GreenTech Automotive electric car maker announced it will unveil this Friday, June 6th, the MyCar electric vehicle line in Horn Lake, south of Memphis, Tenn.
The MyCar electric vehicle is somewhere between a conventional car and a golf cart. The company plans to sell the two-seat vehicle to Denmark over several years, since in the US such models are allowed only on streets with speed limits of 35 mph or lower. A car costs around $10,000 and can be charged from household electric outlets.
In 2009 GreenTech Automotive unveiled four full-sized electric cars at a Tunica casino and announced its plans of building a plant in Tunica County, Miss. Meanwhile those plans changed after McAuliffe got involved and GreenTech acquired MyCar. The company also declared it would start production in 2011 but missed that target too.
GreenTech Automotive still aims at building a 200,000- to 300,000-square-foot plant in Tunica County and to step from neighborhood EVs to full-sized cars. Until then the company is leasing a former elevator facility located in the Memphis suburbs of DeSoto County, Miss. The company didn’t give information on how much it had invested in the Horn Lake operation so far or whether it will seek foreign investors.
