Who makes the smart car?

by Pat
(Boulder, CO)

I'm wondering who manufactures the smart car in the U.S.? Some people I've talked to say it's a Chrysler car; others say Mercedes. I even heard something about Swatch, which seems really wild. Or maybe Lexus or BMW?


Can you give me a straight answer on this question of who makes the smart car? Your answer might help me decide on whether this car is for me or not. Thanks!

Hi Pat... Several of the people you've talked to are on the right track. The smart car started out in Europe, when Mercedes Benz decided to team up with the maker of the popular Swatch brand watches to create a small urban commuter car.

By 2007, Americans were starting to realize the value of getting rid of their big gas-guzzling SUVs and moving to more fuel-efficient cars, like the smart car.

So, Daimler Chrysler, of which Mercedes is a part, created a unique version of the smart fortwo just for the U.S., which first rolled off the assembly lines in 2008. more on smart car history here
