Baltimore – Washington get “smart”
Annapolis, MD – Mercedes-Benz of Annapolis is pleased to announce that they are now an exclusive dealership for smart brand vehicles. Beginning in January 2008, smart enthusiasts will be glad to know that the highly anticipated wait will be over with the introduction of the newly established smartcenter Annapolis.
The brand was born originally as a joint venture between Swatch and Mercedes-Benz. The designers at Swatch brought ideas to Mercedes-Benz to create what they dubbed as an “ultra-urban” car. Today, smart remains a member of the Mercedes Car Group, a Daimler AG Company. Smart USA is a division of Penske Automotive Group and is headquartered in Bloomfield, Michigan. They are the exclusive distributor for smart in North America and Puerto Rico.
Already a top seller in Europe and throughout 36 countries world-wide, smart vehicles will now add the United States to its list of buyers. The vehicles are set to make their mark in the U.S. as a new definition of innovation, intelligence and functionality. With its efficient size and urban appeal, the metropolitan Baltimore-D.C. market is a sure fit for smart.
The smartcenter Annapolis is one of 67 smartcenters to open in the U.S. The dealership participated in a detailed qualification process, including an assessment of reputation for exceptional customer care.
The smartcenter Annapolis will begin accepting reservations for new smart Fortwos and scheduling test drives in January. The smartcenter Annapolis will sell three trim levels of the smart Fortwo. The Pure Coupe will retail for $11,590, Passion Coupe will retail for $13,590 and the well – equipped Passion Cabriolet Convertible retail for $16,590.
