Smart wants you to load your electric bikes in its For-Us pickup concept and hit the hills.
DETROIT--At the 2012 North American International Auto Show here, Smart unveiled its For-us concept, a "pickup" that can carry cargo such as bicycles. At only 140 inches long, it's practically small enough to fit in the bed of a typical U.S. pickup.
The all-electric For-us is powered by a 55-kilowatt magneto-electric motor, with a top speed over 80 mph. Its lithium-ion battery can be recharged from 20 to 80 percent in about three and a half hours, according to the company.
