Visitors to the Festival of Lights outside Berlin's Union Film studios were treated to a light and music spectacular starring all three smart electric drive models on 8th and 9th October.
Staged by the internationally sought-after electronic DJ Chris Bekker, the "smart electric symphony" featured four huge Tesla coils and the electric smart fortwo, fortwo cabrio and forfour. The cars served as a giant mixing console, on which Bekker played a track specially composed for the event. The vehicles moved in time to the music and were electrified in spectacular style by flashes of light from the coils.
Daniel Lescow, head of brand and product management at smart, said "As a pioneer of urban electric mobility, this is a great way for us to draw attention to agile and attractive driving pleasure. With our smart electric drive family we want to 'switch people on' to electric vehicles and inspire them."
Every October for the past ten years, the city of Berlin has been transformed by light installations as part of the Festival of Lights. National and international artists present works which turn the city into a giant stage. They tell stories, draw attention to special features and introduce cultures, arts and messages. Berlin's landmarks, historic sites, roads, squares, fashionable neighbourhoods and hotspots of the city's more recent past are showcased using light. The Festival of Lights runs until 16 October 2016.
