Korean Company To Build S.C. Electric Car Plant

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- A company that makes electric cars will build a plant in South Carolina, creating 370 jobs.

Gov. Mark Sanford made the announcement at the Statehouse Thursday morning.

CT&T United will spend $21 million to open an assembly plant and sales center in Duncan.

The Korean company will make its eZone vehicles at the plant. The eZone is a low-speed electric vehicle with a range of up to 70 miles on a single charge.

Electric bus maker Proterra Inc. said in April it would begin building electric vehicles in Greenville County this month.
