The first THINK City electric cars rolled out of the assembly line in Uusikaupunki in December 2009. This was a truly astonishing achievement, since THINK AS and Valmet Automotive signed the manufacturing contract of THINK City at the end of August 2009. The manufacturing equipment was transferred from Norway to Uusikaupunki, Finland, and the production was started in the record time of only three months. Valmet Automotive took also the responsibilities for the THINK City logistics.
In 2009–2011 Valmet Automotive manufactured 1,794 vehicles for THINK AS.
