It’s almost ridiculous to look at, but the Smart EQ ForTwo is adorable. His stupid little trunk is cute. The name is cute. It looks like a bowler hat that has been thrown on some wheels and taken for a ride. But it’s an incredible little commuter car (as long as you don’t crash with it) and you could buy one right now for under $8,000. The coupe model saw a range of 58 miles and the Electric Drive model saw a range of 57 miles. That may not seem like much, but come on, are you going to drive more than 80 kilometers with a Smart car?
