All the first-series Canadian-market Smart cars were diesels. Then they ruined 
it with the second series by offering only the gas model, coinciding with the 
start of sales into the US market.

Unfortunately the B-Class, which has been offered in Canada for about a decade 
now, was only sold in a gasser config. Presumably to protect Smart sales. The 
Smart fuel economy numbers are unimpressive given what a small crappy car it 
is. Even my 2002 Golf TDI got pretty close numbers, and there are now numerous 
other vehicles on the European market, normal in size, that get better fuel 

The real problem with those first Smarts cars is the transmission, which is 
undeniably horrendous.
