Smart forstars car to debut in Paris

The new Smart forstars car is powered by electricity and has room for two people with lots of storage space within the coupe.

The glass roof above the passengers provides the opportunity to view the stars and this has influenced the name of the vehicle.

The Paris Motor Show from September 29 to October 14 2012 will be where the Smart forstars will be showcased for the first time. The model is produced in Hambach, Lorraine so this will be a local affair for it.

Powering the Smart forstars is a zero-emission 60 kW magneto-electric motor from the new Smart BRABUS electric drive that ensures agility and speed.

Dr Annette Winkler, Smart boss, said: "The Smart is Europe's most inexpensive series-produced electric car. Not only is it emission-free and fast, it is also possible to conveniently set the perfect interior temperature in advance with a smartphone, and it is simple to charge at a domestic socket.

"What's more, with its powerful battery and integrated projector the Smart forstars can transform any grey backyard into an animated open-air cinema."
