The appear to be of the all-new next generation Smart car. The complete revamp of the little car built by Mercedes is being done in collaboration with Renault.

According to some reports the new platform for the 2015 Smart ForTwo is dubbed Project Edison and will also form the basis of the forthcoming Renault Twingo, and is likely to be a little bigger than the current Smart car.

It’s likely to keep the rear-engined, rear-wheel drive layout, but could also form the basis of a larger ForFour – although the last time they introduced that it didn’t last on sale very long.

He also captured a disguised Mercedes. This is less easy to discern, especially as there are a whole raft of new Mercs on the way, but I would guess at it being the a CLA – perhaps a new Shooting Brake (estate/wagon) version.

It’s unlikely either of these cars would be coming to our region officially.
