smart add-on program meant to make life easier for fortwo owners in Canadian major cities

When you decide to go down the road of smart fortwo ownership, you realize the utility and, with the smart fortwo electric drive, the range limits you are about to experience. However, smart Canada plans to make life a little easier for those considering a fortwo purchase.

smart Canada will be offering reduced parking rates at 17 different lots in Toronto, Ottawa, and Montreal specifically sized for smaller vehicles. Four of the locations currently offer free electric charging with expansion planned throughout 2014.

For owners who occasionally need a larger vehicle, smart Canada has teamed up with Enterprise Rent-A-Car to offer special rates and automatic upgrades to Silver membership in Enterprise Plus. Bonus points can be used toward free rentals.

And, for those who may want to have access to another vehicle through a car sharing service, smart Canada will be proving 30 minutes of free drive time and free membership to car2go in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, and Montreal.
