Smart ForTwo meets success in the US
The Smart ForTwo is meeting a strong demand on the American Market since its launch, but
The demand for the Smart ForTwo is so strong that its American importer, Roger Penske says that he can sell 40,000 vehicles this year although Smart only planned to deliver 25,000 of them to the US. Some customers are expected to wait for the next year batch to be delivered.
The SMart ForTwo is currently being sold through a network of 67 dealers, mainly Mercedes-Benz showrooms. That number will be increased to 74 showrooms by 2009. In the meantime, it is reported that dealers a recording a strong 25% cancellation rate. David Schembri, president of Smart USA, declined to confirm the report.
