Pioneering electric car company THINK will announce plans to bring the THINK City electric vehicle to customers in New York City.

New York ranked third in THINK's EV-Ready Cities Index based on the great fit EV's have for city driving and the strength of the state and local governments support.

THINK City is a purpose-built, all-electric car designed for urban environments. It can travel at highway speed for more than 100 miles on a single charge with zero local emissions. THINK City is currently in production in Finland and sold in select European markets. The company recently announced plans to begin manufacturing the THINK City in Elkhart, Ind. beginning in early 2011.

Bringing the THINK City to New York will play a positive role in PlaNYC, the city's comprehensive sustainability plan that seeks to reduce the City's greenhouse gas emissions by 30 percent from 2005 level by 2030. The Think City, all electric vehicle provides excellent opportunities for both city fleets and private vehicles operating within the City's borders.
