The electric smart for-us pick-up mobility concept has had its world premiere at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The electric drive of the smart for-us is based on the drive concept of the smart fortwo electric drive, which will be launched from the spring of 2012.

The 55 kW magneto-electric motor and 17.6 kWh lithium-ion battery provides the smart for-us with 130 Newton metres of torque and a top speed of over 75 mph.

Like car2go, the global car sharing initiative from smart for more flexibility in city traffic, the smart for-us is a mobility concept. It has plenty of room for two people and space for two smart ebikes behind them.

Thanks to the docking station on the cargo area of the smart for-us their batteries are always charged and they enable smart for-us drivers to also reach destinations that are out of bounds for cars – for example traffic-calmed zones in the city.
