It has a top speed of 65mph which will make it the fastest and most advanced battery car to go on sale in the UK. The THINK city can go to 126 miles without needing to be recharged. The car has all the mod-cons of a full-sized saloon, including airbags, powered steering, air-conditioning and electric windows, while its 'fuel' bill will come to just £120 over 10,000 miles compared with about £1,600 for a petrol car.
With a sleek design and zero local emissions, the THINK City is currently used all over the world in a variety of applications. Since 2009 it has continued its work as a fully equipped ambulance in The Netherlands, on an island named Terschelling. One of the West Frisian Islands, a large portion of Terschelling is a nature reserve with the goal of becoming CO2 neutral. The THINK City ambulance is contributing to this goal by supporting the island’s medical services with vital transport and first aid needs.
In addition, tourists in Switzerland can hire a THINK City ‘Alpmobil’ in the resorts of Goms and Haslital, for a totally carbon-neutral mode of transportation on their vacations. A fleet of 60 THINK City EVs is available through some 30 hotels, resorts and other touristic hot spots in the Swiss Alps. Other uses for the THINK City this year included: a removals van in Finland carrying all manner of cargo from washing machines to domestic animals. It is also a popular taxi option in Trondheim, Norway; and in Japan, a trial zero-emissions mail van for the Tokyo Postal Service. Brazilian electricity giant, CPFL, is also testing the car as part of its maintenance fleet in Sao Paulo.
