DaimlerChrysler AG will produce a variant of the upcoming smart four-seat model at its Juiz de Fora site in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais. With this model, which is based on the new compact car concept developed jointly with Mitsubishi, DaimlerChrysler is effectively expanding its smart product range after the city-coupé, roadster and the compact sedan. This is the first time DC has decided to build a smart outside Europe.
