The Smart Fortwo (stylized as "smart fortwo") is a rear-engine, rear-wheel-drive, 2-passenger hatchback ultramini manufactured and marketed by the Smart division of the German multinational Daimler AG. Introduced in 1998, it is now in its third generation.
The first generation was internally designated as the W450, launched at the 1998 Paris Motor Show. The second generation W451 build series was launched at the 2006 Bologna Motor Show. The third generation Fortwo (2014–) was internally designated as the C453 build series, and debuted globally on July 16, 2014, at the Tempodrom in Berlin along with a closely related four-door version, the Smart Forfour, co-developed and sharing the same platform and engines with the third-generation Renault Twingo.
Marketed in 46 countries worldwide, Fortwo production had surpassed 1.7 million by early 2015. The brand name Smart derives from its early history as a cooperative venture between Swatch and Mercedes: Swatch Mercedes ART.[ The Fortwo nameplate derives from its two-person seating capacity. Until 2004, the Fortwo had been marketed as the smart City-Coupé.

The Smart Fortwo Model
The 1:24 scale model die-cast metal with plastic parts in our collection is the electric version. This model is a model that stands out because it represents this particular vehicle and is accurate in the out side in its dimensions and presentation. Because of its size, the two doors open nicely and the interior is reasonable in showing the details. Other than the seats done in a different colour, the rest of the interior is black with no other colours. rear door opens slightly giving a glimpse of what could be the battery pack, which is in a silver colour. Underneath, there are no details.
This model is very basic and is a display for the museum in that it shows the different brands that have made the transition of converting some of their models to electric. I rate this as a 2.5/5.0. Robin Finlay. 30/08/2022.
