ART, Ind.-- An Elkhart company is fighting to stay afloat despite promising to bring 400 to 500 jobs to the Elkhart community.

Think opened in Elkhart in 2010, bringing the automobile of the future to a faltering economy.

The company makes small electric cars designed for inner city driving.

"Originally the company got started by selling to fleets," said Rodney Smith, one of the two employees remaining at the Elkhart location. "We're still doing that."
