The intelligent, all-electric, premium car brand smart has released preliminary design details and the official name of the second model set to launch since the brand’s renewal. The new smart #3 is an all-electric SUV coupé with an outstanding sporty and avant-garde design.
Like the smart #1, the interior and exterior design of the smart #3 is a creation of the Mercedes-Benz global design team. Blending sportiness and dynamism with elegance and beauty, the truly original exterior of the smart #3 is defined by athletic curves and smooth, seamless lines. The result is an emotionally charged design that is defined by vibrancy and energy.
The design is further accentuated by a range of stand-out details. At the front, slimmed down LED headlights are paired with a strong “shark nose” and an A-shaped wide grille. On the sides, the prominent two-tone roof meets with the smooth, continuous e-line that connects the A-pillar and C-pillar, creating an elegant and sporty fastback silhouette. The large, eye-catching alloy wheels add a powerful element, while scooped cooling ducts leave no question as to performance intent.
From the rear, sketches show the smart #3 with a confident curvature created by the prominent spoiler, C-pillar, and strong rear fender and bumper. The look combines athletic appearance with elements of premium, progressively modern features, such as tail lights with pixelated elements.
The smart #3 extends the new product range established by the smart #1, which has made its European market debut and is set to arrive in the UK in summer this year. Further details on the new smart #3 for the European market will be released at a later stage.
