Abstract:
Ener1, Inc.(Amex: HEV), an energy storage solutions company, today reported that its
lithium-ion battery subsidiary, EnerDel, has installed and demonstrated a
fully functional lithium-ion battery pack in a Th!nk City electric vehicle at
its manufacturing facility in Indianapolis. The integration of the battery
pack into a Th!nk City EV was completed ahead of the schedule previously
announced by EnerDel. The successful completion of this milestone indicates
that EnerDel is on schedule to meet the year-end timetable for volume
production under its supply agreement with Think Global of Oslo, Norway.

EnerDel and Think Global Demonstrate Operational Battery Pack in Th!nk City Vehicle

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL | Posted on June 10th, 2008

EnerDel delivered three functional 27 kWh lithium-ion battery packs to
Think Global earlier this year for testing. Both companies are working to meet
the scheduled roll-out of pre-production units over the next three months.


"This is a very exciting program to be involved in, with an aggressive
time to market schedule," commented EnerDel CEO Ulrik Grape. "Our
collaboration with Think to develop a battery solution for the leading
electric vehicle worldwide, the Th!nk City, has been rewarding. A lot of work
remains both in terms of testing and evaluation, but we anticipate that we
will be able to meet the schedule set by our supply agreement to begin
production of integrated battery packs by the end of this year."


"We are very pleased with the progress EnerDel and Think have made on the
lithium-ion battery solution for the Th!nk City vehicle," said Think Global
CEO Jan-Olaf Willums. "EnerDel has achieved an important milestone and met
our expectations so far. We are confident that the project is on schedule to
introduce the EnerDel battery in production vehicles by the end of the year."
