TH!NK makes its case for fleets

Ford has presented its electric-powered TH!NK vehicle as a 'exciting new opportunity in fleet transportation'.

Typical company users could include architects, parcel delivery companies, local government officers, police and emergency services, Per Bjorneman, vice-president marketing, sales and service for TH!NK, told delegates at the Fleet News Europe Congress 2002, held in Barcelona.

He said usage of the vehicles not only shows a fleet's commitment to the environment, but also 'makes good business sense'.

'TH!NK contributes to a better environment - it also makes a statement about the driver and the company using it. It is not just an environmentally friendly car, it is a real ability to fulfil a fleet's need economically,' he added.

Bjorneman highlighted the fact that the Metropolitan Police in London has become the first in the UK to put two TH!NK city cars on its fleet. 'It looks and drives like a normal car,' he added, 'but offers low quality costs and some tax exemptions.'

Bjorneman added: 'Our plan is to make this car available across Europe.'
