Smart Pulls Plug On Electric Car Plans In U.S. & Canada

Say goodbye to the Smart city car in the United States and Canada. The little two-seater runabout firm owned by Daimler will depart the U.S. / Canadian markets at the end of this year, according to a report from TechCrunch.

The article cites two unnamed sources in the know about the decision, which TechCrunch then alleges was confirmed by a Daimler AG spokesperson through an email statement. has contacted Smart for confirmation of the report.

Only 1,246 models were sold last year.

The microcar is presently available only as an EV in the U.S. and Canada, with the gasoline-powered ForTwo having been dropped in 2017. The brand first arrived stateside back in 2008, and though it was always slated as something of a low-volume niche vehicle, sales never really took off.
