Tracking The 451s For Canada

498 posts in this topic

Calgary Guy: good news the yellow/silver smart is gone from the loading ramp, and they are moving individual cars on trains, but only a couple at a time, so I guessing they're sending out cars that have been ordered?I'm trying to get a good photo of the smart's its hard as they are up on a hill. Here is an areal view of the dock and outlined in green is the area where the smart's are all parked, its darn good thing they're small otherwise they might have taken up half the dock.I'll head back tomorrow and do my best to take photos, but its really high security around that place, but I say if we all don't get our cars in the next couple weeks we all can just rush the guards and drive away with our cars, I'd like to see smart Canada/MB Canada try and charge someone with stealing their own car ;)

Mine's 073009. All I was told today that it's currently on a train and I should expect it to be here (Winnipeg) in a week.

As I was driving west I saw a 451 on an auto carrier heading east on the Trans Canada between Abbotsford and Chilliwack (Whatcom Road) at 2PM today. Blue/silver passion. Roy

re: 073009. It's a Passion coupe, blue with the black safety cell and black interior. All we wanted for options was foglights & the dashboard instruments; this vehicle had neither (from the factory) but does have the right color combo so we're getting the options installed at the dealer (oem instruments & aftermarket foglights).

:o Oh man I hope one of those is mine! I ordered a smart through the Mercedes-Benz dealer in Saskatoon this week.. due to a bit of luck on my side and a lack of it on someone else's my total wait time from test drive to purchase might be under 2-3 weeks. Could turn out to be 2-3 months but I'll remain optimistic. I have no idea what serial number it is though.

Yes I would say so, as those are the serial numbers of the vehicles. They apparently are really popular in Europe already!

OK, I give up, where did my car come from?Serial # 074872 - Pure - White, A/C, Tach clock gauges - Picked up on Dec 22nd, they told me it came in on the boat that arrived on Wed along with 2 black pures, that were not spoken for!!I don't see any numbers even close to mine!! Very happy with car almost 1,000 kms so far!!

Mike, this would seem to signify that over 100K 451s have been produced to date?

As Ashton says, you are correct....I would guess that the actual production to now is close to 120,000, which for the new car is pretty good for its first year. The problem in 2008 will be short supply.....Canadian, US and European serial numbers are consecutive (not repeated for different markets).
