    By September, Canadian and American dealerships will stop receiving gas-powered Smart cars and the 2017 electric smart model year cars will become the only options.

    Most Smart dealers are also Mercedes-Benz dealers. So this probably means that they're going to stop selling Smart cars altogether, but will continue to offer services for any previously-sold Smart cars (eg - gasoline-powered).
