One of the most interesting options of green car out there is the smart car. This two door coupe gets high miles per gallon and is designed to get the clutter off of the roads. Each smart car has standard features that will impress any car buyer. For example the transmission is the 5-speed smartshift that has two modes, automatic and manual. What makes this little car so intriguing and exciting? I love it for it’s small design with big space. I don’t feel like I am crammed into a tiny ride. Of course, I am also loving the environmental aspect of the car too. I can run to the store for the essential eggs, K2 basic incense, and milk and not feel like I am emitting a ton of waste. Let’s look into the smart car and see why their motto “unboring” is completely accurate.
High MPG – The three coupe options (pure coupe, passion coupe, and passion cabriolet) all get about 33 mpg in the city and 41 highway miles. The electric drive smart car gets you 87 highway mpg. Sounds like a winner, right?
Safety – The car may be small, but safety is the first priority with the tridion safety cell that has been designed into the car. This cell absorbs impact and helps keep passengers safe, just in case. Not only does the cell provide ultimate safety, but smart cars are designed and built by Mercedes-Benz, so the standards of safety smart lives up to are some of the toughest in the industry.
Looks Matter Too – The body panels on the smart are easy to customize and quickly changeable so your car will always look good. That looking good also does good for the environment too. The panels are actually recyclable, so your helping out mother nature and looking fly in your ride.
Eco-Friendly – The body panels of the smart are not the only thing that is kind to the earth. The smart has no backseat whatsoever to eliminate the empty seats that exists everyday on commutes to and from work. Another bonus is that 85% of a smart is completely recyclable, so most of the car can be re-used. The size of the car is a huge green boost because small means less. The car’s size means you will use less fuel and have less emissions.
