Small Utility Vehicle

We've been deeply intrigued by the new Smart Car destined for sale and distribution in this hemisphere next year. So intrigued we plunked down a (refundable) deposit. Like buying a condo! It's not a hybrid, but it's expected to get gas mileage in the high 30's. And it takes up so little room. Like a Vespa with an exoskeleton. Video and crash video: at high speeds the car may survive but the occupant, perhaps not. Seems our organs are not designed for rapid de-acelleration. But parking is brilliant.
