Post Smart considering 4 door model

With seemingly every automaker in the midst of a product expansion, it comes as no surprise that Daimler’s Smart brand is considering a move beyond its two model lineup. Smart’s current lineup only offers seating for two – as the ForTwo nameplate would suggest – but the minicar maker is mulling a four-seater model.

According to The Detroit News, Daimler is seriously considering adding a four-door, four-seat model to the Smart lineup. However, if the project is given the green light, the German automaker won’t go it alone. Daimler is currently holding talks with Renault about co-developing the new model.

If the partnership moves ahead, look for Renault to get a version of the diminutive four-door.

Smart is no stranger to the four-door segment as it produced the ForFour between 2004 and 2006. However, sales weren’t as good as expected, forcing Smart to pull the plug on the project. No word on when the new-age ForFour might bow.

Smart is also said to be working on a sportier three seat model dubbed the ForThree.
