Think City THINK’s 5th generation EV
Think Global was one of the first mass produced electric cars along with the: Tesla Roadster, Smart ED, Nissan LEAF and Mitsubishi i-MiEV.
THINK had been developing and producing electric cars since the early 1990s and had 10,000 electric vehicles on the road by 2010. The THINK City was their 5th generation EV. Think was owned by Ford Motor company for four years until they decided to get out of the electric vehicle back in 2003 and in 2006 was purchased by Norwegian investors who felt that climate change awareness and a new wave of global environmental conscience had made the timing right for EVs.
Th!nk City in Finland filed for bankruptcy June 22, 2011, but the factory in Elkhart, Indiana USA continued to produce EVs until August 2012, the assets of the company are currently owned by Electric Mobility Solutions AS.
