CARB Approves THINK City As ZEV
Vehicle in the newsMake/Model: City
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has given the THINK City electric car approval as a ZEV, meeting CARB's Type II Tier requirements. This will allow THINK to begin selling the EV in California and the 12 other states that accept California's ZEV requirements.
The City has a range of about 100 miles using a lithium-ion battery pack developed by Ener1.
THINK plans to begin delivering promised vehicles to fleet customers in the U.S. soon and will roll out retail distribution to select markets in the second half of 2011. This will be met with a production expansion at THINK's Elkhart, Indiana plant.
And so ...The THINK has been on the roads of Europe since 1999 and is manufactured there at the same plant at which the Fisker Karma will be built (in Finland).
