"The electrification of the automobile industry has reached a tipping point. Think is perfectly positioned to capitalize on this trend and is the leader in this rapidly growing industry sector. My view is that Think is where the future of the automotive industry will be."1

- Richard Canny, CEO of Think Global AS, in August 2008.

"TH!NK did not just develop a rather well-finished and professional electric car; the company also developed an intriguing strategy premised on low-volume production, Internet-based sales, and the location of small factories in the markets they were to serve. Unfortunately for TH!NK, the promise has consistently failed to live up to reality as the company lurched through different owners [...] and repeated visits to the bankruptcy court."2

- Peter Wells, a Reader at the Center for Automotive Industry Research3 (CAIR), in September 2009.
