smart for-us Pickup Concept Hits Detroit

Emmanuel P January 10, 2012

Shown live at the Detroit Auto Show was smart’s For-Us concept vehicle. The pickup truck concept is a refreshing departure from the retrimmed and basically repainted smart vehicles that we are growing tired of seeing. But pickup is a generous description for this city vehicle, as it is not much larger than the smart cars we are used to seeing.

For motive power, this mini-pickup has a 75-horsepower electric motor run by a 17.6 kW/h lithium ion pack. Smart claims 0 to 60 times in five seconds with a top speed of 80 mph. Charging from 20 percent to 80 takes three and a half hours while 8 hours is needed for a complete top up. With only 11.6 cubic feet of cargo space, the for-us is not a very practical hauler but as a concept car, it is an interesting take on a city vehicle.
