CNET Car Tech: 2011 Smart Electric Drive

Oddly enough, this is what all Smart cars should be. Sort of. Fore!


Fore! The Smart Electric Drive Passion Coupe is, for all intents and purposes, a golf cart. And we mean that with love and respect. Brian Cooley takes you for a drive to check the tech and how this beast is both the salvation and damnation of the whole Smart thing.

(We also have a CNET First Drive writeup of the Smart Electric Drive .)
