The first Smart ForTwo was revealed in 1998 in France. Until now, the compact two-seater has become the vehicle of choice of more than 900,000 customers in 37 countries.
The trendy two-seater has not only become successfully established on the market during this time; over 150,000 customers have purchased a second-generation smart fortwo since the model was introduced in March 2007. All in all, far more than 900,000 smart fortwos have been delivered to customers since the two-seater was launched in 1998.
