January 8, 2002

Ford Motor Co. on Jan. 4, 2002 introduced the company's first purpose-built electric car -- the all-new 2002 TH!NK city -- for sale at Ford dealers this fall. Unveiled at the Greater Los Angeles Auto Show, the TH!NK city features a full battery charge providing more than 50 miles of travel range, with speeds up to 62 mph. 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 is a front-wheel drive car with an AC electric powertrain and single-speed gear reduction drive. 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.
