Smart Forspeed – Click above to watch video after the jump

Smart apparently thinks it's got a winner with the all-electric, roof-free Forspeed concept that will be displayed at the Geneva Motor Show. Smart vice president Annette Winkler talks up the little fantasy-mobile in the video, saying that the Forspeed is not just a functional vehicle, but that the concept shows that the company is a think tank for mobility. Hey Smart, how about thinking of a way to protect the driver if it happens to start sprinkling.

As we learned the other day, the Forspeed has a top speed of 75 miles per hour and a range of around 85 miles per charge. The "speed" part of the name? That's from the blazing 0-60 time of just 5.5 seconds (minor detail: that's 60 kilometers per hour, or around 37 mph). Still, If you want to see Winkler use air quotes when she says the regular Fortwo is "normal," check out the video after the jump.
