Ford is thinking (pun intended) twice about their plan to eighty-six the 350 TH!NK electric city vehicles currently in operation in the United States after a proposal from the Norwegian Ministry of Transport offered to buy the vehicles and resell them in Norway. The Blue Oval is giving it the old chin-scratching treatment and will announce an official decision within the next few weeks. Regardless of the possible Norway deal, Ford will definitely be withdrawing TH!NK's from the U.S. market. The cars were on the road in the first place for research purposes only, and they operated under an exemption from the NHTSA. There's no word on what if anything Ford accomplished with the project, besides the mean-spirited temptation of the masses with a small, economical, fuel efficient urban vehicle that would never see large-scale production.
