Some of the most resounding models in the company's modern history include the Smart City-Coupé (C450), Smart Crossblade, Smart City-Coupé (C450) & City-Cabrio, Smart K (Japan only), Smart Roadster Coupé (R452), Smart Roadster Cabrio (C452), Smart Forfour (W454), Smart Fortwo (C451), Smart Fortwo Cabrio (A451), Smart Fortwo Electric Drive, Smart Fortwo Cabrio Electric Drive.

When the Smart ForTwo (formerly known as the Smart City-Coupe and City-Cabrio) was introduced in 1998, all history was written. ForTwo has been sold in almost two million units since that launch (Smart is in 46 different markets), a steady rate of about 100,000 units a year.

Eventually, after establishing itself on the market (there were none like it), Smart released the Smart Roadster (as a coupe and a cabriolet), which had better handling and a lower center of gravity (which was discontinued and was not replaced). Smart and Renault created the current lineup of Fortwo and Forfour models - both are almost as good as the Renault Twingo.

Origin of LHD Smart Car

The Smart Car has a fascinating history, even though it's quite a young brand. They started developing an idea for a car using the same personalization they used on Swatch (the big brand of watches in the eighties and nineties). Nicolas Hayek, the CEO, said car companies ignored those who wanted small, stylish cars. The idea was called the 'Swatchmobile' in a short time, but this name, unfortunately, did not stick. Hayek was concerned that the 'Swatchmobile' would threaten the rest of the automotive industry, so he didn't want to compete with it. If they used the name 'Swatchmobile,' probably not, but he wanted to cooperate instead of competing.

Then Hayek talked to a few manufacturers, finally settling on Volkswagen for joint development. A new Volkswagen CEO ended the project with SMH in 1993, making things challenging for Swatch. Hayek had a feeling this was going to happen, so he looked for other partners. Daimler-Benz AG, the maker of Mercedes-Benz, got in touch with him after Fiat and Renault turned him down.
