Smart Times 2013 in Lucerne: A Big Gathering for Little smarts
STUTTGART, GERMANY – June 13, 2013. From 23 to 25 August 2013 the worldwide smart fan community will come together on the south bank of Lake Lucerne against the scenic backdrop of the Alps for this year’s smart times. Several thousand smart enthusiasts are expected in Buochs, Lucerne with their vehicles of all smart model series, some of which have been painstakingly customised or exotically modified by their owners. This year the focus of the world’s largest gathering of smart fans is on electric mobility. 100 percent driving fun with zero emissions: the urban trend brand is already the epitome of electric driving. A further highlight of the event is the smart roadster’s tenth birthday celebrations.
"For smart’s 15th birthday the worldwide smart community has selected Lucerne as the venue for its annual gathering. Switzerland, the birthplace of the smart, is a beautiful and easily accessible meeting point in central Europe for the smart family to celebrate the smart attitude to life," says Dr Annette Winkler, Head of smart. "I’m really looking forward to meeting lots of smart fans, enjoying a great event together and discovering the mountains around Lucerne during the smart parade.
" In Lucerne the organisers have a varied programme in store for the participants including trendy sporting activities, fun excursions to the mountains, live music and interesting talks with designers, tuners and experts. The children’s programme has been greatly expanded: an information and entertainment programme has been put together in cooperation with Genius, Daimler’s young knowledge community, and the University of Zurich, which is fun and also packed full of things to learn. The range of activities is rounded off by an opportunity to try out the smart ebike and test drive the smart fortwo electric drive, the world’s only electric cabriolet, as well as further current smart models.
