The ForStars concept is also an electric vehicle that borrows its 60kW electric motor the Smart BRABUS. smart boss Dr Annette Winkler says: “The smart is Europe’s most inexpensive series-produced electric car. Not only is it emission-free and fast, it is also possible to conveniently set the perfect interior temperature in advance with a smartphone, and it is simple to charge at a domestic socket. What’s more, with its powerful battery and integrated projector the smart forstars can transform any grey backyard into an animated open-air cinema.”

The ForStars concept features familiar smart styling, with many styling cues borrowed from the Smart For-Us concept that was unveiled earlier this year. The forstars concept rides on a wheelbase that is longer than the current for-two and it has has a wider track and more ground clearance. One unique styling feature is the convex glass coupé roof that joins seamlessly with the glass cover over the cargo area which opens upwards.
