Electric vehicle company picks northeast Oklahoma for assembly plant

(AP) A California-based electric vehicle company has selected northeastern Oklahoma for its U.S. manufacturing facility, which is expected to employ 2,000 people. Los Angeles-based Canoo and Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt announced the company’s decision on Thursday. The company plans to build a 400-acre campus at MidAmerica Industrial Park in Pryor, near Tulsa. The company says its factory will include a paint and body shop, along with a general assembly plant. It is targeted to open in 2023. Tulsa was in the running last year for a Tesla electric vehicle manufacturing facility that ultimately went to Austin, Texas.
