Electric vehicle manufacturer Think has agreed to deliver up to 500 TH!NK city electric-powered vehicles this year to ElmoNet, a subsidiary of Mobility Service Netherlands.

With the Dutch Parliament calling for the rapid introduction of EVs (electric vehicles), the Minister of Transport, Camiel Eurlings, earlier this year announced a fund of 10 million Euros to be made available to support the large scale, early introduction of electric mobility.

"Ambitious visions and concrete measures are required to make the Netherlands the most important experimental garden for electric mobility," said Marjan Minnesma, Director of Urgenda - a foundation that aims to transform the Netherlands into a model for sustainable development.

Richard Waitz, Think's Sales Director, is optimistic about the opportunities in the Dutch market and welcomed this initiative by the Dutch Parliament. "The shift to zero emission clean technology vehicles is a paradigm shift, where Government support is creating an important basis for the first larger scale fleet applications," he said.

TH!NK city is a modern, two-seater urban car which has a top speed of 65mph. It accelerates from zero to 30mph in 6.5 seconds and 50mph in 16 seconds. It can travel for 112 miles in city driving on a fully charged battery.

The Cities of Amsterdam and Rotterdam have already expressed keen interest to introduce the TH!NK city electric car in their region. Think delivered the first TH!NK city EVs to ElmoNet in February, and will continue to deliver vehicles in 2009.
