First production series images - smart's 2022 SUV

We remember: The brand is rebuilding and organizing everything fresh. From what I have heard, the next 1-2 years will provide more clearety, but we have to give them their time. I can also confirm that smart is very concerned about its community. They are very concerned about the fan base and don't want to lose contact with them.



If you look closely, you will find many cars


I will not ramble infinitely, you can see the pictures for yourself. But of course I would also like to mention a few thoughts and impressions i have.


Personally, I think that it looks similar to the Mercedes EQB from behind.

In the front I notice the relatively large cooler. Then there are even the two side slits, as we already know from the facelift of the fortwo and forfour.

In the side view, I notice that what I would identify as a battery is only about half as long as the wheelbase itself. In addition, of course, the B-pillar is noticeable. As already reported from my interview at the IAA, the production version will have normal doors. It will also be the first volume smart with all-round disc brakes, before it, only the original forfour had them. Of course there will be smaller rims and tires. And I also guesstimate, that the doorhandles will be somewhat mechanical. Maybe like the ons of the Model 3?

In the oblique view of the front, I also get the impression that the hood has been made a bit simple. A bit like the Mini, but the front row, around the headlights, should stay down. I also notice that the charging socket is now drawn. Back left, where I think every car should have its socket. But I also know that the position of the charging socket is a never-ending story. Halfway indicated, I would also think to be able to decipher an openable skylight roof, but that can also be a misjudgment.

In the oblique view from the back, it is also noticeable that there will be roof racks. Will you actually be able to strap something on them?

It will definitely be exciting. It seems smart on schedule and so it's only a matter of time before we see the first prototypes driving around. European certification should not be long in coming. Here's a few pictures of the concept they showed at Munich:
