1. It’s small.
2. It has four doors.
3. It’s light (350kg).
4. It’s smart.
5. It’s Fast.
6. It’s ELECTRIC!!!

This is the new Th!nk electric car (some write it “Think electric car”). I prefer any of the two. GE has invested $4 million dollars in its conception as a car, and $20 million in conceiving new Lithium-Ion batteries to power the new Think thing, through a company called A123Systems.

They will unveil the new Think at the Geneva Auto Show. The new car will probably have a two-doors version (coupe), and a also a taxi version.

The Ox will have a range of about 125 miles (or 200 kilometers). GE plans to equip Th!nk with a small ICE engine for the hybrid version (like they’ll do with Chevy Volt). The engine would charge the batteries, not act a direct role in the car’s motion. That will allow the small Th!nk to go 280 miles without having to be recharged.

Also, GE thought it would be nice to put a solar battery on its rooftop, so cooling can be obtained from the energy captured from the sun. They’ll also equip it with a GPS module.

Th!nk’s top speed will reach 85mph (136 km/h), with the 0-60mph done in 8 seconds. Pretty good.

Anyway, maybe you won’t think of Th!nk as of a high performance vehicle, it’s merely a city car, where you don’t need speed, nor great power. So its performances are enough for a commuter, your wife, or yourself. You can ride it anywhere, as long as you keep an eye on the battery…
