TH!NK Ox is a modular platform concept, designed for electric drive
vehicles, for both the European, North American and Asian markets.
It is the basis for a variety of vehicle styles, starting with the
TH!NK Ox Crossover 5-seater. This is possible due to a space frame
concept featuring the main crash structure and the batteries
centrally placed in two compartments in the lower frame.
The MPV version is suggested as a taxi with a larger
luggage space. The MPV version is designed for easy entry and exit,
and a spacious and easy access luggage trunk. The coupé and sports
versions have a larger battery capacity for higher performance.
The TH!NK Ox Platform design allows two different standards of
- High stack: two compartments, allows use of low cost, high range
- Low stack: gives space for flat Li Ion packs, allows lower/upper
frame for sports car and flat flow applications
Scandinavian and clean design Think’s sustainable Scandinavian
design has formed the basis for this truly innovative clean car.
TH!NK Ox is distinguished by the TH!NK product family design
characteristics. It mimics the clean choice of materials from the
TH!NK city, with a prizewinning, unpainted and recyclable exterior
and a 95% recyclable interior material concept, made possible
through the ABS and PP interior systems. A solar panel in the roof
keeps the vehicle’s interior cool when the engine is switched off,
or can even supply enough power to run the sound system on the
Think electric drive The base model of the TH!NK Ox will have a 60kW
electrical powertrain, capable of accelerating to 100km/hr in less
than 8.5 seconds and reaching a top speed of 130km/hr. The vehicle
will be powered by a choice of either sodium batteries or
state-of-the art lithium technology battery packs, allowing optimal
adaption to the type of use and geographic region. The lithium-ion
batteries will employ a next generation nano-phosphate
electrochemistry with an unprecedented combination of power
capability, energy density, and safety.
The TH!NK Ox driving range is targeted at 200km for combined highway
and city summer driving (US06 driving cycle). For city driving, the
TH!NK Ox will be able to travel even further on a full charge, to
over 250km. The platform concept also forsees a sports version with
a higher top speed and a range extended to up to 450km, a range also
relevant for the taxi version.
Easy charging Charging the TH!NK Ox from zero to a fully charged
state from a standard 230V/16A European outlet, will take
approximately 12 hours using the on-board charger. The Lion
batteries can be charged to 80% capacity in less than an hour with a
high power off-board fast charger.
As with all TH!NK vehicles, TH!NK Ox can be charged at any normal
