Smart ForStars Concept Car

Based on the latest of several concept cars, we can clearly see in what direction Smart is going. New concept ForStars, which will debut at the Paris Motor Show later this month, was certainly based on the familiar theme. While Smart ForVision strongly hinted at the next generation ForTwo, ForStars, seems to announce a new model that focuses on small customers crossovers.

Smart calls ForStars a new “utilitarian sports coupe”, with increased ground clearance and cargo area which can find a response from clients seeking a small car (but not as small as ForTwo). Overall ForStars style may be already familiar to us – there is visible impact For Vision and For-Us. Smiling front fascia, chubby “cheeks” with dimples and upper-lightes eyebrows resemble “angry” version of Speed Buggy or long-dead Suzuki X-90. In effect ForStars has the same electrical components that are also used in Brabus Electric Drive concept and For-Us, but it has a more powerful 80-horsepower engine, working together with a lithium-ion battery capacity of 17.6 kWh. Therefore we think that this is a sort of a revolutionary vehicle in a small sustainable vehicles segment.
