Imiev/Smart car

Mon May 13, 2019 8:03 pm

Perhaps this is common knowledge but it was news to me. The imiev started its existence as a 4dr ICE Smart Car in Europe according to this: https://cleantechnica.com/2017/08/06/go ... iev-first/

I googled a 4dr Smart and it does look very similar to the imiev

And now neither of them will be sold in the U.S. :(

Yes, I've mistaken an illustration of the rear of a Smart for an i-MiEV before. I saw this idea posted once here before, but couldn't find it when I was looking for it the other day. It's not even mentioned on the i-MiEV's Wikipedia page. Thanks for the link.

Yes, that's true. I've read the same thing in several places
