The FlyBo electric Smart clone lands in Saginaw, MI
Like the original, the Chinese copy has rear wheel drive and dealer Dave LaTarte recommends that owners not drive it in the snow. However, with that limited top speed, winter handling is not likely to be a problem. The FlyBo is classed as a neighborhood electric vehicle and is only legal on city streets with limits up to 25 mph. Fortunately the maximum speed means that if the crash resistance of this thing is typical of Chinese cars, the damage shouldn't be too bad. It's not known how SmartUSA or Daimler feels about this car, but it's safe to assume they won't be thrilled.
