Where will Arrival Electric Vehicles Locate 2nd US Microfactory?


Arrival is a popular producer of electric vehicles. Now, they are planning to soon add its second US Microfactory in Charlotte, North Carolina. They have chosen here because it will provide them with Right to Work benefits that many states simply don’t have. In addition, they also plan to create 250 new jobs for the area. So this will provide a huge economic boost to Mecklenburg County as well. This is just another example of how Right to Work states provide more opportunities.

From Area Development Magazine:

“Arrival is excited to expand its presence in Charlotte. We look forward to playing an even bigger role in contributing to the local community and bringing onboard the region’s local talent. Our newest Microfactory will be producing two different classes of EV Vans for our US customers, expanding the zero-emissions options for fleet operators and accelerating the mass adoption of electric vehicles. We are pleased to increase our investment as we extend our partnership with the City of Charlotte. We will continue to see strong demand for our vehicles as more operators transition to electric.” […]

“We’re excited by this significant milestone that will enable UPS to economically deploy electric vehicles throughout our global operations at an increasing pace. […] At UPS, we’re laser focused on finding operational efficiencies. Establishing factories that can quickly serve both the European and North American markets is a masterful use of logistics. We can’t wait to see UPS’s new electric vehicles roll out of this factory as this is also one of many paths UPS is taking to reduce its CO2 emissions.” […]

“Arrival’s continued expansion in the Charlotte Region is a testament to our existing strengths in manufacturing[…]. Arrival’s reimagining of transportation will benefit our entire region, and the company’s multifaceted growth here is a model for how the City, County and surrounding counties can deliver on what businesses need to succeed. Together, we are building a better future for us all.”
