Smart Forease+ Cabrio Concept Headed to Geneva

The electric Forease cabrio concept from smart features a removable soft top that you need to find storage for.

Next week’s Geneva Motor Show will serve to introduce the Smart Forease+ Cabrio Concept. Last October, at the Paris Auto Show, Smart introduced the Forease Speedster and this is the follow up.

Looking forward, these two concepts indicate and support Smart’s plan to drop internal combustion engines completely by next year as they both share shares the Speedster’s 80 horsepower and a 17.6-kWh battery setup. The Forease Speedster’s body is replaced by a slightly more conventional convertible figure but beyond that, this little drop top is style very much a concept.

The absence of side windows and a relatively miniscule windshield are clear signs that this is a styling exercise however numerous aspects of the concept are likely to make their way to a future production car. The exposed LED headlights are very cool and we’re big fans of the oversized super-aero wheels. The removable soft top features a fabric hard shell that will improve durability without increasing its weight – which is important as it needs to be manually removed and stored.

We’ll know more about the Forease Concept in a few short days.
