Smart teases its autonomous electric vehicle ahead of Frankfurt reveal
Judging by the teaser image, the car will communicate its intentions to pedestrians and other motorists with a billboard-like display screen in its nose.

Smart Automobile took to Instagram to tease a new concept car it plans to unveil next month at the Frankfurt Motor Show. It's an all-electric, autonomous car that borrows its electric powertrain from the Mercedes-Benz EQ.

 

 

The Instagram reveal doesn't give much to go on visually, except for an interesting LCD display on the front grille. The EV concept will hit the International Motor Show (IAA) on September 11th. In a news release touting its IAA lineup, Daimler touts the new concept car as being "an intelligent solution for shared urban mobility." The company claims that their new EV concept stands for maximum mobility efficiency in and for the urban environment thanks to systematic further development of the carsharing concept, and makes the vision of individualised, highly flexible urban public transport a reality.

 

 

No word yet on what's under the hood of the unnamed show car, but it could very well be a version of what powers today's production ForTwo Electric Drive. The latter's pure-electric powertrain offers 80 hp, 118-pound feet of torque, and a 17.6-kWh lithium-ion battery good for 124 miles of range in the city.
