Smart future?

[?] I have just returned from 2 weeks in Spain. Saw lots of very small cars and many scooters. fuel is .91 euros per liter, about $1.25. Not as many Smart cars as I would have expected.
I bought a London newspaper, I believe it was the Express, 2.75 euros, about $5.00, and saw and article re. car sales. Mercedes sales falling rapidly, Fiat almost bankrupt. Miles of unsold cars.
It also said Mercedes has lost $3 billion on the smart car and will be phasing them out!.

RE: Smart future?

The new For2 is under development and will be released somwhere next year. I wonder if it will be a better car because my first revue of the For2 in 1999 got me into a big argument with some people at smart...

Is it why they started to sell them here in Canada since a year.

Up to now, in the major M-B dealer in Quebec, they have a 3 month waiting list for the Smart. How is the situation on the western cost?

Glad you liked my photo. I took it at the King Midget Jamboree in Ohio last August, 2005.
