People who leased the Ford Th!nk City EV and other EV enthusiasts stage a protest when Ford cancels what was a popular electric car program... only months after promising a second generation of Think City EVs designed to meet DOT standards. Another example of a major automaker throwing away a golden opportunity to lead an emerging EV market, instead they continue to perpetuate the wasteful gas-guzzling status quo. Ford originally planned to crush the electric cars, like GM did with the EV1... but after protests in California by EV clubs and protests by Greenpeace at Ford's corporate building in Norway received global media coverage, Ford agreed to instead ship the cars from the US program back to Norway where they were sold to the public.

The story continues: Presently the Th!nk factory in Norway is under new ownership, and the company (Think Nordic) has plans to start selling the new model in 2007. We hope they will sell the cars in the US since the new model has already been approved by the DOT, and the market for electric vehicles is MUCH stronger now than it was just a few years ago. I personally believe, based on my contact with the general public here in Northern CA that they can sell thousands of these cars right now if they put dealers in the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles markets.
