Smart cars hit milestone with 20,000 sales in 10 months

It’s good to have goals. Otherwise, you’ll get lazy. And, once you make those goals, you should set new ones. So, now, it’s time for Bloomfield Hills-based Smart Car USA distributor to set a new goal since they’ve reached their last one – to sell 20,000 Smart Cars in 10 months.

If you don’t know already, Smart Cars are those tiny little baby autos you see out on the road.


“Hitting this landmark just 10 months following sales launch proves that the Smart Fortwo is changing the landscape of America’s highways,” said Dave Schembri, president of Smart USA. “More U.S. consumers are discovering that the Fortwo is the right car at the right time, offering a high level of fuel efficiency, comfort, agility, safety and ecology.”

The Smart Fortwo is the most fuel efficient, non-hybrid vehicle in the United States according to the 2009 EPA Fuel Economy Guide, achieving an average of 41 miles per gallon on the highway.

The Fortwo is also certified by the EPA as a “Smartway” vehicle, which indicates good environmental performance, placing it among the “greenest” vehicles on the market.
