It better not be a Chrysler otherwise it will be unreliable (tranny and electrical) by default. It better not be a Dodge either otherwise people will ask, "that thing got a Hemi?" Does an I3 count?

Further they are only expected to be offered in select markets (at least initially) when they do make it here. I would expect they will probably do well on the left coast.
They're already available here...or at least they WERE at one point at select dealers. I'm not sure if they will be in the future. They're selling VERY poorly, and currently are down to only 1 model....they used to have 3 or 4. In fact, Chrysler considered dumping it's stake in SMART a few years back due to poor sales and a few lawsuits.
SMART or GEM?? They had/have been selling GEM's at Chrysler dealerships.(GEM's are electric only and limited to 25 mph {as delivered}) SMART's have not been directly available in the U.S. yet (NHTSA bureaucracy). There was a private company importing them in and selling them out west, but Chrysler has tried to stop them. Below is a copy of an article if anyone's interested.

Smart cars here in Ontario are through Mercades dealers, and have that emblem on the front of the car. I have not heard of dodge or DC releasing them under any other badge.
