Ford Motor Co. on Aug. 30 said it will stop selling Th!nk electric vehicles in the United States at the end of the year because of lack of demand, according to the Associated Press. "We're very disappointed about it, but the market for the battery-operated vehicles has turned out to be a business that we really can't sustain," Ford spokeswoman Sara Tatchio said. Tatchio said the Dearborn-based automaker plans to focus on other technologies for cleaner-running cars and trucks, including hydrogen fuel cells and the gas-electric hybrid SUV Escape, due to debut in late 2003. Ford began selling electric-only Th!nk City small cars in Europe in 1999 and began offering Th!nk Neighbor low-speed vehicles, which resemble golf carts, in the U.S. last year.
