Smart has today announced the name of its fourth model - the Formore. Arriving in 2006, it'll be a reinterpretation of the SUV, or a Smart Utility Vehicle, looks like it'll be based largely on this year's Forfour, and will usher the firm into a new era of larger-scale production.

As of the beginning of 2006, it'll sit alongside the four-seater, as well as the company's coupé and cabriolet versions of the city car, renamed the Fortwo. The Roadster and Roadster-Coupé will retain their current names for the brand rethink, as they're deemed utilitarian enough already.

The Formore will also mark Smart's introduction to the US. It hopes to sell 30,000 of the new urban off-roader in its first year, complemented by as many sales elsewhere in the world.
