Smart to launch limited final run of ICE vehicles

LinkedIn +

Smart has announced that, before it goes all-electric in 2020, it will launch a limited run of special edition vehicles powered by the brand’s final 21 combustion engines. Designed by Konstantin Grcic, the Final Collector’s Edition intends to mark the beginning of a new era.

The edition centres on the idea of 21 years of Smart and 21 vehicles. The vehicles, which have been designed by Grcic and in cooperation with Brabus, will leave the factory in August 2019.

“Smart remains much more than a car – it represents the grand vision of a new form of urban mobility. As such, the groundbreaking decision to switch the entire range to electric drives only as of 2020 is a perfectly logical step,” noted Daniel Lescow, head of brand and product management at Smart.

“For us, the Final Collector’s Edition marks both the end of an era and a new beginning as a significant milestone in the history of smart and towards a future horizon.”
