GreenTech Automotive supplying EVs to Domino’s Pizza
GreenTech Automotive took the wraps off its two-seater electric vehicle, the MyCar, and announced a deal with Domino's Pizza.
GreenTech Automotive unveiled last week its MyCar, a two-seat all-electric vehicle that produces zero emissions and provides a range of up to 115 miles, at its manufacturing facility in Horn Lake, Miss.
The company also announced it has inked a deal to provide MyCars to Domino's Pizza for its delivery drivers. The campus of Ole Miss will be one of Domino’s first target service areas.
Former President Bill Clinton and former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour attended the unveiling, which also marked GreenTech’s relocation to the U.S. The company expects to create 426 manufacturing jobs and support 7,400 more.
“Too many people have given up on American manufacturing, saying manufacturing jobs are not coming back. But GTA set out to prove them wrong,” said Terry McAuliffe, chairman of GreenTech. “For too long, America has been inventing products here and sending the production jobs overseas. But we’re part of a rebirth for American manufacturing. We’re proud to bring manufacturing jobs back and prove that the U.S. is still the world leader in technological innovation and manufacturing.”
GreenTech Automotive purchased Hong Kong-based EuAuto in 2010 and relocated the company’s operations and manufacturing to the U.S. The company is leasing the factory in Horn Lake, where workers are now producing vehicles during the construction of its permanent, 300,000-square-foot facility in Tunica, Miss.
