The Think City has a highway-speed range of 100 mi (161 km) on a full charge.

Norway-based Think announced Jan. 5 that it will build a plant in Indiana for its electric vehicle, called the City, and import it beginning later this year prior to completion of the plant. Production in Elkhart County, IN, could begin by early 2011, according to the company. Planned capacity is 20,000 units a year. The two-seater currently is assembled at a plant in Finland by Valmet Automotive, which also assembles the Porsche Boxter and Cayman, and is sold in select markets including Norway, Sweden, and Spain. Ener1, through its subsidiary Enerdel, produces lithium-ion batteries at a plant in Indiana and owns a 31% stake in Think. The carmaker has said it will establish a technical center in the U.S. but has not yet decided on a specific location.
