The German car manufacturer Pingzhi announced in January last year that it will join hands with China’s Geely Smart Automobile to produce new Smart cars in China. Smart, known for its extremely compact body, will be transformed into a pure electric vehicle brand under the new Sino-German joint venture, and the body design will also undergo major changes. Although the new Smart will not be unveiled until the Munich Auto Show in September, the official promotional photos have been exposed.
Gorden Wagener, the chief designer of Heiji, recently shared a bird’s-eye view of the new Smart electric car on his Instagram. The new car is no longer as compact as the previous two-seater ForTwo, but a small electric SUV. Since the uploaded picture is a bird’s-eye view, only the roof design and sleek lines can be seen roughly.
It is reported that the new Smart electric SUV will use Geely’s SEA platform, and it is said that the body size will be 4 meters long, which is similar to the MINI Countryman. It is pointed out that the new Smart electric SUV will provide functions such as OT update, voice control and digital car keys. There are rumors that the new car will be equipped with a battery below 70kWh, providing 268 horsepower and a range of more than 500 kilometers.
