Think Electric Cars
Think continues its senior leadership changes and expansion with the announcement that William Nowicke will join the company as vice presidend of global operations. Before signing up with the electric car company, Nowicke was a VP at "the global turn-around, restructuring, and business advisory firm, AlixPartners LLP." Turn around and restructuring? Sounds like something Think could find a use for those skills in a global operations VP. While no one is giving any details, there's a slight hint i
By mid-2011, the Think City all electric vehicle will be available for sale in the U.S. for $34,000, before incentives. That's what Michael Lock, the company's new chief marketing officer, has told Plugin Cars. The Norwegian company plans to sell between 2,000 to 3,000 of the plastic electric vehicles in three to five stores, most likely to be located in Southern California, the San Francisco Bay Area, New York City, Washington, DC and Indianapolis, near the car's U.S. assembly plant.

Electric vehicle (EV) maker Think and Finnish production partner Valmet Automotive have long dreamed of the day when the automaker's City EV would be available to customers in Finland. First establishing a collaborative agreement back in 2009, Think and Valmet announced today that the City is now officially available in Finland.
The crew at Green Car Advisor recently got an opportunity to try out one of the latest-generation Think City electric vehicles shortly after it landed in the United States. This latest version is equipped with a new Enerdel lithium ion battery in place of the old Zebra battery. The American-made battery has a capacity of 25 kilowatt-hours, which gives the Think a nominal 100-mile range on a charge.
Going on a month-long road trip and only managing to eek out 150 miles per day demonstrates that electric city cars should probably not be removed from their natural environment. The BBC's Peter Curran is in the midst of 4,500 mile journey around Europe in a Th!nk City and needs to average that 150 miles daily to stay on schedule for a return to England by July 7.
Norwegian electric vehicle builder Think has finally launched production of the lithium-ion battery version of its City EV. The 22 kilowatt-hour battery pack is being supplied by Indiana-based Enerdel which owns an equity stake in Think. Enerdel is now in full volume production of the new battery pack which, should allow Think to ramp up vehicle production and expand into continental Europe and then the United States later this year.
As the first wave of customer deliveries of the Think City electric vehicle (EV) continue throughout selected European markets, the company has decided to expand its reach by delivering three City EVs to South America, the company's first foray to that continent. The City EVs were delivered to Brazilian electricity provider CPFL Energia S.A., which will incorporate the urban EVs into its fleet as a way to show its commitment to going green.
