The Smart Crosstown concept shown at the 2005 Frankfurt
Motor Show is a design study based around the existing
The Crosstown concept is configured mostly like the current
two seat model, but Jeep and Mini styling cues combine
to form a much bolder-looking car.
The crosstown's most distinguished feature is a hybrid
three-cylinder gas engine/electric motor, giving 10-percent
better acceleration and 15-percent better fuel economy
than current gasoline-powered fortwos.
The Crosstown also features a stowaway windshield, USB
ports, and an optional navigation system.
Although Smart is one of the only manufacturers to pull
off this type of vehicle in production, the Crosstown
concept has a distinctly 'gimmicky' vibe, this type of
concept city car has been done many, many times.
