The Frankfurt Motor Show continues as Smart has taken the wraps off their new FourJoy concept.
Looking instantly recognizable, the model echoes previous concepts and has a familiar front fascia with a honeycomb grille and LED-infused headlights. More notably, there's a polished aluminum tridion safety cell that contrasts with the pearlescent white paint on the bumpers, bonnet and tailgate.
While the production ForFour will be a far cry from the concept, Smart CEO Dr Annette Winkler hinted "The exterior proportions already reveal a lot about the appearance of our four-seater production smart that will be launched at the end of 2014."
The stylish cabin draws inspiration from modern lounge furniture and features 'floating' seats, a full-length center console and a single-spoke steering wheel. The concept also has metallic trim, alloy pedals and two smartphones that act as infotainment systems.
Motivation is provided by a 75 HP (55 kW) electric motor that is powered by a 17.6 kWh lithium-ion battery. Performance specifications were not released but Smart says the model is "agile and lively to drive" and can be fully recharged in approximately seven hours using a household outlet.
