While consumers in the United States were introduced to the compact Smart Fortwo a decade ago, the company is actually rooted much further back, with prototypes appearing as early as the 1970s. Smart started out as a joint venture between Swatch, a European watch manufacturer, and Smart’s parent company, Mercedes-Benz, eventually culminating into the quirky little Smart cars we see on the road today. Boasting high gas mileage and a price tag half that of a hybrid, Smart hit the US market just in time for the hike in gas prices that persisted through the 2000s and into our current decade. Smart cars offer a fun, unique, efficient alternative to the conventional car, coupled with the reliability and engineering of Mercedes. What’s not to love?
