Think City Car Joined Big Boys at Goodwood

Norwegian built Think City Car has made yet another step towards promoting itself, this time in Britain, where it attended the Goodwood Festival of Speed. After securing support from several local governments and cities across Europe, Think needed a bit of R&R, so it joined the likes of Bugatti, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Pagani on the infamous Goodwood Hill Climb.

Although it did not shatter any world record, the tiny electric vehicle managed to surprise everyone when it crossed the finish line at a speed of 85 km/h, following the mile-long climb on battery power alone.

This is the first time we’ve been to Goodwood and we are absolutely delighted with the TH!NK city’s reception from the thousands of visitors who have come onto the stand for a closer look at this pioneering vehicle. The typical reaction following the Hill Climb has been surprise at how well the car performs, with even the Marshalls commenting on how well the vehicle handled the infamous Molecomb corner,” Tim Mailey, Thinks' driver for the event said in a release.

Think City Car is not yet available in the UK and its appearance at Goodwood was its first trip on British soil. The feat accomplished in the Hill Climb while running in the Low Emission class (you didn't really think it competed with Bugatti, now did you?) however managed to catch the eye of those attending.

Available in only a handful of European countries, Think provides 180 km range and a top speed of 100 km/h. Starting price for the Think, government incentives included, is in between 14,000 and 15,000 euro.
