Did you know that comedian Jon Lovitz introduced the Smart pickup concept at the Daimler press conference? Ok, start laughing. And that the For-Us builds on the grand tradition of Americana haulers. Stop laughing.
The For-Us concept may never see the light outside design studios and auto shows, but it does draw attention to the electric power supply in the Smart EV. That is, a 55-kilowatt magnetoelectric motor. If one day, time turned to lemon drops, and unicorns materialized atop Mount Rushmore and pooped cinnamon toast on Teddy Roosevelt's head, the For-Us might actually hit its potential of 80 mph.
Also, there's a cargo area spanning three feet, with a power tailgate. That'll be awesome when shopping for half-penny nails at Bonsai Home Depot.
