think city

Scandinavian electric vehicle manufacturer Think, which just rolled out its 2,500th City pure electric vehicle from Valmet Automotive’s plant in Finland, is gearing up for its arrival on American shores at the end of the year.

The company has started preparations to build the sturdy and reliable two-seat commuter – with a top speed of 112 kph and an operating range of 160 km on a single charge – at a plant in Elkhart, Indiana and plans to launch fleet and retail sales in the US in December.

Currently, the Think City is in its second production version guise, but a third version is scheduled to be produced in the US and enter the market in late 2012.
