Well there has been a solution to the Hybrid Smart Car, although it’s not an OEM and isn’t from Smart Car directly. The Smart Mico Hybrid, which isn’t like your all battery loaded up Prius. Rather its a new system that kills the engine when stationary, not a bad idea in our stop and go world.
According to statistics, it’s supposedly 13% better gas mileage, and a corresponding reduction of its CO2 footprint from 112g/km to 103g/km.
The only noticeable difference is the ECO light on the dash, everything else is identical on all other versions of the Smart. Sales are supposed to begin any time! A greener car for a greener earth.
