Daimler/BASF: Smart Forvision World Premiere
Daimler AG, Stuttgart, Germany, and BASF SE, Ludwigshafen, Germany, have developed a new concept vehicle that combines both companies’ ideas for holistic electric mobility. The resulting vehicle is the smart forvision, which has been developed with a special emphasis on energy efficiency, temperature management and lightweight design. The smart forvision will have its world premiere at the 64th International Motor Show in Frankfurt, Germany (September 15 – 23, 2011).
Both Daimler and BASF are engaged in wide-ranging research and development work aimed at getting electric cars on the road and ensuring that electric mobility becomes part of everyday life as soon as possible.
Daimler is embracing the age of electric mobility: it is the first car manufacturer to have released four electric production models, and its smart fortwo electric drive is a pioneer among battery-driven vehicles. BASF, the world’s largest supplier of chemical products to the automotive industry, develops sustainable, environmentally friendly solutions for the energyefficient mobility of tomorrow. The two companies have now combined their technological competencies for the first time, developing a forward-looking vehicle concept that offers decisive solutions to the challenges of the future.
