Blount County (WVLT) - The Smart Car, just imported to America this year, is causing quite a stir.
A Blount County couple is the first to own one in our area. Charlie and Sandy Hill loved the look of the 2 seater, 2 door Germany made mini mercedes.
He put a 99 dollar deposit down a year ago, and it took a year to get the vehicle. It has manual and straight shift, a sun-roof, front and side airbags, and it gets 40 to 50 miles to the gallon.
"When we drive on the road we got up to 46 miles on the gallon we got 40 miles to the gallon on our first tank," car owner Sandy Hill said.
There is a waiting list.
