With a formal unveiling expected next week, the first factory images of the 2016 Smart Fortwo and Forfour have been released as part of a teaser video. These next-gen cars go on sale in Europe late this year as 2015 models and arrive here next summer, although only the Fortwo is scheduled for the U.S. market.

Smart provided no additional information regarding its latest microcars. But based on information presented in our earlier spy shot story, it's believed these new Smart offerings will share much of their basic platform with Renault's new Twingo. The rear-engine/rear-drive layout will continue, with 3-cylinder Renault-sourced gasoline direct-injected powerplants making about 70 and 90 horses backed by a 6-speed manual transmission or optional 7-speed automatic. An EV model also is slated for America, likely fitted with a version of the powertrain found in the current Smart Fortwo ED.
