I heard that segment. Didn’t catch the name of the car though. Somebody around here drives a really tiny car - I’ve seen it at the grocery store parking lot - but I don’t think it’s the one Quinn was talking about. I wouldn’t want to drive it in the snow, but I bet it’s really good on gas!

The car is named the "THINK".

Electric Car Company Files For Bankruptcy...Again

The third bankruptcy of Norwegian electric carmaker "Think" should be an indication that electric cars aren't exactly the best products on the market.

“Think filed for bankruptcy after failing to attract adequate capital to continue funding operations,” Salem said in an email. “The bankruptcy process does not include Think North America, which is a separate legal entity. The trustee will determine the future disposition of Think North America’s assets.

This is the third – and likely the last – trip to bankruptcy court for Think since its founding in the early 1990s. (Battery maker Ener1, Think’s largest shareholder, stated in a regulatory filing that it expected to take a $35.4 million charge.)

Think may be bankrupt, but cars are still available

If you were smitten by the little electric Think City and thought the company's recent bankruptcy put the kibosh on your chances of ever owning one of the plastic-paneled car, then *ahem, think again. It seems there are still some of the city runabouts to be had if you look in the right place.

One such location is Green Wheels in Chicago, IL. The dealership, as the name suggests, specializes in all-electric and hybrid vehicles and has a couple post-rebated demos on hand they can sell for as low as $17,995. If you're willing to lay out $31,500 for a brand-new one – and remember, there are rebates still available in some states that can bring that initial sticker down below $20,000 – they have a couple of those as well and say that they have access to more. While that price is nicely down from the pre-bankruptcy $36,495 MSRP, it's a little uncomfortably close to that of the Nissan Leaf and Mitsubishi i. Still, we liked the little coupe when we drove it and for some, this car just might be the bee's knees.
