Santa Barbara Auto Group Explores the History of the smart car

Santa Barbara Auto Group shares the history and evolution of the smart car as it progressed from a unique idea to a world-wide phenomenon thanks to the dedication of a few Mercedes-Benz engineers. Over four decades ago a Mercedes-Benz engineer decided to delve into the idea of a car specifically built for the city.
