“Smart. Open your mind.”
The smart Fortwo has been available in Canada since 2004 through Mercedes-Benz dealers. The Canadians welcomed this car with high demand and with waiting lists in major urban areas in the spring of 2005. The vehicle has been popular for commuters and small car fanatics. In 2009, the Government of Canada acquired the European Smart MHD (micro hybrid drive) through partnership with Mercedes-Benz Canada. Transport Canada administered the program through ecoTECHNOLOGY for Vehicles campaign. Up to this day, Smart has been gaining international fame for producing uniquely styled, highly efficient micro-cars.
