Just as the Vectrix electric scooter may be resurrected from bankruptcy, so too another troubled electric vehicle may be on its way to a prosperous and successful 2010. Having teetered on the verge of bankruptcy, only to be rescued by a massive financial boost, the nippy Think City electric car once again started production earlier this month. News comes from ElectricAid.org that production of the Think City has restarted at a state-of-the-art new facility run by manufacturing partner Valmet Automotive in Uusikaupunki, Finland. Speaking on the 10th of December (yes, we got to this story a little late), Richard Canny, THINK CEO heralded this as a new beginning for the Think:
"This is a very significant day for THINK. We are back in production and I am so pleased that some of our very loyal customers can look forward to delivery of their long-awaited THINK City before Christmas. The order bank stands at around 2,300 vehicles, and our first priority is to deliver to these customers now that our vehicles are rolling off the production line again. Our next priority is to build on this order bank with continued expansion in Europe and around the world."
