498 posts in this topic

The low gas prices and the government ECO rebate being finished is sure hurting sales.

in edmonton, theyre outright offering better rebates than the govt... one smart had a $3500 rebate sticker on it.The lot is full too, not only with 451's but 450's.

And another week, another 185 smart fortwos for Canada. Look for the fire sales to begin this summer.244192245336246019246344247732247896251906266806272953273025273364273472273482273512273535273571273576273580273589273735273852273944274041274077274085274093274097274117274198274207274231274264274268274272274277274298274495274503274538274578274598274615274619274623274627274637274654274691274727274732274769274773274777274795274817274823274843274852274873274882274928274946274950274963274973274977274981274991274995274999275007275071275085275106275111275126275140275159275163275172275199275207275212275221275233275241275246275263275267275275275295275307275311275347275356275360275364275396275456275472275510275542275546275550275558275570275574275591275652275696275720275765275793275802275867275885275902275927275931275935275955275964275968275976275989276036276045276058276066276143276147276188276196276205276238276246276264276313276339276364276370276378276390276430276434276438276446276454276486276490276502276526276574276594276610276634276642276646276658276670276678276714276726276730276747276751276779276907276935276951276959277007277019277031277045277049277125277129277150277172277324277346277466277482277494

Nearly as I can tell, the importer will have about 900 unsold smart fortwos on its hands in a week or so. That's about half a year's supply, at the rate they've been selling this year. But wait, there are another 1600 2009 models yet to come!

Another 57 cars left two days ago. Notice in this list and the ones above it that there are some very out-of-sequence serial numbers in the shipments, from a couple of months ago! Perhaps these are some of the BRABUS Edit10n cars? These are hauled off to BRABUS, stripped and repainted etc so no doubt that would delay their shipment by several weeks.248220276690276811276823276855276947276975276987276999277011277070277108277116277120277232277261277269277378277390277426277510277640277801277837277892277898277923277935277942277966277996278002278009278015278038278047278105278110278151278176278184278198278225278233278336278371278381278385278425278456278476278484278494278597278640278645278655278738

Probably not; have you checked Honda's or Toyota's lots recently? Sales are down practically everywhere except Mercedes Benz for some reason.

The latest shipment, arriving on May 20th:

282650

284491

284580

284977

285537

286021

286028

286172

286302

286354

286735

286751

The lowest of these serial numbers is the most interesting because it represents an unusual car, which has the following VIN:

WME4513801K282650

This is a European market VIN of a left hand drive coupé, therefore it's a Euro model with the engine code of 80....which is the 52 kW mhd model.....

It must be coming to Canada for testing/certification.

Encouraging news. I was worried we'd be offered only regular gassers for eternity. Variety is the spice.

mhd = stop start gas engine with 52 kW. Rest are 52 kW straight gas.

And a few more coming on June 3rd. It seems as though the orders have been severely curtailed, as there is a large over-supply in Canada now:286544288571288971288989288995289077289188289244289271289319289357289399289480289559289623289631289652289661289738289789289816289820289828289855289859289869289980290117290140290155290185290199290210290214290220290229290234290251290274290301290343290378290392290554290622290770290840
