While the automaker released no technical details about this new Smart, the car clearly appears to be geared towards excelling in urban ride-sharing duties. The illuminated LED display in the front grille area reprises similar outward-facing communication technology first seen in another Mercedes-Benz Concept, the F 015 Luxury in Motion that appeared at the 2015 CES show. We’ll know more about this ambitious Smart exercise soon.
