The facility is expected to begin operations by early 2021. Production initially will focus on building electric busses, sourcing materials through a localized supply chain.


“The automotive industry continues to be a major job creator in our state’s economy, and today’s announcement is another sign of that,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt said. “Arrival’s decision to locate new operations in South Carolina builds on our international reputation for being a place where businesses can succeed.”
