I spotted a Smart Car in Houston a couple of weeks ago from my trusty Corolla while stopped at Kirkwood and Richmond. This Smart Car was apparently purchased from the Sugar Land location. A colleague had been on a waiting list for about a year so I knew they were coming, and it looks like they’ve finally arrived in Texas!
Okay… So perhaps they are not such a big deal in Europe where you see them EVERYWHERE in various incarnations… But it was pretty exciting seeing one in Houston. Not that I want one… Still love my Corolla!
In the picture below, I captured three in one frame in Rome last summer, which is not very special since they are so common there!
Now what I think is really interesting is a car like MIT’s Stackable Car… Not quite convinced by this yet, but it is an intriguing system.
