Comments

Project was started in 2005: first prototype vehicle is planned for 2005 / 2006 further five demonstration vehicles should be build during 2006, following a small vehicle fleet by 2007 (within the "HyNor project"). "Th!nk" was a former development of the Ford Motor Company. In 2003 the US company decided to stop its development and sold the electric car activities.
