the smart vision EQ fortwo is summoned using a mobile device and exterior surface displays make it easy for one to recognize their individualized car. this particular concept car has a particularly interesting ‘black panel grille’ at its front and side projection surfaces, that aid in communication between car and passenger. it serves to both add a personal touch, and to communicate with other road users (e.g. information for pedestrians crossing the road). the doors of the concept car are coated with a film that can be activated as required. if the car is unoccupied, information about local events, the weather, news or the time can be displayed.

the concept embodies the future of urban, automotive luxury and convenience. the recharable lithium-ion battery has a capacity of 30kWh. when not in use, the EQ fortwo can find its own way to a charging station. in an alternative effort to more effectively use energy, this concept car demonstrates essential elements that make it a viable option for the car2go system. smart works to transform ‘urban traffic’ into ‘city flow’ in the future. EQ fortwo not only benefits the individual users, but also the public at large, cities, and municipal authorities — target groups for future car sharing concepts from smart.

smart’s vision seeks to not only minimize the overall mass of the vehicle, but also maximize the interior space for passenger comfort, embracing the minimalist design of many of the brand’s vehicles. to save additional space, the doors have a wing-like pivot over the rear axle — also reducing likely collisions with passing cyclists and pedestrians. by making steering wheels and pedals obsolete, the interior can become more spacious. the dashboard in the smart vision EQ fortwo is replaced by a 24 inch screen. the interior also prioritizes intelligent stowage, providing easily accessible storage options for easy accessibility and tightening straps for larger belongings.
