The production of the re-born Norwegian company Think Global's new electric car the TH!NK City began this week outside Oslo, with the first car rolling off the line on 28 November for trials under Norwegian winter conditions before commercial launch in first-half 2008.

In 2008, the factory will reach a full production capacity, equivalent to 3,500 cars per shift. The factory has capacity for double shifts.

Earlier this autumn, Think signed a contract with Porsche Consulting, whose engineers have been working with Think staff to bring Porsche’s experience within “lean manufacturing” into the plant’s layout and parts handling/logistics.

Unlike previous attempts to create electric motorbikes, the EV-X7 can go 180 km (112 mi.) on one 6 hour charge.

The investment would help the company expand and consolidate its position in world's electric car production market.

For the new year, TH!NK has given its most popular car, the City, a complete remake from the ground up.
