New York, New York – Electric car company THINK has announced plans to begin selling the THINK City in New York and other select cities in 2010. The THINK City is on display at the New York International Auto Show.
THINK and the U.S. Department of Energy’s local Clean Cities chapter are working together to bring the THINK City, a highway-capable electric vehicle (EV), to customers in New York.
“New York is a logical early market for the THINK City in the U.S.,” said CEO Richard Canny. “New York ranked third on our EV-Ready Cities Index, based on the great fit of EVs for city driving and the strength of state and local government.”
The THINK uses a lithium-ion battery system made in the U.S. by New York company Ener1 Inc. The car is currently in production in Finland and sold in select European markets; the company recently announced plans to begin manufacturing the THINK City in Indiana in early 2011.
