Electric-car manufacturer Think announced today that it has re-started production of its Think City model at a new facility with manufacturing partner Valmet Automotive in Uusikaupunki, Finland.
“The start of production at Valmet Automotive also marks a new start for THINK, which has made significant progress since announcing its re-capitalisation earlier this year with major new investors coming on board,” Think said in a statement. “In recent months THINK has made a series of senior executive appointments from the automotive and clean-tech industries, won major new contracts in the drivetrain supply business, started the roll-out of sales into key European markets and now, re-started production in Europe.”
“This is a very significant day for THINK. We are back in production and I am so pleased that some of our very loyal customers can look forward to delivery of their long-awaited THINK City before Christmas,” said Richard Canny, THINK CEO,
Canny said that the order bank stands at around 2,300 vehicles, and that the company’s first priority is to deliver to those customers now that the vehicles are rolling off the production line again.
