Green Overdrive: A Rare Look At the Think City!

Think, a 20-year-old Norwegian electric car maker, plans to bring 500 of its boxy all-electric cars, the Think City, to fleets in the U.S. this year, followed by a larger consumer launch in the U.S. in 2011. Originally backed by Ford Motors in the late 90’s, Think has┬áteetered on the brink of bankruptcy, but recently has been recapitalized (with plans for a U.S. factory) and currently sells the Think City in Europe. For this week’s episode of Green Overdrive, we got the rare opportunity to take one of the plastic-bodied Think City cars out for a test drive around San Jose, Calif.
