  • Mercedes Smart Car Finally Available In US

    ...but NOT through Mercedes. Rather, ZAPcars has become a direct importer for the cars and has the exclusive ten year distribution rights in the US.

    Only the gas two door version will be available in the US; you'll have to gray market a diesel model from Canada if you want one, and forget the four door model. The four doors sold so poorly in Europe that Daimler Benz is dropping that model and sticking to the two door model.

    Details on how to get yours are here
