[ UPDATE 2/10/2023 22:00 ] The Smart Malaysia booth will be open from 4-6 October, however, the Smart #1 Brabus will only be unveiled on 5th October.
After months of teasing the single-motor Smart #1 Premium, the Smart #1 Brabus is finally making its official debut in Malaysia during the International Electric Mobility Showcase that’s happening this week. This is your chance to see the top-of-the-line variant of the Smart #1 EV uncovered in its full glory. On top of that, Smart Malaysia is also offering visitors a chance to test drive the Smart #1 Brabus during the event.
