-Us pickup won’t be going toe-to-toe with F-150s or Rams, but it could be useful for urbanites that still need the practicality of a truck. The For-Us concept features a longer wheelbase and wider track than the ForTwo, along with a small bed, a 75-horsepower electric motor, and extremely short overhangs at the front and rear that make it exceedingly compact.

Smart CEO Dr. Annette Winkler asserted, “We at Smart love pick-ups – if they are small on the outside, large on the inside, very safe and extremely comfortable. With the Smart For-Us a petrol station is no longer required!”

Although retail Smart sales aren’t too impressive these days, the company is attempting to excite American consumers through initiatives like Car2Go, a car sharing program that’s being introduced in numerous cities around the country. Perhaps with a pickup, Smart will finally be able to get some much-needed attention.
