In late August, a colleague and I traveled to New York to cover a couple of interesting green mobility stories for Eco-mobility.tv. It was a great experience and I think we got some really cool shots. The Smart EV story is the one I finished editing first. I'll upload the rest to ecomobility.tv and Vimeo within the coming weeks.
Looking forward to your comments.
And, here is some more information about the new Smart EV...
Smart USA will begin deploying a fleet of 250 electric drive vehicles across the United States this fall, targeting key electrification leadership cities and Department of Energy grant areas. Smart USA is targeting companies, municipalities, organizations and individuals interested in making a passionate statement on conservation and environmental awareness.
Partners for vehicle placements will be announced later this year, and series production for consumer sales in smart center dealerships will begin in 2012 with the 2013 model year.
The United States’ fleet of 250 electric drive vehicles will begin arriving in October 2010 and is part of the second phase of a three-phase roll-out program. Phase one started with the placement of 100 electric drive units in London in 2007. Phase two is producing 1,500 cars for cities in Europe, the United States and Canada as well as selected markets in Asia, and first deliveries started in Germany late last year. Phase three will be series volume production starting in the 2012 model year.
