As component of this, the group declared in May well 2022 an all-new committed EV plant and battery manufacturing facility will be constructed in the U.S. in Bryan County, Ga. Coastal Ga was selected because of its shut proximity to the Port of Savannah with superb freeway and rail transportation.
The $5.54 billion financial investment, with an extra $1 billion additional by suppliers, will result in, by 2025, the manufacturing of up to 300,000 units on a yearly basis.
