V-Vehicle Begins Work on Plant

San Diego-based V-Vehicle has begun work intended to double the size of a former GM parts plant in Monroe, LA, according to The News Star newspaper. David Hitchcock, V-Vehicle’s director of assembly operations, told the newspaper that construction of the 400,000-square-foot plant is expected to be completed in less than a year, which would be mid-2010. The startup carmaker, which has venture funding from Google and Kleiner Perkins, has announced plans to manufacture a greener and more fuel-efficient automobile.
