The site for all things Th!nk, Electric Aid, has gotten a hold of a new rumor surrounding the Norwegian electric automaker: it may no longer be a Norwegian company. Swedish TV station SVT is apparently reporting that production of the electric City car may move from Aurskog, Norway to Sweden. After all, now has a bit of extra capacity; SAAB stopped production this week. It's all rumor and hearsay at this point, but given Th!nk's recent troubles in Norway, this move might make sense. And remember, Swedish businesses invested $20 million in Th!nk earlier this month.

Electric Aid also points us to a new Th!nk press release that says, look here, that the Swedish Royal Court recently took delivery of two Th!nk City vehicles. The Swedes were introduced to the electric cars last June during "Svenske Flaggans Dag" on June 6th 2008, when the THINK City cruised through Stockholm in a sort of eco-car parade. Thanks to Andre for the tip!
