Global Green Cars, Inc. (GGCI) announced today that it will proceed with its plan to build an electric vehicle production facility in the State of Kentucky.
Earlier this year, Governor Steven L. Beshear of the State of Kentucky 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 dollar financial incentive package for GGCI to build this facility.
Global Green Cars announced its commitment to go forward with this plan on September 1, 2009, which was announced by Kentucky media the same day. Please see media coverage and webcast video by WYMT News on September 1, 2009, at http://www.wkyt.com/wymtnews/headlines/56667702.html (http://www.wkyt.com/wymtnews/headlines/56667702.html)
GGCI had been waiting to simultaneously announce this commitment with the unveiling of their 2010 G-3 Electric Truck model. The unveiling took place at the Rocky Mountain Speedway in Utah last week (see GSPI's press release and video at http://www.greenstarusa.com/news/09-08-31.html (http://www.greenstarusa.com/news/09-08-31.html) ).
The Company plans on completing the transition of their personnel and operations from Idaho to Williamsburg, Kentucky by October 2009. 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.
