Smart Fortwo Electric Drive heads to Hong Kong for real-world trials
Daimler's mates in the trial, including the Hong Kong Jockey Club and Swire Coca-Cola HK, will use the electric two-seater for six to 12 months, while Mercedes-Benz collects data and services the battery-powered Smarts.
Hong Kong's government is eager to test out plug-in vehicles as it eyes becoming a "greener city," says Edward Yau, Hong Kong's environment secretary. The densely populated Asian city currently has 170 registered electric vehicles and the number of charging stations should increase from 300 to 1,000 by the end of 2012.
