Beyond the City
Smart Concept #5

Renowned for its innovative and compact urban vehicles, Smart has been a trailblazer since its inception in 1994 as a subsidiary of Mercedes-Benz. From the iconic Smart Fortwo to the versatile Smart Forfour, the brand consistently redefines urban mobility with forward-thinking designs. Now, Smart ventures into new terrain with the launch of the Smart Concept #5, marking its foray into the premium mid-size SUV segment.

Crafted for both urban streets and off-road excursions, this all-electric vehicle boasts all-wheel drive and rugged off-road tyres, ensuring a seamless transition from city to wilderness exploration. Driven by an advanced 800-volt drive system and a 100+ kWh battery pack, the Concept #5 offers rapid charging capabilities, achieving an impressive 10% to 80% battery level in just 15 minutes, with a range of over 550 km on a single charge.

Featuring Lidar technology and powered by the NVIDIA DRIVE Orin system-on-a-chip (SoC), the Concept #5 introduces smart Pilot Assist 3.0 for enhanced safety and convenience. However, it’s not merely about functionality — the vehicle’s generative AI enables lively conversational interactions with the in-car assistant, injecting a dose of fun into every journey.

Sporting a distinctive boxy silhouette, the Concept #5 exudes off-road prowess with features such as a roof light bar, protective skid plates, an integrated winch, and a folding rear step for roof access. Inside, the spacious interior with ambient lighting hosts dual 13-inch OLED screens driven by a high-performance AMD V2000 chip, ensuring seamless access to the vehicle’s wide array of features. A portable speaker and projector integrated into the centre console can be utilized both inside and outside the vehicle, amplifying its outdoor appeal.
