Today, for the first time, I spotted a Smart Car on the streets on NYC. I will admit that I was excited to finally see one up close and in use by someone. It’s described as being just over 8 feet long, gets 33 city and 41 highway miles, is made of 100% recyclable synthetics and costs about $12,000. I appreciate the effort into creating an economic, fuel efficient car that would be handy in small citieswhen you’re looking for a practically non-existent parking spot, but then again, wouldn’t it just make more sense to use the subway?
