Close To Greatness~Smart Cars

Smart cars are some of the strangest looking vehicles on the road today.  They are extremely cheap, ranging from about $12,000-$17,000.  The company also boasts eco-friendly tagline with most models getting 38 mpg and the electric models getting up to 87 mpg.    But what is so smart about them?  Weighing in at about 1,500 lb. the smart car’s major problem is that it can be unsafe in a collision.  The company’s solution is the Tridion steel safety shell that acts as a steel “cage” during collisions.   Even with their safety shell, I wouldn’t want to be in an accident like the one below, where a dead tree branch fell from above and impaled the driver.
