DaimlerChrysler near Smart car decision

DETROIT, Nov. 18 (UPI) -- By mid-2006 DaimlerChrysler AG will have decided whether to sell a line of ultra-small cars in the United States.
The next generation of the so-called Smart car's tiny Fortwo model has been engineered to meet all U.S. safety and environmental standards, the Detroit Free Press reported Friday.
They go on sale in Europe in 2007, said a DaimlerChrysler spokesman.
In the next six months or so, he said, the company must determine if the tiny cars will be profitable in the United States.
