Ford’s $5.6-Billion Blue Oval City Will Transform The Electric Car Landscape
Not to be outdone, Texas is also joining Ford’s electric revolution party. The company will invest $90 million in Texas that will go towards job training and career readiness plans for skilled technicians that will work on next-generation EVs. This forms part of a $525-million investment in the US over the next five years for technicians within the industry.
“This is a transformative moment where Ford will lead America’s transition to electric vehicles and usher in a new era of clean, carbon-neutral manufacturing,” said Ford Executive Chair Bill Ford.
With these new facilities, Ford will be much better positioned to cater to states that want to introduce earlier deadlines for the banning of gas vehicles.
