Our friends over at Electric A!D recently took a baby blue Think City EV from its home in Norway to show it off in Denmark (recharging it onboard the ferry). Turns out another Nordic nation might hold the future for the small all-electric car. A report in VG Nett says that, in the future, Think cars will be made in Finland by Valmet with batteries coming from EnerDel in the U.S. Norwegian EV advocates are understandably disappointed by the news that production will be moved outside of Th!nk’s home country, but at least they can take comfort in the fact that the Think will be in good company: Valmet is the same manufacturer that will make the Fisker Karma.
Officially, Th!nk is not confirming anything, citing ongoing debt negotiations that need to be taken care of before moving forward. Thanks to Joona from Finland for the tip!
