Production for the 4/5 passenger Ox model (pictured above) is expected to start in 2010/2011.

After Tesla Motors backed out of a deal late last years to provide TH!NK with lithium-ion batteries, TH!NK announced at last months Geneva Motor Show a strategic partnership with General electric and US battery suppliers, A123 and EnerDel.

As the first highway-capable electric vehicle intended for mass production, TH!NK's most efficient model is the city which is emission free and 95 percent recyclable. Capable of a top speed of 65 mph (100 km/h), a single charge allows a driving range of up to 110 miles (180 km). TH!NK city meets all European and US federal safety requirements.
