The Smart City Coupe is DaimlerChrysler’s unique interpretation of urban transport. It started life as a collaborative project between Swatch - the famous Swiss watch company and Mercedes Benz, but Mercedes took over the project entirely prior to it going on sale. Its troubled conception meant it took longer to hit the showrooms than had initially been expected and when it arrived sales were slow. European buyers embraced it more than UK customers, no doubt due to left-hand-drive only availability for its first few years of sale. However, it gained a following among the fashionable set, becoming a real hit for those wanting funky transport around town.
