“smartville”: The smart fortwo is produced in Hambach, France, where the plant’s cross-shaped assembly line is optimally suited to the needs of logistics and assembly operations and provides an efficient arrangement for production processes.
The plant’s green production process is in keeping with the product. The plant has an organic water treatment facility and a heat recovery system.
Series production of the new smart fortwo electric drive commenced in June 2012. Like the models with combustion engines the electric smart is now produced completely in accordance with a standard manufacturing process.
