First Sketch: Smart For-Us Concept

In America it’s a case of ‘the bigger, the better’ when it comes to pick-up trucks, so this Smart For-Us concept is sure to raise a few eyebrows when it debuts at the Detroit Motor Show next month.

At just over 3.5 metres long it’s just under two metres shorter than America’s best-selling pick-up – the Ford F150. And while that model boasts a two metre-long loading bed, the Smart For-Us has a bed just half that length.

But the For-Us has a few tricks up its sleeve. That load bed has an in-built docking station for two electric smart e-bikes and there’s a tail-gate that opens and retracts electronically.

Power for the car itself comes from the same all-electric set-up used in the Smart EV. That means it produces 74bhp and 130Nm of torque.

Expect to see official pictures and details for the new concept released nearer to its debut in Detroit on the 12th January. For more details click here.
