Daimler's SMART coming to the U.S.

ZAP, a niche motor vehicle company which made its mark building electric cars (hence its name -- Zero Air Pollution), announced this week that it had received final approval from the US Department of Transportation to start selling an Americanized version of the SMART "FourTwo" micro-coupe ("Americanized" means adding structural supports to meet safety standards and confirming that the emissions meet EPA regulations). Update: Watch the test crash video. (only in IE) [via]
