The Electric Car is Coming...

Actualy a scrapped Ford design, the Think City will reportedly be available in the US starting in 2008. For those of you who fancy an electric vehicle with refreshing Norwegian simplicity, it will be significantly cheaper than the Tesla Roadster sports car that goes for $98,000. The Think car will cost around $17,000, but consumers will have to lease the battery for an additional fee.
The Think batteries are actually made by Tesla Motors, but are used in a much more humble, practical manner.

This reminds me of the plight of the GM EV1, but with a better ending!
