The City Council is pushing ahead with plans to purchase 15 adapted electric cars at a cost of 14 million kroner, despite financial problems with one of the car manufacturers.

Deputy Mayor for the technical and environmental administration, Klaus Bondam, said there have been no reported problems with the city’s order from Norwegian company Think.

‘They’re due to arrive at the beginning of November and we have a contract, so if they don’t deliver I’m sure we can do something about it,’ Bondam told The Copenhagen Post.


Powered by a 100 kW electric engine and fuel cell stack, the i-Blue is capable of running more than 370 miles per refueling and achieves a maximum speed of more than 100 miles per hour.

Based on the full-size 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 HD pickup truck, the vehicle underwent extensive internal modifications to meet the technical demands and requirements needed to run on a compressed hydrogen fuel system.

In the Quadrivium Fuel Cells system, the various components are distributed around the car, with four fuel cells positioned near to the wheels.
