past January to wide acclaim. The company's goal is to have some 1,000
of the all-electric Smart Fortwo's in operation in various cities around the
world by the end of 2009, with some available in the U.S. by 2012 at the
latest. Daimler has been testing 100 or so of the Smart EDs in London since
last year and has said it will also test 100 more in Berlin soon. The tiny
Smart ED will be able to travel some 90 miles on a full charge and has a top
speed of about 74 miles per hour.
