Once a vehicle has been certified for roadworthiness by any member of the European Union, that vehicle can legally be sold in any fellow member country. Such is the case with the Th!nk City, which has just officially passed vehicle inspection in the Netherlands.

Issued by the De Rijksdienst voor het Wegverkeer (RDW), this makes the little Th!nk City the first all-EV "real-world" electric car to be deemed fully roadworthy in the EU. The inspection certifies that the model meets or exceeds all European requirements having to do with braking, crashworthiness, lights, mirrors and emissions.

The Th!nk City, which is expected to cost around €40,000 in the Netherlands (according to our source and previous news), manages a maximum speed of 100 km/h (62 mph) and has a range of 180 kilometers (115 miles) once the batteries have been fully charged, which can take up to 13 hours depending on the power source.
