Chris Jones Should We Bring Smart Cars to Russia Every country wants to go green but is it time for Smart Cars to bring production to Russia? Russia Climate The Climate of Russia is very cold during the winter and they have record breaking amounts of snow. Smart Cars do not have four wheel drive so driving in the snow would be hazardous. Also, much of Russia's backroads are dirt during the spring when 3-4 inches of rainfall a week this causes the roads to be nearly undrivable by a smart car.

In 1992 the U.S.S.R. was offically disbanded and Russia became a democracy...supposedly. Recently Vladimir Putin has been in the news because he has been in office for a decade and has unwavering power over the country. He has been accused of rigging elections in his favor and recently has come under fire for comparing the corpse of Vladimir Lenin to the relics of Christian saints. So..Smart Cars in Russia Should we bring Smart Cars to Russia...Probably not a good idea. The people of Russia do not have alot of spending money and the climate doesn't support the small car that doesn't perform well in snow or rain which there is alot of in Russia.
