While we wait for electric cars to show up in showrooms across the country, Think EVs may go on sale through the internet. To me, it seems like the next best thing to throwing in the towel completely. The cars, which have two seats and an 80 mile range, apparently can only reach a very specific niche market of Americans. So, instead of risking all the bananas on building showrooms in metropolitan areas, Think has decided just to sell its cars on the internet. No test drives, no curb appeal, just browse and buy.
It's not the best way for an automobile company to break the idea of a city-only car into the American consciousness. I guess that's why we love Zenn so much.
