L.A. Auto Show TH!NK electric car goes on sale this Fall

Los Angeles, California - Ford Motor Company today introduced the company's first purpose-built electric car - the all-new 2002 TH!NK city - for sale to consumers at Ford dealers this fall.

Unveiled at the Greater Los Angeles Auto Show, the TH!NK city is designed to tackle driving in both city traffic and on the highway. A full battery charge provides more than 50 miles of travel range, with speeds up to 62 mph.

"TH!NK city is an affordable, fun-to-drive alternative transportation choice when a full function car isn't needed," said Jim O'Connor, Ford Division president. "Many urban areas are facing challenges, including air pollution and congestion. TH!NK city is one step Ford is taking to help provide a solution."

The TH!NK city was first introduced in Europe in 2000. The all-new version includes interior and exterior styling tailored to U.S. customers, as well as such features as power steering, power windows and power locks, dual cup holders; air conditioning; driver and passenger-side front air bags, and a 5 mile per hour bumper.The city meets all U.S. federal government safety regulations.

The city will come in a choice of five exterior colors and boasts a clean design. The body panels are molded from a combination of pressure-formed, co-extruded ABS and PMMA plastics.

The city is a front-wheel drive car with an AC electric powertrain and single-speed gear reduction drive. It's designed with a high-strength steel chassis and an aluminum upper space frame, along with a plastic body panel setup, much like a modern racecar.

A range of charging options will be available, including 110 or 220-volt plug-in options as standard equipment. A 220-volt option provides for a full charge in six to eight hours.

The TH!NK city is the flagship vehicle of Ford Motor Company's full line of zero-emission vehicles. TH!NK Mobility also offers the TH!NK neighbor, a two- or four-seat electric vehicle designed for travel on speed-limited residential roads.
