Smart Offers First Ever Customer Incentive
When the Smart ForTwo was first introduced last year, they were selling like hotcakes.
Now it's looking like the party is over. Sales of the Smart ForTwo fell nearly 60% in May compared to last year.
Smart now must offer its first incentive ever to get more sales. The incentive isn't that great, but it's better than nothing.
Smart is offering 4.2% financing for up to 60 months. The program is good through the end of July.
If you've been considering a Smart vehicle, contact a dealership to see if they have extra in stock. You might be able to get a discount on top of the financing incentive.
