Global Green Cars to Build Electric Vehicles in Kentucky
Global Green Cars, Inc. (GGCI) will proceed with its plan to build an electric vehicle production facility in the state of Kentucky.
Earlier this year, Gov. Steven L. Beshear pledged his support for this electric vehicle production facility and on May 28, 2009, the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority approved a $15.5-million financial incentive package for GGCI to build this facility.
The company plans on completing the transition of its personnel and operations from Idaho to Williamsburg, Ky., by October. Global Green Cars is planning to produce first-stage vehicles in 2010 in a temporary facility and to scale up to mass production in 2011 in a new facility built to meet anticipated demand for its electric vehicles.
Upon completion of the building, assembly lines and logistical peripheral structures, the new facility in Williamsburg will be capable of producing up to 30,000 electric cars and trucks per year.
