At the Geneva Motor Show this week is an updated version of Smarts electric car study ForEase – the ForEase +. The vehicle is a pure show car, but gives an outlook on the future direction of the small car manufacturer.
"As a stylish and sophisticated idea, the Smart ForEase + shows the spirit of the brand: individual, reduced and sustainable. The show car continues to be an impressive statement of smart-typical coolness and urbanity, "said the new smart boss Katrin Adt. The ForEase + shows that the future of the manufacturer "is anything but boring".
The ForEase + is based on the production model Smart EQ ForTwo Convertible. Smart is fully geared to the electric drive by the end of the decade. The range of combustion engines will be successively reduced, from 2020 there will be the ForTwo, the ForTwo convertible and the larger ForFour only with battery technology.
The demand for Smart's power supplies is already high, but the Daimler subsidiary can not currently supply many customers or only with a long wait. The reason is to be trouble with the Korean battery supplier LG Chem. Adt assured in February: "We do not want delivery bottlenecks. Anyone ordering a car should get it quickly. "The production will now be ramped up.
