Smart Pickup

Post by Rislar on Tue Jan 03, 2012 10:59 pm



The people at Daimler's small-car maker, Smart, are reported to be showing the world a 140-inch concept pickup truck at the upcoming North American International Auto Show in Detroit next month. The Smart For-us is likely to be the world's smallest pickup truck — as long as you are very flexible about how you define the words pickup truck.

"In a tongue-in-cheek manner, the For-us signals that this is the right car for the young at heart with active lives who attach importance to low emissions and taking up minimum road space," Smart said in its announcement. Tongue-in-cheek may win them the "Understatement of the Year" award.

For now, Daimler is only providing drawings of the vehicle.

On the plus side, the concept is driven with a 55-kilowatt (or 73 horsepower) electric motor that may provide useful electric power for upcoming real-world models. The bed (or rear deck) is designed to be large enough to hold two bicycles with the tailgate down, as long as you can remove the front tires from the bike's front forks.

Looks like a 90's Honda CRX desol with the boot lid removed.
