New TH!NK city EV Makes UK Show Debut

Electric vehicles have been a prominent topic at this years British International Motor Show. With the public debut of a 700hp Lightning GT to the more conventional NICE offerings, Norwegian electric vehicle pioneers, TH!NK, introduce their own for the first time in the UK.

Billed as the world’s only crash-tested and highway-certified electric car, the two-seater urban car hits a top speed of 65 mph and an in-town range of 126 miles on a full charge. To charge the batteries from 20 per cent capacity to 80 percent takes just four hours. Besides no road tax and no congestion charge, the cost in electricity to cover 10,000 miles is £100.

Production started this year in Norway, and the first batch of right-hand drive cars will be delivered to UK customers in summer 2009. Prices of the TH!NK city will be announced closer to the on-sale date.
