And, they’re off! It’s a David vs. Goliath race between a small electric car and its bigger, faster competition in this new video from Smart Canada.
The result? No surprise here: the smaller car loses in speed races to all three sports cars it races against. But that’s not the point of the video. In the reveal, Smart Canada drops its car in the middle of downtown Toronto, showing it speed through traffic, moving from lane to lane like Frogger. “It’s the first five metres that counts,” the ad says.
