TH!NK about it: former Ford company returns in 2007
Well that plan went down the toilet when Ford dropped TH!NK in a cost-cutting move. But there is some good news to report for those who might like to see a TH!NK in their driveway. After languishing since then, the TH!NK is set to ride again. The Norwegian team responsible for the original model has gone back to the drawing board, boosting range by 60% and totally refreshing the rust and dent proof thermoplastic exterior. In the hopes of getting the project completed and the new model on the road by as early as next year, the company is looking for workers in almost every position, "from sales director and chief technical officer to factory manager and head of product development."
If all goes according to plan, production will start in Norway next year. Although pricing and distribution haven't been discussed, we do know that the new TH!NK will sport standard anti-lock brakes, power steering, electric windows, and central locking. Woo hoo.
