In creating the Forease+, Smart took the eye-catching Forease and improved its form and function with a sleek Speedster design. The concept bound for Geneva features a bright orange fabric roof that stretches right to the rear of the tiny car. Smart says the roof is robust enough to be used all-year round and that it can be quickly and easily removed with two clips at the rear.
Alongside its new roof, the Smart Forease+ incorporates a shortened windshield to further increase its Speedster characteristics. The concept also lacks side windows and has been designed to look rather aggressive from the rear thanks to a large ducktail spoiler.
Viewed from the front, there are headlights incorporating three active LED elements. Additionally, there are small lights found where the vehicle’s front grille would usually be. Subtle orange accents can also be found towards the base of the bumper which, to our eyes, almost looks like a smiley face.
Much like the headlights, the taillights include several LED light elements. Further adding to the vehicle’s character are bulging front and rear wheel arches as well as custom Forease+ wheels with silver and orange elements.
Smart has bathed the concept car’s interior in black Nappa leather, microfiber, and a range of other high-end materials to ensure it’s a nice place to sit. There’s also a large infotainment system in the middle, two digital gauges in the center of the dashboard and a steering wheel that’s had the top removed.
The Smart Forease+ is based on the current all-electric Smart ForTwo Cabrio. The German automaker doesn’t seem to have any plans to put the Forease+ into production.
