THINK electric vehicles are heading south. Following on from plans to introduce its electric vehicle range in the U.S., the Scandinavian electric vehicle maker has now announced a deal with energy provider CPFL Energia to conduct a feasibility study on its THINK City EVs in the Brazilian market.

CPFL Energia has purchased three THINK City EVs which will go on show at the 10th Michelin Challenge Bibendum in Rio de Janeiro this week as the first step in gauging the potential of the urban EV in the South American marketplace.

Designed as an urban commuter, the THINK City has a a top speed of 65 mph and a range of 100 miles on a single charge. The vehicle is currently being manufactured in Finland with plans to expand production via a plant in Indiana. The company is also is working with Japanese partner Itochu on developing operations in Asia.

Though a nice concept, I really wish they would redesign the body of the THINK electric car so that it wasn't so damn FUGLEY.
