Smart unveils new two-seater car

German car manufacturer Smart has developed a new two-seater model, without a roof or side windows.

The Smart Forspeed concept, which sports a zero-emission electric drive system, will be introduced to the world at the Geneva Motor Show next month. The vehicle comes with a low-wind deflector instead of a windscreen.

The company is likely to reveal further details regarding the Forspeed ahead of its debut at the event.

Dr. Annette Winkler, head of Smart said: "The Smart Forspeed is a completely new take on how much fun it is to drive electric: it boasts a superb design with a powerful drive system and, needless to say, locally emission-free.

"And if you put the Smart Forspeed next to our ebike, escooter and Smart Fortwo electric drive you'll see that Smart has realised all kinds of variations of electric driving - demonstrating that smart is not just a practical city car, but a great idea."
