Default Smart Car to Unveil Pickup Truck

Smart, the Daimler division that produces the super-tiny Smart ForTwo minicar, will unveil a pickup truck version at the Detroit Auto Show in January.

It will, of course, be a super-tiny truck. At under 140 inches long, the Smart For-us concept vehicle is about six feet shorter than a Ford F-150 pickup -- the best-selling passenger vehicle in America.

Currently, the Smart brand is a one-car line-up. Smart executives have said they plan to expand that in the near future. Still, the automaker has not announced any specific product plans.

"In a tongue-in-cheek manner, the For-us signals that this is the right car for the young-at-heart with active lives who attach importance to low emissions and taking up minimum road space," Smart said in its announcement.

For now Daimler is only providing drawings of the vehicle.
The concept truck is driven with a 55 kilowatt -- or 73 horsepower -- electric motor. The bed is designed to be large enough to hold two bicycles with the tailgate down.
