Last month, Smart used the Yo app to give free rides to San Franciscans in the Smart Fortwo Electric Drive.

In the short video, we get to see the action behind the scenes in Smart's mission control-style operation, as well as the riders' reactions to the tiny electric car. Check out the video below for more.

See some show highlights in the video below, or read the full event wrap-up at Green Car Guide.
