Smart is a German automotive brand and division of Daimler AG. The company is based in Böblingen, Germany. It produces microcars and subcompacts, primarily the Fortwo and Forfour. The primary assembly plants are the Smartville in Hambach, France. A second plant exists in Novo Mesto, Slovenia. Marketed in 46 countries around the world, production of the Fortwo had surpassed 1.7 million units by early 2015. The name Smart derives from the cooperation of the Swiss company Swatch with Mercedes-Benz: "Swatch Mercedes ART."
In its branding, the company lowercases its logotype and the logo incorporating a "c" and an arrow for "compact" and "forward-thinking" respectively. The design concept for the company's automobiles began at Mercedes-Benz in the early-70s and late-80s. After brief backing by Volkswagen, the first model was released by Daimler-Benz in October 1998. Several variants on the original design have been introduced, with the original being the "Fortwo." The two-seater automobile is popular on crowded city streets in Europe since the late 1990s.
It debuted in the U.S. in January 2008 by carmaker Smart USA. Designed to get 40 miles per gallon, the Smart Car is marketed for city driving. With Smart standing for "Swatch Mercedes Art," the car began as a joint venture between Mercedes-Benz and watchmaker Swatch in the early 1990s. The prototype was exhibited at the Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany in 1997, and production began in 1998 in France. Swatch turned its share of the project over to Mercedes shortly after.
