smart fourjoy Concept is Officially Revealed [Photo Gallery]
Set to preview the upcoming second generation of the smart forfour, the fourjoy is a kooky concept car in all the ways we were expecting a smart to be.
We are talking fantastically-short front and rear overhangs, with the wheels pushed on the four most outer points of the body and a highly robust tridion safety cell.
Dr Annette Winkler, Head of smart, says: “The smart fourjoy is a study that successfully translates the unique design and the urban driving fun of the smart fortwo to an extremely compact four-seater. Numerous details of previous show cars that received very positive feedback have been incorporated in the fourjoy. The exterior proportions already reveal a lot about the appearance of our four-seater production smart which will be launched at the end of 2014 and will also enable families to travel together in a smart.”
The model's exterior dimensions (3494/1978/1494 mm – 137/78/59 inches) give it a low turning radius of just 9.1 meters (29.9 feet), while the moving power is provided by a 75 horsepower electric engine with an unspecified torque figure.
The engine draws power from a 17.6 kWh lithium ion battery which takes a maximum of seven hours to fully charge from a household socket or less than an hour at a public charging station with the 22 kW on-board charger and rapid charging cable.
