Will the Hybrid Smart Make it to the US

Everyone is asking right now if the US will get the latest Smart Car Hybrid with start and stop technology and like many other things that smart usa will not tell us, the anser is likely NO. We know we are not getting the diesel engine smart so why would we get this added technology.

A little about this new technology:

The combination of an electric motor and a combustion engine makes the smart fortwo even more economical and environmentally friendly than ever. The hybrid concept reduces consumption and emissions for both the diesel and the petrol version by around 12 percent. For example, the standard consumption (NEDC) of the smart fortwo hybrid drive (hd) diesel is reduced from 3.3 litres to 2.9 litres per 100 kilometres. Carbon dioxide emissions fall from 88 to 77 grams per kilometre. This means that the CO2 champion is setting new standards for the "three litre" car. No other diesel car is more fuel-efficient and climate-friendly.

And now, the photos that will really make you jealous!!!
