Imagine trying to start a new car dealership network from scratch. That's what SMART USA is doing. The first of the Smart Fortwos have arrived on U.S. soil and will be hitting the roads to 68 Smart dealerships to be open by the end of January 2008.

The Smart is eagerly awaited by buyers who have sold out the first production run via $99 down payments. Be looking for this tiny car soon!

The microcars have been around in Europe for about a decade and has been in Canada since 2004.

By 2010, they're hoping to have an electric, rechargeable SMART for sale in the UK. A protype was already shown at "MercedesWorld" in July 2007.
