Are Smart Cars electric?

Ok, so, I REALLY like those Smart Cars. They're actually protective because it has like, roll cage bars around it.

    I really like SMART cars, too. They aren't electric, but have very small engines and obviously are light weight so the mileage is great. They do seem to be constructed with safety in mind, ( there IS a safety cage incorporated into the car, just as you mentioned) and only seat two people. I first saw them in Europe myself where they make so much sense because of traffic and parking issues. I can't wait for them to become mainstream here, it can't happen too soon in my opinion! If you're thinking of one, I say Go For It! Lead the way to a better world!

    Nope. Gasoline, and the mileage isn't quite as great as you'd imagine. They're mostly considered fashion accessories in Europe, where they've been around for years now.
