THINK'S City EV is now available with four seats and features air-conditioning as standard

Electric car company THINK now offers its micro City car as a four-seat version – a first for the company.

The latest generation of its pocket-sized electric vehicle features air-conditioning as standard and comes with a five-year warranty (or 60,000 miles – whichever comes first).

The addition of two extra seats – which stow away incidentally – makes the City “unquestionably, the most attractive EV on the market,” according to THINK marketing chief, Michael Lock.

The company claims an electric range of up to 100 miles on a single charge, and although not on sale in the UK yet - rather in Norway - it's hoped by the firm that it will be available some time in 2011.

Prices for the THINK City will start at around £23,500 when it arrives.

attractive in what way exactly - the designed in the dark styling or the 23.5K asking price"?

What's not to like? Most people will use it for day-to-day transport, which the 100 mile range will allow. The plastic bodywork is in a matt finish, so the saving on polish alone will be massive. All I need is a wind turbine in the garden and I'll be quids in. No more being held to ransom by oil companies for my diesel. So it appears a bit expensive initially, but the five-year warranty must mean that THINK feel it's a long-term prospect for most drivers. Personally, I can't wait to try one!

The price is of course hugely attractive, but only if viewed from the perspective of the builder rather than the buyer.

Deposit on a nice house in west yorkshire or 23k spent on a pile of rubbish that looks like a little toy car that kids peddle in !

Did they ever sort out their crash test issues? If I remeber rightly, the two seat version wasn't very safe?

 

 

It's all about the twisties........

Is this actually classified as a car or is it a quadricycle?

As if air conditioning could make such a nasty little coffin acceptable.

This looks so cramped in the rear that the passengers legs will be behind the drivers ears. If this is the most attractive EV on the market then the marketing chief must be stark staring mad.

room for 4! Great so if you have a crash in one, instead of 2 people becoming statistics, now 4 people can! Amazing!

Even if people are now trying to be greener i fail to see why anyone would spend their hard earned money on this rubbish!
