Smart Unveils the Futuristic Smart Elf #3 - Coming Soon to Global Markets

On April 17th, 2023, the all-new smart ForTwo #3 officially made its global debut. The new car will have a regular version and a high-performance BRABUS version, and is expected to be launched at the end of this year and put into the European market in 2024. In addition, the official also stated that a new pure electric car will be launched every year from 2022 to 2024.

The exterior of the smart ForTwo #3 continues the family design concept. The front face adopts a similar design to the ForTwo #1, equipped with a through-type headlamp group. The BRABUS version will add more sporty elements to the front face, with blackened smart logo, and elements similar to ventilation duct on the hood, simulated airflow design on the lower bumper and exaggerated design on the vehicle’s bottom around.

Compared with the smart ForTwo #1, the new car is 4,400 mm long, and the wheelbase reaches 2,785 mm, leading the same level of cars. The “four-wheel four-corner” design continues the space design concept of “compact outside and wide inside”.

On the side of the car, the body curves from A-pillar to C-pillar with the roofline naturally connected. At the same time, the large-size wheel hub further enhances the overall sportiness of the car.

At the rear of the new car, the through-type tail light further highlights the fullness of the rear of the car and extends the visual width of the rear. The BRABUS version will still use black coating on the emblem and nameplate. In addition, the new car also draws color inspiration from the vast universe, with three colors to choose from: lunar white, stardust blue, and photon orange.

In terms of interior, the new car adopts the “T-shaped dynamic intelligent cockpit”, not only adding integrated wraparound sports seats, capsule and circular design elements, but also adopting 3D mesh soft-wrapping process for the instrument panel, contrasting stitching design, headrest smart logo, and industry’s first seat rivet design. Turbine-style air vents echo the performance label of Mercedes-AMG. At the same time, the entire cockpit is ergonomically comfortable. The digital instrument panel is integrated with the instrument panel and complements the 12.8-inch suspended center control screen.

The new car adopts a 1.6 square meter immersive panoramic sunroof, and the sandwich silver plating process can block 99\% of ultraviolet rays. The 64-color dual-zone intelligent ambient light, together with the 13-speaker sound system created by Beats gold medal sound engineer, brings users a good visual and auditory experience.

The all-new smart elf #3 is equipped with intelligent technology configuration, creating personalized intelligent experience through UI/UX design and intelligent interaction.

On the “smart Inspiration Planet” intelligent human-computer interaction system, the smart elf #3 will bring a new Avatar voice elf assistant–Cheetah. The Mercedes-Benz global design team drew on and restored 40 image actions and 6 exclusive actions based on the cheetah’s native morphology.

After its debut today, the all-new smart elf #3 will be unveiled at the Shanghai International Auto Show on April 18th.# 1号馆 4A01 展台亮相。
