"smartville": innovative, especially the lean production concept.
The smart Plant in Hambach, Lorraine, focuses on the production of the smart fortwo with more than 800 own employees and around another 800 at suppliers. The assembly line laid out in the form of a plus sign optimally meets the requirements of logistics and assembly operations, and ensures an efficient design of the production processes. Production of the new smart fortwo began in June 2014 and the third generation of the model series is now coming off the assembly line in Hambach. In 2017 the smart coupe electric drive and the smart cabrio electric drive will go into production at the Hambach plant.
