Green Automotive Company to Create Green Jobs at California All-Electric SUV Plant
|Green Automotive Company and Niyato Industries jointly announced today that they have signed a Letter of Intent in an effort to accelerate the plans of both companies to bring domestically manufactured all-electric vehicles to the US market this year.|
Niyato Industries has the license to convert domestically produced Ford Fusion and Ford Escape models into 100% all-electric vehicles and to market them under the Niyato brand.
Niyato's plan calls for manufacturing vehicles beginning in July of this year. Green Automotive is headquartered in California, which is a strategic location for both manufacturing and distributing Niyato all-electric vehicles to the Western United States.
Kathi Hanley, COO of Niyato Industries said: "Niyato is uniquely qualified to help meet this challenge by using their electric vehicle technology and special manufacturing license from the US Department of Transportation (US DOT). The company will not outsource jobs. Niyato respects Ford Motor Company's legacy, and will do everything it can to help to keep America's work force employed. Niyato is building this company to look out for the little guy,".
"I see this venture generating tremendous value for both companies," stated Fred Luke, President of Green Automotive, "along with a significant number of jobs for American workers with a specific focus on hiring Veterans. It is important to understand that Niyato is using Ford platforms that have already complied with all of the DOT Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS). This means that the Ford models converted by Niyato to all-electric drive are road ready, which places us in the market that much sooner with a very safe and reliable vehicle."
