Europe: Mercedes-Benz Unveils Electric Car in Paris

Prior to the opening of Paris Motor Show next week, Mercedes-Benz’s Smart division announced that it will be bringing an electric-powered concept car to the event.

The next-generation Smart car, also known as Forstars, is a two-seat vehicle that previews the exterior styling set for a new model. It includes the third-generation Fortwo and second-generation Forfour. Both will be developed and produced in cooperation with Renault.
Smart Forstars: The New Sport-utility Coupe

The concept behind Forstars is similar with the rear-engine/rear-wheel-drive mechanical package used on the For-us pickup, which was presented during the Detroit motor show last January.

It also gives a hint at what Smart describes as a new sport-utility coupe. The car is also under consideration as an affordable rival to other models like Volkswagen CrossUp. According to a high-ranking source from Smart:

The intention is here, but nothing is decided at this stage. We can’t ignore the fact that SUV sales continue to grow and will likely to continue to do so in the near future.
