Electric economy car rolls off line; company gets $25 million

The Norwegian company, which plans to produce a line of all-electric sedans, produced its first car last week, said company President Jan-Olaf Willums.

It’s got money too. Last Friday, the company began to seek venture funds. It got commitments for $50 million in funding and accepted $25 million, he said. Later in the spring it will try to raise an additional $50 million.

The TH!NK electric cars will first be sold in Norway and England in the fall of 2007 and then come to the U.S. in 2008. Willums was a little vague on the pricing. Consumers would buy the cars and also pay a monthly fee to lease the battery from Think Nordic. The electric car company is leasing the battery as a way to provide more security to buyers. If a battery fails, the company will take it back.
