Adding a top gives this concept an extra dash of character.

Smart on Friday unveiled the Forease+ concept ahead of its formal debut at the Geneva Motor Show next week.

Adding that taut fabric roof to the concept gives it more of a fastback look than the Forease concept, and as Smart itself notes, it adds some all-weather versatility.

The roof is made of a hard shell covered in fabric, and it's removable.

Otherwise, it's largely the same design we saw in Paris.

There's a set of crazy taillights out back, hanging out above a serious diffuser.

It sports some aggressive bumpers and the same three-element LED lights that we loved in the initial concept.

As was the case with the Forease, the Forease+ is entirely electric.

This mirrors Smart's production-car shift, which will see the entire brand going battery-electric by 2020.

Since it's just a concept, I wouldn't exactly expect many (or any) of these styling cues to pop up in the future, but life is full of surprises.
