Out of Norway this morning news that car manufacturer Think Global has released its production version of an electric powered micro car dubbed City.
Once owned by Ford the Scandinavian company aims to produce up to 10,000 units annually from its Aurskog plant by 2009. The plug in units share some manufacturing operations with Porsche and use some big names in producing the vehicle including Robert Bosch, Continental, Autoliv and Tesla Motors.
With 2 + 2 seating similar to Smart and a top speed of 100km/h the City aims to offer practical, environmentally friendly motoring for urban areas with a range of up to 180km.
The vehicle takes ten hours to charge and can manage the sprint from stand still to 80km/h in a blistering 16 seconds. RHD versions are not yet in production meaning we may be spared for some time to come.
