(just photos, no data)


along with its friend, the eVito:

150 kilometers range with the one-up option on the battery

From the same car company that brought you the electric Smart car. It failed miserably and is no longer sold or supported. Where did they all go? In the plastics recyclable bin!

Man down, man down! Oh gawd did I laugh.

I was hoping for a spectacular collision with parts flying everywhere. Once can barely call that a collision. I did feel a little sorry for the little guy. He couldn't put his little T-Rex robot arms out to catch himself!

Perhaps they were reborn as Fiat Lounges, of which 500 (yes, the model number, but also the count) are available for rental here in Seattle:

Lime is one of the drop-it-anywhere bike/e-bike/scooter rental companies.

I'm thinking the Smart batteries that no owner owned in their car are being repurposed & installed in the new EV Sprinter.
