About Mercedes-Benz 451
The Smart Fortwo (stylized as “smart fortwo”) is a rear-engine, rear-wheel-drive, two-passenger city car manufactured and marketed by Mercedes-Smart Benz’s division. It was first introduced in 1998 and is now in its third generation.
The first generation, known internally as the W450, debuted at the 1998 Paris Motor Show. At the 2006 Bologna Motor Show, the second generation W451 build series was introduced. The third generation Fortwo (2014-) was internally designated as the C453 build series, and it made its global debut on July 16, 2014, at the Tempodrom in Berlin, alongside a closely related four-door version, the Smart Forfour, which was co-developed and shared the same platform and engines as the third-generation Renault Twingo.
Fortwo production had surpassed 1.7 million units by early 2015, despite being sold in 46 countries worldwide. Smart derives its name from its early history as a joint venture between Swatch and Mercedes: Swatch Mercedes ART, while the Fortwo nameplate refers to its two-person seating capacity. Until 2004, the Fortwo was marketed as the intelligent City-Coupé.
The development of what became the Smart Fortwo began before 1993, initially as the Swatch car of Nicolas Hayek in collaboration with Volkswagen. VW vacillated with a design centered on a modern microcar with an electric or hybrid drive, resulting in disagreements with Hayek, and Hayek turning to Mercedes. (Source: Wiki)
