quote of the day the unfortunate acronym

“First smart ED Delivered in America.”

Headline in Autoevolution announcing the arrival of the first smart fortwo Electric Drive (ED) in the US.

So don’t forget to plug it in regularly, or you won’t get it up in the morning. Or maybe use “EV” instead of an acronym that stands for certain NSFW difficulties …

    Or worse, they could release a 'special' EDition of the Smart For two. I'm trying to figure out the perspective on the photo though, the nice lady behind the wheel of the ED seems to be so much smaller than the couple standing out side. Perhaps she is petite, but it looks like they photo-shopped her in.

    Is that Roger Penske in the photo?

    If your charge lasts more than four hours, see a doctor.

      Lol, I was racking my brain trying to think what ED stood for.

    I think this article does little but expose the preoccupation and generation of a lot of posters here. Advo, it took me quite some time to figure out what ED the Best and the Brightest as well. Now it occurs to me that that much of TTAC are indeed, of THE B&B of book infamy.
