Are you interested in a Th!nk City?



If you are interested in the Th!nk City, then you can sign up on a interest list here:

Get Me A Th!nk - Electric A!D

They are saying the European version has 110 mile range with an uphill speed of 63mph, and that the USA version is expected to have higher specs. Here's a fun video:

I was going to say no, but 110 mile range does make me stop and ... Th!nk.

Have you seen any projected cost figures on the City?

Cool little car... if it can survive the Nissan Leaf introduction.

Wish that Think was doing the Ox concept first:

I agree. Reminds me of a Smart-for-4.

I like it, but for the price, I'm not even going to include my vote/opinion on this one.

I'm gonna try not to add input about new cars that I have no intention of buying, because I don't feel like I should have an opinion about something I'll never buy. Just me, I guess.

Purely off the record, though, Sure, I'd take one.

Copenhagen recently bought a number of these for the COP15 summit. They were built to run on hydrogen and cost almost 1 million DKK each. That's about 200.000 USD.

No, I'm not kidding.

Okay, the Honda FXC Clarity costs ~$500,000 -- and the BEV version of the City will not be anywhere near this range. I have heard only hints and rumors on the costs.

It will be built in Elkhart, Indiana starting next year. Some units imported from Finland will reportedly be for sale Q4 2010. Hopefully, they make the change to the EnerDel lithium batteries (currently they use a Zebra battery), for these.

I hope the Zebra option is retained. People do live in this frozen plain called The Northland, after all.
