Canada, Mexico, They are not in the USA.


This car, in Europe, cost around $12,000

Can I just order one and have send it to me?

Sure, go ahead, it just get seized by Customs.

you will be really mad.

how did you import this one?

I it belongs to a German friend who it over to use while he is here in the US. is allowed. But he cannot sell the car to a US and it must go back in about a

Then how do I get one?

Wait for they plan to make a version of the Smart ForTwo will be available in the USA.

for car buffs: The possibility exists the brand may be terminated entirely. Or Also- just because might make a US compliant does not mean they launch it in the US in 2007.)

I heard were available to Canada ?

the SMART Fortwo model was to Canada in 2005, but it will be the CDI TurboDiesel model and they are planning to sell 800 units the year (in all of Canada!)

Canada June 30 2004:

The entire allotment of 800 units has already SOLD OUT!

The prices start at $17,000 CDN and go up there, actual list have not been determined yet for ANY of the models!

The cars are still converted to Canadian Standards and be available to those first on the in September 2004.

Canada July 25 2005:

Mike in Canada just informed me 1347 Smart ForTwos sold in the 2004 Calendar in Canda and that a total of Smarts have been to date, 3716 of these are models, 82 are 2006 model cars. thanks Mike!

So why I just buy one from Canada and it into the US?

Last time I Canada is ANOTHER COUNTRY, France, Germany or Spain. it is easier to possibly get the vehicle the US, you will still have the problems with Customs you would have if you purchased one in and had it shipped. You will also not be to register it and get plates for it to legally it in the US.

Is there any Company that can one of the Diesel Smart ForTwo from Canada for use in the USA?

Not you want to wait a few years and maybe $250,000.

Here is a link that describes of the things you would need to do to a Classic Car into the US and it also how the Tourist Visa thing for more recent cars this one). sort of.

about that company is supposed to be importing them and them, why not just buy one from

While there is a real market importer that has working to convert the Smart model for resale in the US and they made significant progress Federal Approval, they are not yet AND it has to go through many hands it actually gets to the End Buyer and hand it passes through has to a cut. Claims of base of $15K are a bit misleading, if these do become available through the market importer, I seriously you will see any priced below Also- rumour has it that only are getting approval to and convert 2003 model ForTwo cars and ONLY the trim line (Passion).

So one would have to assume they either stocked up on back in 2003, or they are USED cars from Rental places cheap, them to the States and then them. Every month announce they are almost and then it never happens.

As of 01 2005, there were no converted Smart ForTwos for sale to US Citizens. Lots of Releases, but not much action. Springs Eternal.

Update June 2005: can finally sell them, but they can only do so THROUGH franchised dealers. And they cost about $25K per They have not released a of their Franchised Dealers

Update July 25 2005: lots of press releases you cannot go out and purchase a Smart Car in the There is NO list of Dealers? Why

Should I buy a Smart ForTwo on

I don’t think you should, you probably get stuck not being to register it for road use. seen several sellers of the USA offer used Smart for sale on eBay and they say will ship to the USA, but all they will do. Once the car the port in the USA, any Customs are yours!

September 13 2005:

Unveiled at the Auto Show in Germany, a version of what the next of the Smart Fortwo may look when it hits the USA in 2007:
