The most experience many Miamians have had with an electric car is a golf cart. In this land of glitzy gas-guzzling sports cars, many think electric vehicles belong in a world of yuppie Silicon Valley techies. But smart wants to change that. Smart is bringing their Smart funtestdrive tour to Miami on June 8 and 9. For those of you unfamiliar with smart, you may have seen Miami carshare program Car2Go’s fleet of tiny white and blue cars zooming across the city; their fleet is composed entirely of gas-powered smart fortwo vehicles.
This weekend, you can test drive smart’s newest electric drive, the same smart you know and love with an electric engine that can get you zipping across the city for 68 miles on a single charge. For those of you who prefer a car that sips fossil fuels, you can also try the smart’s gas-powered fortwo which gets a very respectable 38 miles per gallon on the highway.
If past funtestdrive events across the country are any indication, expect free giveaways, grub and entertainment to keep you stimulated while you wait your turn behind the wheel. This should make for an especially fun event to head to before you make your way over to Saturday night's Wynwood Art Walk.
