The story continues. AutoblogGreen's new all-things Th!nk source Leif has found another sign that the government of Norway might indeed be readying aid for the ailing electric car maker. Leif writes:

I woke up to the news today that Åslaug Haga, until recently leader of the Center Party and Minister of Petroleum and Energy, is going to visit the Th!nk factory together with Environmental Group Bellona and other high profile center party politicians. I was ecstatic about the news, since this will be the first national politician to speak positively about the cause since the bad news hit. I could not resist to call a couple of them to extend my gratitude and both Hanne Buer Heyerdahl-Simonsen and Dagfinn Sundsbø seemed ready for the fight.

Google's translation of the article Leif is talking about can be found here. He also provided us with a bit of help for the translation:

SP = Center Party
Naturverne = Enviromentalists
Førjulstri = "The Christmas stress period," or just Christmas rush, I would say
Akershus = The name of the "fylke" that Think has its plant in. Similar to a State in US terms but with less power.

All in all, not much has changed since the beginning of the week. The company is in trouble, the government might or might not help. We'll see what next week brings.
